Repeating for this book:
This is an excellent book on genetics.
It is a book that has explained many things in biology that I, being in Physics and Math, didn't really understand before.
It also reads like a novel.
Another book that complements this one is: The Gene, An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee, 2016
Both books are quite long, but the length is necessary to cover all the topics.
I have read both books more than once - it seems each time I read them there are many things that I have missed in the first reading. Will have to read them carefully a third time.

The general public has no idea the interesting developments that have happened in this field that is so personal.

Also, definitely a 5 star.
