Product Details


Plomin is a psychologist and geneticist, and he makes a persuasive case for the primacy of genes over environment in shaping our individual personalities. Genetics is a discipline that has been saying as much for a long time now, but Plomin really emphasises just how great the genetic influence is even in areas we’d hitherto assumed were almost entirely environmental. You don’t have to agree with him, but you can’t read the book without seeing the world afresh.

The Guardian

As Plomin himself concludes, genetics is much too important to leave to geneticists.

Psychology Today

Plomin’s Blueprint has the makings of a modern classic as one of the most direct and unapologetic takes on the topic ever written.
