  In this well-researched and thought provoking book, Taylor presents more than just another critique of the current assumptions and methodology for the distracting and divisive studies of nature versus nurture.  Through an engaging roadmap outlining the field's unanswered questions, the reader is invited to consider how to recognize and measure the interplay of genetics and environments and to pay attention to the underlying factors that also act as components of variations.  His conceptual framework provides a foundation for deeper inquiry and analyzes the implications of our current thinking gaps.  He also offers alternative qualitative and quantitative approaches to evolve this field in order to lead to new discoveries and connections.  While many books point to the need to let go of establishing dominance of preferred factors over others, Taylor's groundbreaking book gives possible directions and viable solutions for the responses and social contexts of our presently unproductive nature-nurture explanations.
