Editorial Reviews


..."clear-headed, intricate and seductive arguments. Scientists and laypersons alike will find something within them to disagree with. But I'm equally sure that they'll be forced to reassess either some of their faith in, or fear of, genetic science."
-"Independent on Sunday
..." an excellent, readable and lively 'take' from the viewpoint of a moral philosopher ... I think Graham's book will greatly help to clarify the minds of many people who are confused by the media's approach, especially television, that often presents a kaleidoscope of different opinions."
-Dr. David Galton, author of "In Our Own Image
"Clear and level-headed . . . he has a lot of interesting and provocative things to say about both genetic science and genetic engineering. In particular, he has provided as clear and compelling an account of what is meant by "playing God," and what is wrong with playing God, as I have seen."
-Stephen Clark, University of Liverpool
"A provocative and always interesting addition to the literature on genetics."
-Arlene Judith Klotzko, Writer in Residence, Science Museum
