Storyline well told while remaining continuously informative. I appreciate that the information was made available to the laymen without sacrificing the quality of technical details for those familiar with genetic and biochemical jargon. I deeply enjoy how Dr J. Watson never shies from fully articulating his personal opinions on critical topics, while providing a broad perspective analysis of not just his own rationales/conclusions, but of the opposing perspectives as well. He challenges his readers to not only form their own opinions, but to actually process the logical deductions from the available facts before doing so. I found this refreshing because these subjects are too often avoided for conflict aversion among those who seem incapable of debating intellectually rather than emotionally. Who seem to prefer emotional manipulation to ignorantly (or arrogantly I guess for some) protect their cognitive dissonance, rather than allowing their opinions to be as dynamically adaptive as our scientific understandings steadily change and grow. His unapologetic courage to address these issues openly and verbalize that fallacious beliefs are still just that, no matter how many people believe in them is remarkable, and I found it inspiring.

Beautiful

I can't stop playing it over and over again. I wish there were more like this.
