What Mad Pursuit

F. H. C. Crick
Basic Books Inc
Publication date: 


ISBN 0-465-09138-5 ; now in print again!

Crick's book was written many years after the discovery of DNA. Although it's an interesting book to read, and an important book, it's now out of print and hard to find. I guess that the fact that it wasn't as sensational and gossipy as "The Double Helix" hurt sales.
