Exploding the Gene Myth

The previous two entries were quotes from a chat I had today with Frank Aqueno, who also (not entirely coincidentally) happens to have once interviewed the primary author of the wonderful amazing book I just finished reading today, which I read on Frank's recommendation (hence the "not entirely coincidentally") and which absolutely everyone who's ever felt the slightest urge to form any thought with the words "genetic" or "DNA" or "inherited" in it should be required to read before completing the thought. I guarantee that this book will change how you think about genetics, no matter what your previous thoughts on the subject had been. The book is called Exploding the Gene Myth: How Genetic Information is Produced and Manipulated by Scientists, Physicians, Employers, Insurance Companies, Educators and Law Enforcers by Ruth Hubbard and Elijah Wald.

Read it.

And while you're at it, read Frank's interview.
