He was the first director of the National Center for Human Genome Research of the National Institutes of Health from 1989 to 1992. A member of the National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society, he has received the Copley Medal of the Royal Society and is a Knight of the British Empire (KBE). He has also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the National Medal of Science, and, with Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1962.

Reviews

"Aspiring Nobel laureates, pay attention. The road to the prize is laid out for you here. A book to be highlighted and handed down."
--Seed Magazine

"Insightful, useful and on target about science, competition, leadership, teaching and academic success. . . . Watson remains one of the most fascinating scientists of our time, as iconic in some respects as is the double helix."
--Nature "Entertaining. . . . Watson passes on what he can to young scientists coming up and to the rest of us as well."
--Los Angeles Times "Watson is both a scientific genius and a larger-than-life personality. . . . If you want to learn how science gets done in the real world . . . Watson makes for a wonderful guide."
--The Boston Globe "Vintage Watson: brash, bumptious, brilliant--and never boring."
--Kirkus "Watson proves as engaging as ever."
--Booklist "Entertaining and historically revealing."
--Publishers Weekly
