The Gene: An Intimate History
Dave Peticolas's review
Jan 22, 2017
Really excellent history of the science and medicine and social impact of genetics and heredity. As a practicing oncologist (a discipline being revolutionized by recent advances in the genetics of cancer) Mukherjee brings a novel perspective to this subject. He also does not avoid the darker aspects of the field including our shameful history of eugenics.
