From the color of your eyes to the length of your hair, "What's in Your Genes?" will help you to fast and easily decode your DNA. I have bought this book for my family and my friends. I keep my copy nearby and have had a blast learning why I'm a lefty and why those 4 little letters in my DNA make me who I am.
I'll be featuring this book and Katie McKissick on my FB Fans of Anne Bruce page this weekend. The fun doesn't stop in the last chapter, "The Future of Genetics." Trust me, this author is a super great example of how being a scientist, a fabulous author, an innovator, and creative biologist, cartoonist and more, is just what the world needs right now!!!!!
I'm a high school biology teacher and i have recommended this brilliant book to all my students who have trouble understanding the concepts of DNA, inheritance and genetics.
