I Learned Much From This Excellent Book,
This review is from: 50 Genetics Ideas You Really Need to Know (50 Ideas You Really Need to Know series) (Hardcover)
Fifty topics on genetics are discussed in this excellent, highly readable work. Entries are grouped by them - molecular genetics, nature and nurture, the genome, some ethical stuff etc. - and each of the topics is set out on exactly four pages. You could skip sections here and there if you wanted to, and I doubt you'd have difficulty with later material. There's a glossary of jargon at the end if you do miss something.
The volume is presented in an attractive hardback cover with a nice picture of Dolly on the front.
My only possible reservation is that 50 Genetics Ideas... (part of a series?) was published in 2008, so may not be fully up-to-date in what is a very fast moving field.
