Sykes relates the story of the scientific controversy and how the genetic proof finally prevailed against entrenched opinion.
The Seven Daughters of Eve is the story of Bryan Sykes' study of mitochondrial DNA and its implications for our sense of ourselves and our place in the world.
The writing is scientific but very well written for the layman -- in other words, it was easy to understand while being interesting and captivating.
The book is just a little dated in this fast moving field of human genomics. Otherwise it is a very good read and very informative.Published 2 days ago by Quailgray
