This book describes the complete history of genetics, from Darwin and Mendel to DNA to modern gene therapy and the Human Genome Project. The book is 500 pages, which is way too long in my opinion. Most of the stuff I already kind of knew from high school biology, the book goes a lot deeper into the history and context of discoveries, but not that much into technical details. The writing is also really dry, and by the middle I was skimming through the chapters and waiting for the book to end. I learned some stuff from it, but wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
