James D. Watson looks back on his extraordinary and varied career - from its beginnings as a schoolboy in Chicagos South Side to the day he left Harvard almost 50 years later, world-renowned as the co-discoverer of DNA - and considers the lessons he has learnt along the way. The result is both an engagingly eccentric memoir and an insightful compendium of lessons in life for aspiring scientists. Watsons manners range from those he learnt bird-watching with his father during the Great Depression (Avoid fighting bigger boys and dogs and Find a young hero to emulate) to the manners appropriate for a Nobel Prize (Have friends close to those who rule). He evokes his time as a graduate student in the 1940s (Hire spunky lab helpers); the excitement of working in DNA for the first time as well as having his first dates; his time working as a White House advisor; and at Harvard in the 70s. Avoid Boring People is a quirky, original, wise, and infuriatingly un-put-downable blend of candid anecdotes and revealing insights into the life of one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century.
