5.0 out of 5 stars Actually Enjoyable to Read October 17, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was required for our med school PBL courses, and I can certainly understand why. The text is nicely written, and the "Clinical Commentary" sections are great for understanding how we as physicians come into the picture. A subject like genetics can become very formidable if not presented correctly, but (thankfully) this book got it right.

This genetics book is by far one of the easiest reads I've had for this class. The material is broken down into topics that correlate to diseases for further understanding. Anyone looking for a good genetics book will truly love this one!

Excellent, readable case-based coverage of genetics and genetic disease helps integrate both knowledge of genetics as well as clinical aspects. Required reading by my medical school. There do appear to be a few errors, but I couldn't find a comparable text.
