    One thought on “Introducing Genetics”

    1. Sort of like a streamlined textbook, with lots of comical illustrations and a basic text. I was expecting the graphics to be more related to the material, and instead they're mostly just illustrations (pictures of the scientists involved, people making puns based on the content, etc.). Still, it's a good intro or review.

    2. This is a good introduction to the subject, and takes care to highlight dangerous ideological distortions of the past like racism and eugenics. To be sure, this is the most political field of scientific inquiry. Besides nephology, of course.

    3. These graphic guides are awful; dreadful explanations and poorly illustrated with dire attempts at humour that irritate rather than illuminate. In trying to be cool they are instead threadbare, disjointed, messy and come across as cheap and thrown together. Don't waste your time.

    4. Cool book! Very informative, sometimes a bit complicated even it being graphic. Still I really liked reading it!

    5. «La humanidad lleva en su interior la semilla de su destrucción.»No es un libro que aporte mucho sobre genética: se trata de una revisión superficial de los principales acontecimientos de su historia; no entra en los aspectos técnicos del asunto. Además, la mayoría de las páginas están acompañadas de un ¿humor facilón? (por llamarlo de alguna forma -lo que menos causa es gracia-) y cae en estereotipos y tópicos: «Rosalind Franklin no descubrió la estructura final del ADN. A fin d [...]

    6. I had to use the 100 page rule with this book. I thought the illustrations would be helpful for me to understand the concept, the science behind genetics. Some of them were just silly but I guess that's okay for the entertainment factor. Although the authors made efforts to provide a history, a progression of discoveries leading up to modern day knowledge, (up to 1993) I found it confusing. I think I'd rather just have a current publication stating what is known and proven now, and illustrated w [...]

    7. Picked this book to represent a summer school course entitled "Genetics" I took at CU. About as confounding as the Logic course I took at Metro State. The only test I ever flunked in college was the mid-term. I think most everybody did. Got an A on the final but only a C for the course. One of only two I got between Metro St. and CU. Date is approximate.

    8. I really enjoyed the clever and tongue in cheek graphics that accompanied the text passages! Lots of fun references, and the surreal art style is right down my alley. The guide is easy to understand, and overall the book is a good and basic introduction to an otherwise complex topic.

    9. hmmmm. pretty technical for beginners. also kind of mute on the ethical issues--saved for the last couple of pages. also, disturbed at the use of animals for genetics ends. otherwise, a nice intro to genetics and a good flow. otherwise, meh.

    10. Genetics is the newest of all sciences - nothing useful was known about inheritance until just over a century ago. Now genetics is exploding, and before long we will have the complete code, written in three thousand million letters of DNA, of what makes a human being

    11. It will probably take a third reading but I am determined to understand this stuff! Where are my ASC science major friends when I need them?

    12. I bought and read this book in Ireland! I wanted it because I was taking Genetics as a summer course at Pitt when I returned to the US. Time flies.
