'A book that would have had Darwin swooning - anyone seriously interested in who we are and how we function should read this book.' -- Guardian '[A] splendidly clear explanation' -- Colin Berry The Oldie 'Fascinating stuff.' -- Bookseller 'Nessa Carey takes us on a lively and up-to-date tour of what's known about epigenetic mechanisms and their implications for ageing and cancer.' -- BBC Focus 'A hugely compelling explanation of the very latest from the frontline of modern biology ... The Epigenetics Revolution traces the thrilling path this discipline has taken over the last twenty years.' -- Waterstones 'This is a readable book that applies scientific theory to the everyday world.' -- Bookseller 'Her book combines an easy style with a textbook's thoroughness.' -- Nature 'Sees DNA as a film script, with plenty of room for interpretation and retakes. Carey's experience of the biotechnology industry shows in her concluding remarks on the pros and cons of our growing understanding of epigenetics for drug discovery, and on understanding the impact of diet and environment on disease.' -- Nature 'An exhilarating exploration of an exciting new field, and a good gift for a bright biology student looking for a career choice.' -- Kirkus Review
