New book by James Watson: Perfect for anyone who has ever learned something from a father
Date:6/5/2014

NEW YORK JUNE 5, 2014 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press is pleased to announce the publication of Father to Son: Truth, Reason, and Decency by James D. Watson. The book is an engaging work that chronicles Watson's lineage through thought-provoking reflections, memorabilia, and imagery.

Many of us wonder how our heritage has influenced who we are and what we have become. The renowned scientist and author James D. Watson has more to reflect upon than most. A Radio Quiz Kid at 12 and a University of Chicago student at 15, Watson at 24 had a scientific discovery to his creditthe structure of DNAthat would win a Nobel Prize and forever change our understanding of genes and inheritance. Now, after a lifetime of accomplishment in research, writing, education, and science advocacy, Watson has delved for the first time publicly into his own lineage.

Father To Son was first intended as a small, privately published collection of the writings of his father, James D. Watson, Sr. But when Jim Watson, Jr. began investigating his family history, what emerged was a more complex storythe chronicle of an archetypical American family from before the Civil War to Vietnam. In this book, Jim Watson portrays these lives in a fascinating narrative, illustrated with previously unpublished photographs and period documents, that ends with an affectionate tribute to his father, a man of principle, decency, intelligence, and reason, from whom Jim Jr. learned liberal politics and incisive writing.

There has been warm early praise for Father to Son. "In this poignant book, Dr. Watson savors the evidence he finds about his father's life and values. It's a perfect book for anyone who has ever learned something from a father," says Walter Isaacson, author of Einstein: His Life and Universe and Steve Jobs. Hannah Holburn Gray, President Emerita at University of Chicago, commented "This is a charming and vivid book, one that a
