Makes a connection between behavior and the genes
This a very great book, it shows possible connections and the interactions between human behavior and the human genes. It breaks down all the myths about the importance of the genes in a way that it emphasizes the importance of genes but also the importance of behavioral choice. The book is written on a level that also interested non-scientists are easily able to understand it.

Alright... The book took me a while to get through, only because I didn't have much time to sit down and read it. Once I finished it though, I thought it was great. Copeland explores different aspects of our lives (i.e. Anger, Weight, Homosexuality, and so on) in terms of environment AND genetics. I thought that was certainly helpful and unbiased. There are many examples of prior research experiments and actual people that help to illustrate what Copeland is trying to say. If you are interested in human behavior and like genetics... READ THIS BOOK!! Good for the lay man.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Im only a high school student and it was interesting enough for me. I'm not completely through with the book but its content is interesting. I had no idea that some people are just the way they are because of their genes and not their upbringings. I would recommend reading this book if your interested in genes and science.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Who says paternal miochondrial does not count?
Recent scientific findings in paternally inherited miochondriac research challenges the validity of some of the case study, statistical analysis, and lay work of the most important content in this book. A few years ago, I questioned the validity of some of its content but could not prove otherwise. I attributed some of these discrepancies to perhaps individual environmental, social, and peer pressure conditions. After all these - I still hold DR. Hamer as one of the most charismatic and engaging speakers I have had the oportunity to hear. I have rated this book as recomended in the past but based on this current findings, I have change my rating to 'dissapointing'. Two stars * one for mom and * one for dad.Was this review helpful?
