At first I thought this 'book' was just poorly edited - but, in fact, it seems not to have been edited at all. The actual amount of genetic information about the Scots would (possibly) fill a 1,000 word essay. The rest is padding. The story of Scots is submerged by extracts from numerous other books on 'Out of Africa', History of Europe, History of the Romans etc etc.. Several times whole chunks of other writers' work are lumped in with the intro: "This is worth quoting in full". There are frequent repetitions and too many typos. I would guess the compilers are aiming to cash in on Scots family research, visits to the 'homeland' and forthcoming independence debates. Would like to get my money back - but caveat emptor. It's gone to the jumble. Save your money.
