I was expecting a high level, low-content book about DNA. But this is actually quite detailed and does not talk down to the reader. After a brief introduction to the history of genetics the book dives right in to the chemistry of amino acids, nucleic acids, RNA, RNA polymerase, and (naturally) DNA. All very engaging and informative.
