—Michael McClure, as quoted by Francis Crick6 In his 1998 autobiography
Dancing Naked in the Mind Field, Nobel Prize– winner Kary Mullis details his
invention of Polymerase Chain Reaction or PCR. While both the topic—the
invention of a veritable Xerox machine for nucleic acids—and the genre—
scientific autobiography with a hint of scandal and the promise of a forbidden, “
naked” truth—encourage the telling of a heroic tale of innovation, Mullis's
narrative continually highlights ...

The journal Science listed Dr. Mullis's invention of PCR as one of the most
important scientific breakthroughs in human history. It has influenced popular
culture, science fiction, and even paleobiology. Dr. Mullis earned his Ph.D. in
biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley. He is the author of
numerous scientific papers as well as the book Dancing Naked in the Mind Field,
in which he makes a compelling case for the existence of greater mystery in the
world around us.

I bought a copy of Kary Mullis' book, Dancing Naked in the Mind Field, because I'
m interested in the lives of scientists. It seemed unlikely when I began the book
that I'd find much common ground. Mullis is a world-renowned molecular
biologist who revolution- ized contemporary life with his development of the
polymerase chain reaction, the biochemical trick that enables almost anyone with
the appropriate laboratory to amplify tiny traces of DNA into quantities that can be
sequenced ...

successful scientist without toeing anybody's corporate line. ray, sequenced or
