Summary
"Conventional wisdom dictates that our genetic destiny is fixed at conception. But Dr. Moalem's ... book shows us that the human genome is far more fluid and fascinating than your ninth grade biology teacher ever imagined. By bringing us to the bedside of his unique and complex patients, he ... demonstrates what rare genetic conditions can teach us all about our own health and well-being"--From publisher description
