“The breadth of this book; its abundance of enthralling accounts and astonishing science; its adept, vivid writing; and Kenneally’s exquisitely calibrated judgment make it the richest, freshest, most fun book on genetics in some time.” – David Dobbs, New York Times
Christine Kenneally is one of Embiggen Books’ favorite authors. Her book The First Word is the best selling book in our linguistics section and is a fantastic overview of the whole field and it’s most influential theorists. Her work is always a joy to read and is given a wonderful territory to explore with her great depth of research. She’ll be appearing at Embiggen Books in conversation with scientist and broadcaster Dr Krystal Evans. This promises to be a highlight of the Embiggen Books year!
