Read in January, 2010

I spent the last couple months wadding through a number of books intended as civil introductions to genetics and this is by far the best that I have found. The graphic elements really help to explain ideas that seem overly complex and impossibly abstract when described with words only. The book is efficient, quick to read, summary of the organizational structure of DNA and its related processes as well as explaining some of the human scientific history that lead to our current understanding.

I have managed, in the last decade, to forget completely all of my high school science. So perhaps some of the information presented in to basic - I cannot tell. For me that was not the case. I would recommend it as a good way to re-familiarize yourself with will probably be the dominate scientific field of the near future.
