List suits art of

ucational theorizing, biography,
history, and the rest. But two,
books that fit into none of these
classes deserve top billing.
First is James Watson's highly
publicized, slightly scandalized re-
collection of the discovery of DNA,;
The Double Helix (Atheneum,
$5.95). Though most reviewers
have given it partial censure for
its lack of grace and style, nothing
could be more irrelevant here:
The Double Helix-gossipy, giggly,
and shameless-is science with its{
pants pulled down. It's nice (and,4
in Watson's telling, very exciting)
to learn that Nobel winners are as
ladder-climbing as the J. Pierre-
pont Finches of big business.
The other "best surprise" of
non-fiction in 1968 earns its rec-
ognition mostly for being the best
of the crop of books on its sub-
ject. The work is The Beatles
Book (Cowles, $5.95), and it is a
collection of widely-ranging, all-
inclusive essays edited by Edward
E. Davis on the same topic that
has spawned a flock of p.r. bio-
graphies and shallow profiles.
William Buckley, Timothy Leary,
music critic Ned Rorem are in-
cluded in the roster of writers,

ups. The other articles are good,
too, and their shared glory is the
recent swing to personal journa-
lism that has turned writers into
people, too.
That about wraps it up. There
are countless other books that
