Editorial Reviews

Were you born to rage? Is the need for anger management in your genes? Many, like ex-punk rocker Henry Rollins, have struggled with feelings of aggression their entire lives, and National Geographic is on a mission to figure out why. Scientists are investigating a single gene-dubbed the warrior gene-that has been associated with violent behavior, raising the disturbing possibility that some people are Born to Rage. Henry tests this theory on a colorful crew: outlaw bikers, mixed martial arts fighters, Buddhist monks and former gang members. DNA testing reveals which of them-including possibly Henry Rollins himself-carries the warrior gene. The results provide an extraordinary insight into human behavior.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

As a high school science teacher I am always looking for videos that will teach something meaningful (beyond what the Standards require) and will also keep a load of post-pubescent juveniles' attention. I have never seen a science video work so well. The kids eyes were nearly superglued to the screen! It was necessary to discuss what they had seen, but they did a nice job of demonstrating how the genes we carry are influences, not iron-set rules written into our fate. It only requires a little bit of 2 + 2 work to make the connections between what this video is saying about who we are and broader issues in our society. For teaching teens, it is excellent. For adults who know nothing about genetics beyond what they forgot in high school, the video is not a review of those boring details that slip off the brain so easily. It focuses on the relevance of genetics, on how genes influence who we are and how we think - but don't assume it is going to tell you that your genes do everything. The ending will surprise you.
