Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Gene: An Intimate History reads like both a textbook and an epic adventure tale. Siddhartha Mukherjee takes a serious scientific topic; captures history, terminology, facts, and figures; and presents it in an approachable way. I find myself unable to put the book down because I want to know what comes next. Given all we read in the news these days about genetic research, this book is important for us all to read and understand.
