Publisher's Summary

Popular scientist Matt Ridley is renowned as much for accessibility as for learning. Following the success of The Red Queen and The Origins of Virtue, Genome is a Sunday Times top 10 best seller and a Guardian Book of the Year.

Genome unravels the secrets of human nature without the usual reams of technical jargon. It shows outstanding breakthroughs in gene research, how we've gone from knowing almost nothing to knowing almost everything, and how our genes reveal more about our past, our evolution, and even our minds. Every important event in human history is written into our genes, whether it happened four billion or a few hundred years ago. All you need to know is where to look.
