-Lots of pictures/diagrams
-Lots of personal stores, examples, etc.
All these factors make this book pretty easy to get through. However, the quality of writing and thought organization is terrible:
-Jumps from idea to idea
-Gives examples of a disorder, but doesn't mention what that disorder is
-LOTS of sentence structure issues, including sentences that just don't make sense; Ex: "The second major type of DNA microarray experiment, a DNA sequence variation analysis, screen mutations, SNPs, and the wild type sequence for a particular gene." (This is not a sentence! Is there a word missing or something?)
-Wordiness galore: "In a Darwinian sense, an unattractive and out-of-shape parent of ten is more "fit" than a gorgeous triathlete with one child." (What does being unattractive or gorgeous have to do with it?)
There are a million more examples of the crappy writing.
Honestly, a lot of the sentences are worded awkwardly. This book should be rewritten, reorganized, and EDITED.
