Interesting topic. I am a layman on the subject, and wanted to know the state of technology. Readers should be aware that half the book was over my head, but the other half provided the information I was looking for. Problem is , you need to listen to the whole book. I gave 4 stars figuring the background data is provided for those who understand it. The narration is like listening to a computer-derived voice, very monotone with no emotion or emphasis. I found I had to focus on listening more attentively.
Narrator sounds robotic at times and it is very hard to keep up with certain terminology unless you’re versed in the subject.
I chose to sit through the heavy chapters with lots of Genomics terminology and acronyms and pay as much attention as possible. Whatever stuck, good. Whatever didn’t, I didn’t fuss about.
Some chapters are definitely lighter and less Bio-Genetics lecture like, those were the ones I was hoping the book would be like.
Overall interesting but wouldn’t recommend it to someone just wanted to read and learn about genomics lightly
The book is amazing. A detailed history of genetics and it's applications. The narration was for me somehow difficult to get used to at the beginning. But that's just a personal opinion
Narrator sounds too much like a robot so I could not listen to the book
