Book Title: Eighth Day of Creation

Author: Horace Freeland Judson

Book Description:

I've always admired the skill in which Judson details the early days of molecular biology. He not only describes the key individuals and events, but also manages to capture the wonderment and thrills of doing science. This book is especially meaningful to me because I read it before I started working as a graduate student at the Lab of Molecular Biology in Cambridge and then again when I was actually there. I will always be grateful that I had the opportunity to interact with wonderful individuals in this book like Max Perutz and Aaron Klug.
