Recently I read James Watson's The Double Helix and Brenda Maddox's biography of Rosalind Franklin, Rosalind Franklin The Dark Lady of DNA.
Personally, his memoir triggered my interest to find out about the real 'Rosy' (as she was referred to by Watson), and thus I went on to read Brenda Maddox's biography of Rosalind Franklin, Rosalind Franklin--The Dark Lady of DNA.
