THE GENE An Intimate History

by | Read by Dennis Boutsikaris

Contemporary Culture • 19.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Listeners will enjoy an in-depth listen about genetics and the experimental breakthroughs that took place in the field throughout history. As cancer physician and Pulitzer Prize winner (THE EMPEROR OF ALL MALADIES) Siddhartha Mukherjee explains why all these stories are both fascinating and valuable, he illuminates how genes influence the world. Narrator Dennis Boutsikaris captures the passion that fueled the extensive research involved and makes Mukherjee's sharing of his family’s medical history more personable and important. With a reflective tone that is never pretentious or dull, a thorough profile of the gene is formally presented. Recent advancements in gene research, the ethics involved, and the manipulations the future may hold are also intelligibly and skillfully discussed.
