Oh dear, what a let down,
This review is from: Face of Britain: How Our Genes Reveal the History of Britain (Hardcover)
Sorry people, but I felt this book was a waste of money. If you want to read it, borrow it from a library. I was so disappointed that a lot of the content was just repeated info of which everyone with any lay interest in the subject would have been well acquainted.
It lacked professionalism, there were lots of repeated bits of info, other areas seemed to have been added as padding and there were, as another reviewer has commented, some real howlers of mistakes. Oh dear!
In my opinion, poorly written, the images (which I had expected in far greater number and detail) were pretty useless as they morphed faces from one area to another. -There were no definitive descriptions of what sort of features we could discern as indications of OUR families' origins (and lets be frank, thats why most of us would want to read this book).
Sorry, I wouldnt bother.
