it was amazing

I decided to read Genome because i may possibly want to pursue a career in the biological field!. I have learned the basics of the human genome, but this book goes even deeper. For instance, I had already know abotu the Human Genome Project, but I had yet to understand what they had found about each chromosome. Matt Ridley cleverly organizes this book into 23 chapters because there are 23 pairs of chromosomes in each human cell. Normally, one would feel intimidated by the possible scientific jargon in a scientific analysis. However, Ridley writes in a very entertaining way that any reader, even he or she who has no interest in science, will be interested in learning about the every genome that make sup our bodies.
