Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Y: The Descent of Men (Paperback)
Professor Steve Jones is Professor of Genetics at University College, London. He has the happy facility of translating some quite complex science into ideas that the layman can understand, even, if you have to read the science part again. The result is that you can end up understanding why we are and what we are and how some of it works. He also surprises the reader with the occasional quirkiness of his similes. I now understand why my sons and grandsons are what they are. Also, you must choose very carefully with whom you decide to breed; and certainly never with your first cousin! All very challenging and interesting, as well as worth reading.
