Sharon Moalem (Author), Jonathan Prince (Author), Eric Conger (Narrator). I don't see the assertions Dr. Moalem makes here as being particularly controversial (at least, for anyone who accepts the basics of the theory of evolution). The fact that diseases are evolutionary pressures on the development of the human species seems very straightforward. Granted, how Dr. Moalem interprets some of these pressures may be subject to debate; however, the basic premise is sound. In fact, for anyone interested in the contemplation of the development of humans, this is a wonderful book.

Over the past 35 years at our cancer center, the disease presentation and the management and outcomes of PC have not changed significantly- with the exception of a decrease in use of radiotherapy.

How did a deadly genetic disease help our ancestors survive the bubonic plagues of Europe? Was diabetes evolution's response to the last Ice Age? Will a visit to the tanning salon help bring down your cholesterol? Why do we age? Why are some people immune to HIV? Can your genes be turned on—or off?

This was an excellent book for any health care layman like me in understanding what the physiology, history, philosophy, and science of human medicine is about. For me it unscrambled the confusion about where we are at in the field of medicine. We all get sick and we all like understanding.
A very enlightening read. I learned a lot especially about genetic science. Genetic research is now in vogue today especially in cancer research.

Sharon Moalem is a highly successful Doctor of Medicine and also a PHD in the Science of Microbiology Research. An interesting combination.
He is also a very good writer. You will love this book as I did! As a layman you will learn a great deal about human sickness disease and its history. This book does not make you a doctor because it is simplified, but you will begin to understand what is going on in medicine.
A Great Read.

I am not of a scientific bent, but I thought this was a wonderful book. The main theme - how the same genes that cause illness can be helpful as well was very interesting. The second theme of how genes may be present but not expressed - that is, beyond dominant and recessive, something prevents them from being active in the person and how often and in how many ways this happens was new to me.
The writing was incredible. It was easy for a non scientist to understand, which was definitely a plus, but the writing was wonderful. There were clever similes and funny asides and a powerful flow of thoughts that pulled you right in - I read this is an amazingly short time, in fact, I went back and read it a second time. In short, the ideas were very intriguing and the writing first rate (many fiction writers couldn't do as well for style and readability). It may not be enough for someone with a very deep understanding of the subject but I thought it hit the perfect note for the layman.

This is going into my list of favorite books. Sharon does an amazing job of cutting through eons of science narratives to give practical insight into what "we" really are the why behind our evolution. Read this book along with "Human: The Science Behind What Makes Us Unique" by Brian Gazzaniga and "The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins and you'll see more doors of curiosity open up in your own biology than you may be prepared for. I highly recommend this book to anyone who appreciates good scientific research and theory.

Recommend for sex education before puberty. Why? In the light of modern technological techniques of planned parenting and ability to log the nuances of both parents DNA, a new consideration in the education system highlight the workings on the history of genetics and its shaping by environmental selection before reaching reproductive age.

4 instead of 5 stars for the work I had to do to check a few things such as genetic material in red blood cells and fingernails. As outrageous as it seemed to me, some local breast cancer researchers confirm that modern techniques can find extremely small amounts of DNA and if caught at the right time even red blood cells MIGHT contain DNA. Moalem did not make the nuances of this in his writings.

Particular kudos goes to him, IMO, for getting to epigenetics relationship to jumping genes.

Pretty complex areas he covers for this coal miner, but I do have a problem with his reasoning for selecting of genetic tendencies to diabetes. Readers can make up their own minds.

Brutal honesty. To face ones past head on and alone is strength beyond any I've ever known.
It is actually terrifying in its purest form. A mother, who basically would have die so she can be a hero.
Chilled me to the bone and I recommend it to all readers, regardless of genres. It is well worth your time.

This book is probably one of the most significant books I have ever read. Sharon makes it for even Layman to understand the complex world of evolution and our role in the grand scheme of things. Many obscure things make sense after reading this great work. Thank you so much for writing something so great!
