Amazing read! Riveting human stories that actually make sense of the future of medical testing. Plus an environmental angle.

I just got a copy of David Ewing Duncan's new book, and it's amazing. It
makes sense of some of the new science that I've been reading about --
genetics and brain scans and the like -- and explains it from the
perspective of a real person taking these tests. The environment parts of
the book are riveting -- and a bit frightening: that we are being exposed to
everything from mercury to pesticides, and that our genes might give us some
protection, or not, from these chemicals.
In the end, it's a great read, well written with very human stories. I
highly recommend this book if you want to see what the future holds for
