About this book
This title looks at how minor life events and the choices we make, as well as those made by our ancestors, fuse with our inherited genes to mould us into individuals. What makes you so different to your siblings? Why do you vote a certain way, remain faithful for twenty years, believe in God, or get cancer or depression?
Looks at the latest genetic research to reveal that, far from being the unchangeable building blocks of life, our genes can change shape and evolve. 'A fascinating and provocative book' "New Scientist"
