Genome: The Autobiography of a Species in 23 Chapters

Matt Ridley
Harper Collins
Publication date: 


ISBN 0-06-019497-9
Read this book immediately. This is a popular book written for a popular audience, but unless human genetics or genomics is your specialty, you will probably learn something in every chapter. The writing style is straight forward and engaging, and should be accessible to anyone. The author weaves a whole biology course into a discussion of chromosomes. Jim likes to give this book as a gift.
