- Book review: The Eighth Day of Creation by Horace Freeland Judson
He has talked with nearly everyone involved, and The Eighth Day of Creation is a unique oral history of a scientific revolution; to my knowledge there has been nothing else like it. The Eighth Day of Creation is a monumental work. Arising out of Judson's acquaintance with Max Perutz in came the idea of a book about the discovery of the structures of cellular macromolecules.
Eighth Day Dawning | St. Paul Center
Following a discussion with Jacques Monod in , Judson expanded his planned book to a general history of molecular biology. The result is based on interviews of over scientists, cross-checked and re-interviewed over a period of seven years.
The book was serialized in three issues of the New Yorker in November and December, The Eighth Day of Creation is a richly detailed account of how molecular biologists came to understand the fundamental processes of life - in short, how they explained heredity. It is one of the century's most celebrated works of science writing.
