Praise

“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
