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.
