The Race for the Double Helix! Oh, not, that's the book by James Watson. Not to be undone by Anne Sayre's book "Rosalind Franklin and DNA" ... Franklin never quite got the credit she deserves. But here, we have Francis Crick's account, sort of an autobiography and signed.

Crick’s account of his participation in the unraveling of the mysteries of DNA’s double helix won praise from his colleague James Watson as “a direct pipeline into the extraordinary mind of Francis Crick.” In 1962 Crick, along with Watson and Maurice Wilkins, received the Nobel Prize.
