Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-10-Before Mendel's experiments with plants, there was only folk wisdom and the general acceptance that offspring-plant, animal, and human-resemble their parents. Even at the time of his death in 1884, Mendel's work was not widely known in the scientific community. This biography provides details of the scientist's life and his experiments as well as the political and social context of his times. Sidebars in some of the chapters are listed in the table of contents, making it easy to locate the discussion of such related topics as "Heredity before Mendel," "Mendel and Darwin," "Did Mendel Cheat?" and "The Human Genome Project." A two-page chronology tracks important events in his life and the vital contributions he made to the study of genetics. Black-and-white photographs, reproductions of artwork, and pages from the scientist's notebooks and manuscripts accompany the text.

Review


"A great biography... I would suggest it as a resource for anyone interested in science or Gregor Mendel."--The Bloomsbury Review


"An excellent choice for young adults... a remarkable book. In a nice straightforward style Edward Edelson is able to tell the reader about the science of Gregor Mendel.... It would be enjoyed by high school students.... Indeed it is a book that should be handed round a Biology department and discussed by the faculty. I rate it as excellent."--Appraisal

Cool intro to one of our great scientists. What a genius Mendel was.
Sure we always hear about Isaac Newton, Thomas Edison etc, but
Medel seems to be all but Ignored. This book gives a nice overview
of his life and work without being full of technical Jargon.
Its cheap too.

My review is really a two fold review. First, I wish to compliment the publishers of the series of books entitled, Oxfords Portraits in Science. This series brings to life some of the world's greatest scientists on a level easily understood for the everyday reader. One book in this series I am particularly impressed with is, Gregor Mendel: And the Roots of Genetics. For the past few years I have been publishing a series of science books in comic book form, The Adventures of Mr. Tompkins. When I was researching one of my Tompkins episodes, Mr. Tompkins meets Mendel, I discovered this series of books and I relied heavily on one of the books in the Oxford Book series, the Mendel Book. It was an invaluable resource.
