The Gene Summary : The #1 NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book A Washington Post and Seattle Times Best Book of the Year From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies—a fascinating history of the gene and “a magisterial account of how human minds have laboriously, ingeniously picked apart what makes us tick” (Elle). “Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee dazzled readers with his Pulitzer Prize-winning The Emperor of All Maladies in 2010. That achievement was evidently just a warm-up for his virtuoso performance in The Gene: An Intimate History, in which he braids science, history, and memoir into an epic with all the range and biblical thunder of Paradise Lost” (The New York Times). In this biography Mukherjee brings to life the quest to understand human heredity and its surprising influence on our lives, personalities, identities, fates, and choices. “Mukherjee expresses abstract intellectual ideas through emotional stories…[and] swaddles his medical rigor with rhapsodic tenderness, surprising vulnerability, and occasional flashes of pure poetry” (The Washington Post). Throughout, the story of Mukherjee’s own family—with its tragic and bewildering history of mental illness—reminds us of the questions that hang over our ability to translate the science of genetics from the laboratory to the real world. In riveting and dramatic prose, he describes the centuries of research and experimentation—from Aristotle and Pythagoras to Mendel and Darwin, from Boveri and Morgan to Crick, Watson and Franklin, all the way through the revolutionary twenty-first century innovators who mapped the human genome. “A fascinating and often sobering history of how humans came to understand the roles of genes in making us who we are—and what our manipulation of those genes might mean for our future” (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel), The Gene is the revelatory and magisterial history of a scientific idea coming to life, the most crucial science of our time, intimately explained by a master. “The Gene is a book we all should read” (USA TODAY).

The Gene the Clinic and the Family Summary : While some theorists argue that medicine is caught in a relentless process of ‘geneticization’ and others offer a thesis of biomedicalization, there is still little research that explores how these effects are accomplished in practice. Joanna Latimer, whose groundbreaking ethnography on acute medicine gave us the social science classic The Conduct of Care, moves her focus from the bedside to the clinic in this in-depth study of genetic medicine. Against current thinking that proselytises the rise of laboratory science, Professor Latimer shows how the genetic clinic is at the heart of the revolution in the new genetics. Tracing how work on the abnormal in an embryonic genetic science, dysmorphology, is changing our thinking about the normal, The Gene, the Clinic, and the Family charts new understandings about family, procreation and choice. Far from medicine experiencing the much-proclaimed ‘death of the clinic’, this book shows how medicine is both reasserting its status as a science and revitalising its dominance over society, not only for now but for societies in the future. This book will appeal to students, scholars and professionals interested in medical sociology, science and technology studies, the anthropology of science, medical science and genetics, as well as genetic counselling.

The Tomorrow Gene Summary : What if you could have the one thing that changes everything? Book 1: The Tomorrow Gene Ephraim Todd has landed in paradise: Eden, the largest artificial archipelago in the world, home to The Evermore Corporation, a company that’s created the Fountain of Youth, if rumors are to be believed. Eden offers the ridiculously rich and super-famous genetic enhancements and modifications that the rest of the world can only dream about. But Ephraim is on Eden for another reason. He’s obsessed with finding his brother who disappeared more than a decade ago. He’s sure he’s on this island, which is why he’s been trying to get to there for years. But Eden doesn’t surrender its secrets easily, and when Ephraim stumbles upon a disturbing truth, all of his evidence mysteriously disappears. He knows they’re onto him, but is suddenly unable to trust his own mind. Ephraim is left wondering if the world around him is falling apart, or if it’s just him. Ephraim believes that he’s on a quest to find his brother, but in truth, he’s on a journey to discover himself. And what he finds will turn his entire life into a lie. Book 2: The Eden Experiment Eden has burned. Every island in the archipelago has gone up in flames, and thousands are dead. Also dead? The dreams of eternal life for hopefuls around the globe.And one man is the target of their ire. After finding his brother, Ephraim Todd got more than he bargained for. Now he’s fighting for his freedom, along with his sanity—desperate to prove his innocence and show everyone he isn’t crazy. But when no one will back up his story—and the evidence that will prove his innocence has disappeared—Ephraim is forced to take matters into his own hands and find the one thing that can prove his innocence, despite the insurmountable odds against him. Can he find the answers before his mind finally cracks and crumbles to nothing? Book 3: The Tomorrow Clone The world is up in arms after a brutal murder is captured on video and broadcast around the globe. The man responsible, Ephraim Todd — who previously burned the island of Eden to ashes — is alone and incarcerated, trapped in a world where no one believes his story. Yes, he killed Neven Connolly, but it was in self-defense. Unknown to Ephraim, Neven is alive and well. His death was all part of the plan, and Ephraim played his part so perfectly well. Now all Neven needs is for Ephraim to stay in jail and out of the way. But Ephraim escapes with the help of one of the world’s most powerful and beloved people—a man who may be to blame for the end of the world as we know it. Will Ephraim stop Neven before it’s too late, or is the end of humanity one Tomorrow Clone away?

Master Control Genes in Development and Evolution Summary : In this fascinating book, one of the world's most eminent developmental biologists discusses some of the exciting new insights into how genes control development. Walter Gehring describes in vivid detail his essential contributions to the landmark discovery of the homeobox, a characteristic DNA segment found in the genes of all higher organisms from the fruitfly to humans, and he explains how this has provided the key to our modern understanding of development and evolution. The book thus becomes not only a lucid discussion of genetics but also an engaging description of the art of scientific investigation. Gehring begins his story by looking at the work of the many researchers who laid the foundation for the fields of molecular, cellular, and developmental biology, providing insightful vignettes of past and present investigators. He then describes his laboratory's hunt for the gene that caused odd mutations in the fruitfly--in which, for example, antennae on the head were transformed into legs. He explains that researchers eventually found that the same master control genes that dictate the body plan in flies also pattern human bodies, limbs, hands, heart, and brain. And he illustrates the universality of the genetic control of development by describing the development of the eye; eyes as different as those of humans, squids, and flies, he shows, develop under the same master control gene.
