“The Gene: An Intimate History” is written by Siddhartha Mukherjee. I have been through an audio version of this book. It was as good as his book on the topic of cancer (review here), in this his personal life experience is a bit less. He discusses on the topic of human genome project, how gene sequencing has helped in identifying genes responsible for genetic diseases, somethings related to eugenics, stems cells and the future of gene technology where genes could be used to alter the make up of human species itself.
Rating: 4/5. I have thoroughly enjoyed this very informative book in the field of gene technology and its advancement. All topics are treated equally deep.
