Format: Paperback
I have a 11 year old son, who is curious about everything. He's especially interested in "scientific" explanations of how his world works. Well this book was perfect for him! I gave him a copy of the book and he managed read the book in just a few days.

Genetics can be a very difficult subject to grasp and can be easily overlooked because of its complexity. There is so much kids can learn about how they and their world works through genetics and that's truly the major strength and focus of this book. The authors, who are real scientists, tackle difficult questions from the general public and distill their answers in to easy-to-understand explanations of different genetic phenomena such as why some people have different color of eyes, like the singer David Bowie, or how a family with all brown eyes can have child with blue eyes.

This is a great book to take a long on a trip since each question and answer can be read in 5 or 10 minutes. I am sure you'll find atleast one question you've always wanted to know the answer too!

Enjoy.

I am a 7th grade teacher and this book has been a fun educational resource for my students. We just completed a semester long unit on genetics and heredity and this book was a perfect supplement to this unit. I had it out in the room for students to read on their own time which they enjoyed but I also created an assignment to present about a topic answered in the book.
The text brings up high level academic vocabulary and current research about genetics but it presents it in an interesting way for middle schoolers. With questions like "Does poop have DNA?", it's hard for any elementary, middle, or high school student to not be interested. I would recommend this book to any teacher that wants an additional fun way to explore genetics.

The authors tried to accommodate novices as well as informed laymen. They struck a fairly good balance, but I would have appreciated a somewhat more in-depth scientific approach. In addition, there was a good bit of repetition, especially with regard to chimeras, mosaics, and eye color. Nevertheless, there were a few surprising nuggets that I found intriguing. Overall, I liked the book but was expecting more.
