“Potter guides the reader through the experiments on genetics, gene regulation and transfer, and stem cells to show how a human could be cloned and genetic modifications added to the embryo. Historic and current research in all these areas is explained clearly… This is an excellent introduction to human genetics.” –Library Journal
“Potter makes clear that understanding what genetic research entails as well as the bioethics involved is necessary for participating in public discourse and politics. Therefore, Potter’s thorough approach is to be lauded, and recommended to readers curious about this important subject, and those more urgently seeking their own genetic answers.” – Booklist
