Editorial Reviews

Journal of Marital and Family Therapy
“Truly groundbreaking in its contribution both to the field of genetics and genomics, and also to family therapy.”
American Journal of Psychiatry
“This book serves up just about exactly what we need in order to deal with the flood of genetic information pouring over the transom. More than anything else it gives clinicians, educators, and researchers a way to think about genetic information as it applies to people's lives and patients' health. It succeeds beyond expectations. . . . [A] tour de force. I believe there is no better source of orientation, information, and good judgment about clinical genomics and genetics than is found between these covers.”
