Read in June, 2010

Olson puts together the story of how DNA and the human genome project has been used to trace the story of humans--where we apparently originated, how we all trace back to genetic Adam and Eve, why the number of our ancestors doesn't continue to double into infinity, why none of us is pure anything. It's a fascinating read and makes sense to the lay person.
