About Siddhartha Mukherjee's The Gene:

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies, The Gene is a rigorously scientific, broadly historical, and candidly personal account of the development of the science of genetics, the dramatic ways genes can affect us, and the enormous moral questions posed by our ability to manipulate them.

As Siddhartha Mukherjee maps out the fascinating biography of the gene, from research and experimentation to scientific breakthroughs, he always returns to the narrative of his own family's tragic history of mental illness, reminding us that despite our huge leaps in knowledge, there is still much we do not understand about the incredibly complex human genome.

The Gene is an important read for anyone concerned about a future that may redefine what it means to be human.

The summary and analysis in this book are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
