Horace Judson has corrected a few minor errors remarkably few for such a fact-filled book , given a sharper emphasis to Frederick Sangers' work on protein sequencing to reflect his Judson's conviction of its central importance, and added some personal details to a biographical sketch of Rosalind Franklin.

The Eighth Day of Creation has aged well, like a good vintage, and its very good to have it available again.
