    It took a little while to get into this book What I thought would be the most interesting mutations like conjoined twins were actually the least which is perhaps why the author chose to put that chapter first Honestly the most compelling studies were of things that are not as obvious mutations like size skin color or aging The scientific jargon can get a little intense at times but it eases up as the book conti

Arwin one of his keenest insights into heredity This elegant humane and engaging book captures what we know of the development of what makes us human NatureVisit Armand Marie Leroi on the web http armandleroicomindexhtmlStepping effortlessly from myth to cutting edge science. Okay this ended up being a long review Judging by the title I was afraid the contents were going to be wildly insensitive and was glad to find that wasn t the case Throughout the book Leroi points out the absurdity in how humans throughout history have felt the need and right to categorize and label one another based on superficial appearance This book is filled with historical perspective that is interesting to read about Especially the section about Mengele and the horrors his test subjects had to endure in Auschwitz simply due genetic mutations that manifest themselves as something outwardly visible as opposed to the plethora of scientifically eually interesting genetic mutations that affect the inside of the body or in fact nothing at all However I found the book to be somewhat monotonous It often not always but often enough to get repetitive follows a set pattern for each genetic variation 1 Set the scene historically repeatedly with a somewhat lengthy description of name dropped white men going into uncivilized territory to find this new human species they think they ve discovered and subseuently paying to purchase one of these individuals often children and take home to study in the safety and comfort of Europe2 Discuss the discrimination superstition and exoticism people with this particular variation have had to endure3 Further give historical perspective on several incorrect theories proposed as the cause 4 Finally reveal the biology behind the mutation followed by philosophical musings or ramblings and onto the next one Which in itself is pretty interesting But being a one book at a time kind of gal I recognize that this book may not have been for stretch reading and would have been excited to read about yet another mutation if I hadn t just done so many many times previously without catching a break with another book The author overall does an exceptional job of showing respect towards the individuals carrying genetic mutations Only a few times I found myself bristling at well lack of social awareness and historical perspective really Which is uite impressive for a book so saturated with both I also found it slightly irritating that Leroi kept dropping words in other languages without translating leaving whole sentences lost on me The writing style was pretty pretentious at times I don t know perhaps I m just miffed that I don t know any French
