A Rhythm in Notion
Small(er) Steps Toward a Much Better World

Venter's second book focuses more on the history and science of genomics and synthetic biology, as well as promises and perils. A little dryer than the autobiography, but a good read.

A quick overview of one of the most exciting stories of modern science. Venter's story has a lot to teach us about the hardball politics at the upper echelons of Big Science.
