What Mad Pursuit: A Personal View of Scientific Discovery is a book published in 1988 and written by Francis Crick, the English co-discoverer in 1953 of the structure of DNA. In this book, Crick gives important insights into his work on the DNA structure, along with the Central Dogma of molecular biology and the genetic code, and his later work on neuroscience.
Candid, provocative, and disarming, this is often the widely-praised memoir of the co-discoverer of the double helix of DNA. Show description. Nonlinear Computer Modeling of Chemical and Biochemical Data

Lively and entertaining, this memoir details Crick's early beginnings; his involvement in the discovery of DNA; how the story of DNA made it to the television screen; Crick's work in unraveling the genetic code; and his present involvement in neurobiology at the Salk Institute, where he has been affiliated since 1976.

Science in this century has become a complex endeavor.
For instance, the discovery by Watson and Crick of the structure of our genetic material was based on the construction of a physical model comprised of little metal sheets. The Watson and Crick model facilitated the scientific dis- covery process without looking to accurately mimic biological reality; rather, it employed a suitably defined abstraction.
