In "The Myth of Race", Dr. Spelsberg puts his vast knowledge of biology, genetics, and history into lay terms which are easy for the book's readers to understand. This book is indeed Spelsberg's personal masterpiece, a culmination of research and findings regarding both science and human history - who we are, why we are who we are, and how we got that way. Excellent and well-executed in presentation and form, "The Myth of Race" is a must-read!

The author merely states the obvious in an easy to read, breezy style. Never professorial he lays out eveything in everyman terms with all the genetic ducks in a row. You can knock the book off in no time and will come out on the other side more informed and headed down the right path of the "race" conversation. The author pins "race' down for what it is..a social invention that has no biological basis in fact!
