Pressestimmen

Berg (a Nobel laureate biochemist at Stanford University) and Singer (a former president of the Carnegie Institution of Washington), are thoroughly acquainted with Beadle's work and its place in the history of genetics. Not only do they tell us a lot, both scientific and personal, about Beadle, but they set the stage by describing his associates and their work. The authors have done their homework, reading the old literature and conducting hours of interviews. The result is a full, accurate, authoritative, and balanced biography. And their writing is splendid as well... One of the delights of Berg and Singer's informative biography is their vivid portrayal of the real Beadle. Science The book tells us in detail about Beadle's two marriages, the salaries he earned (but not their equivalent values today), his journeys by ship and by train, and the fact that he succumbed to Alzheimer's disease. There is plenty here for everyone. Those interested in the history of genetics will want to read the whole book, but today's students would benefit from just a few chapters. Nature Berg and Singer's biography of Beadle is authoritative and complete, in that it covers in considerable detail both scientific and personal aspects of the life of this remarkable (in my view, almost uniquely appealing) biologist-administrator.
