^ I've read that, and it's excellent
! He made the subject of quantum theory, relativity and string theory seems so easy!
by James Watson, published in 2003 as a celebration of 50 years since the 'discovery' of DNA. My biology is limited to Year 10 high school stuff, yet I found the book not only interesting, and at times exciting to read, all the technical details were pretty easy to understand.
Will go through my library for other books later...
