Review: The Gene: An Intimate History

The Gene: An Intimate History
The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A remarkable accomplishment on the history of genetics. Siddhartha cuts the density with skilled use of examples and effective storytelling. My favorite part? The human side: I loved the fact that the author exposed the thread of debilitating mental illness in his own family lineage as the backdrop to his genetic curiosity. A brilliant and courageous man.
