Media reviews
[Avise's] account of the role genes play in shaping the human condition is wholly involving...In addition to presenting ample biological information in a form accessible to the non-specialist, Avise does a superb job of discussing many of the ethical implications that have arisen from our growing knowledge of human genetics. Just a few of the topics covered are genetic engineering, the patenting of life, genetic screening, abortion, human cloning, gene therapy and insurance-related controversies. - Publishers Weekly"
