    I ended up dropping out of the class that had this as reuired reading due to overloading myself and I still read and loved this book It's discussions of the legal and moral issues around modern genetics are absolutely fascinating

    This was a highly fascinating and intriguing work It really helped make the connection between history genetics and the impact of these new technologies on our daily lives The book included some technical terms but was easy to understand for any layman I do believe that another edition is reuired at this point since much of the information in this book especially related to personal genomics is becoming outdated But most of it still holds true and I enjoyed all of the new scientific ideas that this book presented to me This is a good read even for non science oriented folks My favorite chapters included the ones on cats and dogs as well as GMO foods I also enjoyed reading about personal genomics as I myself am a customer of 23andMe a premiere personal genomics company and found it interesting to see the services evaluated from a scientific perspective But as I said much of the information related to those services is now outdated so this book needs another updated edition

    I had to read this book for a genetics class but I found myself looking forward to reading the different stories Each chapter is a look at an extraordinary happening or illness and an explanation of how genetics influenced the story A great book for anyone who is interested in genetics but not looking for a super heavy read

    This is a great book for the lay person about genetics Each chapter is focuses on a new story genetic disorder and is written in a way that even someone without a science background can understand and will find interesting I teach several non biology majors courses and when I teach my course on genetics I assign this text as the students textbook I think it goes over rather well
