    A very interesting read!

    Mutants is a very interesting book. It covers a very wide range of genetic disorders. Each section is like a chronological run down of the history of a genetic disorder. It begins with the religious auguries and dogma surrounding the earliest occurances of a particular disorder, and by the end of a chapter, the reader has been informed of modern research and understanding of the disorder. The book touches on nerve cord formation, homeobox gene mutation, signal transduction, and other important topics in genetics. It is an intriguing book, some what like a series of Ripley's Believe It or Not episodes. I believe it entertains and educates. Do read if you are interested in conjoined twins, hirsutism, hermaphroditism, or other conditions. Not a study guide, but a very good book. Very well organized too.

    Buy a dictionary

    I adore this book, but being only 15 my vocabulary isn't great. By page 16 my mom was sick of me asking her questions so she bought me an electronic dictionary. The book and the amount of research is beautiful, and I've even noticed some subtle humor in the text. i recommend this book to anyone who likes science, or is just bored.

    WONDERFUL

    I was thrilled at the amount of research this author did and the knowledge. I could hardly put this book down yet i loved it so much I didn't want to read it too fast and be finished with it. I wrote the author and let him know how wonderful his book was and ask if there were others. he recommended Joan Roughgardens book Evolutions Rainbow. If you loved Mutant you will be amazed at Evolutions Rainbow. Joan has another one coming out soon, can hardly wait. Would also like to see more by the author of this book Mutant.

    Entertaining and informative read.

    Not only a interesting journey through the varieties of genetic and developmental difference, but also an examination of the causes and consequences of these differences.

    Awesomely entertaining!

    This book details just about anything and EVERYTHING there is to know about genetic mutations. A real eye-opener, and a great book to learn random facts in!
