Read in July, 2011

This book is encyclopedic: it is a refresher course in genetics, evolution and developmental psychology. Still I am reading it for the big ideas. And I think I am getting some new ones about the passe' notion of nature or nurture. The regulation of genes is far more dependent upon environment at each stage of life than I had previously understood.
