About this item

Pulitzer Prize winner Siddhartha Mukherjee has written a biography of the gene as deft, brilliant, and illuminating as his biography of cancer, The Emperor of All Maladies. Mukherjee interweaves science. Social history, and the story of his own family to explain the science of genetics and to confront the extraordinary influence of heredity on our lives, personalities, identities, fates, and choices.

In superb prose, and with an instinct for the dramatic scene, Mukherjee and Darwin, from Boveri and Morgan to Crick, Watson, and Franklin and all the way through the revolutionary twenty-first century innovators who are mapping the human genome. The Gene is also, crucially, a preparation for the moral complexity introduced by our ability to create or “write” a genome, and thus determine human fate. Riveting, majestic, revelatory, The Gene is a must0read for everyone concerned about the definition and future of humanity.

As The New Yorker said of The Emperor of All Maladies, “It’s hard to think of many books for a general audience that have rendered any area of modern science and technology with such intelligence, accessibility, and compassion. . . An extraordinary achievement.”
