Thank you so much for allowing me to read this book early! In "The Genome Odyssey," Dr. Ashley brings to light so many fascinating topics and ideas in regards to the human genome and its changes over time. I loved how easy this book was to read, even though the subject is not just common knowledge. Dr. Ashley is a fantastic writer and this is made clear by this ease in explaining those difficult or confusing concepts while also making sure to put the reader and their understanding first.
This book is broken into four major parts, each of which focuses on a more specific area of his research and expertise. Along with this, this book is perfect for someone who may be experiencing sickness or disease because the author also tries to make sure to include disease in his explanations and really brings some understanding and reasonings to light.
