I can hardly put the book down

This book is a very simple read and it's a great book for anyone even if you do not have a background in genetics. Delivers a wealth of knowledge in what is going on now with genetic testing and observation. The author gives opinions on what the suspected future may hold, as in genetic testing for all newborns.
