Even I could understand it. Just think: The end of malaria? HIV? Sickle disease? I hope I live long enough to see this progression. I believe Brazil released billions of gene edited mosquitoes to end the horror of Zika.
This is the perfect book for both the non-scientist and the scientifically bent. The CRISPR technology and gene editing are among the most important advances in science and medicine. The book is well written and everyone I recommended it to has thanked me profusely for the suggestion.
Very interesting - easy to get distracted at times in the details.
Fascinating and accessible. I loved the discussion of the ethical issues. Not as simple as I thought
Outstanding!! Walter Isaacson shows why he is considered one of America’s greatest non-fiction writers. He takes complex science and makes it understandable for people , like me, that have no science aptitude. I cannot encourage people enough to read this book.
Fascinating, loved it
I total science nerd basically a contemporary of the people mentioned in this book, I started in the same direction and beard up in the medicine. This is very exciting kidney on the edge of my seat and honestly I wouldn’t of cared who narrated it I couldn’t stop the whole concepts how are completely just the beginning. And Covid but them all together for one cause, “ The entire human race“. This story has only just begun.
As a bit of a science nerd, with family ties to Berkeley, the book was interesting and certainly worth the time to listen. Although I like the reader, Kathe Mazur, I am not sure her style fit this book.
One of the most interesting books I’ve ever read! Or listened to.
