Format: Hardcover
Dr Lambs excentric but endearing character come through wonderfully in this great book. Without doubt, the finest review and summary of applied genetic techniques and applications. Strongly recomended for purchase.

Format: Hardcover
This book is evidently a work of love and it's significance as a contemporary text is perhaps not yet recognised.
Dr Lamb provides a broad exposition of applied genetics which is commendable although the presentation and nature of writing is a let down. Having said this, the care that has gone into the work is evident; not a single spelling or punctuation error and a well chosen, interesting and useful array of original colour plates complement the thoroughness of his work.
