This book is a surprisingly easy read for a book on genetics and I think pitched ideally at med students. It starts with an excellent and easily digestible introduction into DNA, mitosis, protein synthesis and then meiosis and oogenesis. Then onwards the book takes you through a very clinically orientated tour of medical genetics - including everything from metabolic disorders, to immunogenetics and to cancer. It's very well illustrated and key learning points are well highlighted. The best features are clinical commentaries which complement the text and highlight important genetic conditions as well as genetic issues such as diagnostic decisions and screening. At the end of each chapter there are questions (with answers) to assess what you learned. In summary, an excellent clinical text - which is useful not only during a specific genetic module but is clinically useful enough to be a reference in future PBL cases or clinical encounters where there is a genetic aspect/overlap.
