This is an amazingly good book that really catches you off guard. It discusses the science of genetics and the politics behind why this information isn't better understood by the general public or even by many professionals. It's interesting and thought provoking, the kind of book you find yourself talking about after you read a chapter. It hits on "hot button" topics like parenting and feminism. The writing style is engaging and witty. It is however a long book and the first section is a little rough to get through. But it's well worth sticking with as it gets more and more interesting the more you read.
