I usually want to be advised of the background of authors and would have preferred some explanation of their background and basis for expertise.
These differences are expanded by different mutations (changes) in the Y chromosomes DNA that allow genealogists to verify the relatedness of persons with the same family name among males, and sometimes find "non-paternity events" such as adoptions and connections among lines with a different surname.
The book goes into detail that can be a bit too complicated for some people, but the information is there if one can study and be willing to read other books such as "The Seven Daughters of Eve" by Bryan Sykes (2001) or "Deep Ancestry" by Spencer Wells (2006).
The book does relay heavily on the "Genome Project" by National Geographic Society and supports one testing lab at the expense of other excellent gene testing projects.
