Thanks goes to Netgalley and a wonderful author for a wonderfully told series of stories within the world of geneticsI was worried briefly by the insistence of bringing Aristotle s take on the genome or the recapitulation of many of the grandfathers of the science such as Mendel and Darwin but the way that these otherwise well known personages were brought alive to the page was of a story than a dry recounting Even so I wasn t prepared for what was soon to comeI became engrossed in the history of American Eugenics and even so in Germany s frightful improvements all of which painted the history of the science in uite a dark and ignorant lightFortunately for all of us Crick Watson and Ferdinand come out swinging and we can see this all as a heroic step forward even considering the fact that Ferdinand never got to see her work truly recognized From here on out we ve got truly wonderful tales of Beck and the birth of recombinant DNA scientists self policing the rise of multinational bio engineering firms AIDS gene therapies genome mapping and of course cloning and stem cell blocking and each and every one of these stories are bright and very readableAnd what s it s always informative and it s always interesting It even draws us in to the author s own deep and emotional familial history and his own drive to understandI ll make no bones about it I was movedI ve read than a handful of books on genetics in the past and while some were uite good and some were sometimes mesmerizingly boring I think this one has got to be the most readable grab you on the human level and most in depth survey of the entire field that I ve ever read So many disparate characteristics managed to encode the proteins of the narrative and no one could be happier than me to see such a healthy and shining phenotypical expression be borne from a popular book It s classy and smart Very smart In fact it s pretty much a must have if you re a science history buff bringing us up to the cutting edge present and want a few uestions for the future

summary The Gene An Intimate History The Gene An Intimate History summary ↠ 108 Siddhartha Mukherjee ä 8 free read F sexuality temperament choice and free will This is a story driven by human ingenuity and obsessive minds – from Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel to Francis Crick James Watson and Rosalind Franklin and the thousands of scientists still working to understand the code of codesThis is an epic moving history of a scientific idea coming to life by the author of The Emperor of All Maladies But woven through The Gene like a red line is also an intimate history – the story of Mukherjee’. Cannot begin to tell you what I learned from this fascinating study of The Gene but I gained great insight from the thorough research of Siddhartha Mukherjee I am destined for a second readlisten The audio narration by Dennis Boutsikaris made this compelling very well paced with a distinct and pleasant tonal uality Highly recommended
