Reviews

"For an up-to-the-minute account of one of the most dramatic periods in present-day science, Cracking the Genome is an essential read."

"A superb job... A tantalizing glimpse of the ethical perils and technological possibilities awaiting humanity."

"A rollicking good tale about an enduring intellectual monument."

"The race is over, and Davies was there, all along, providing the running commentary—and there, too, at the finish line. In Cracking the Genome, he hands out the prizes."

"Davies has tracked one of the most important stories ever to unfold. Davies helps readers understand how the deciphering of our genetic code will revolutionize our lives while posing serious ethical dilemmas."

"An impressive job of contextualizing the science within a political, economic, and social framework, creating a lively tale as accessible to non—specialists as it is to scientists."

"Investors and others looking for a quick primer on the science and business of biotechnology will find this a useful guide."

"In Davies' prose, this story of molecular biology and the Human Genome Project is as compelling as any Arthurian legend. In a fast-moving approachable style, Davies captures the uncovering of biology's Holy Grail, relying on his own expertise in genetics and interviews with key players such as Collins and Venter."
