The title of this book itself The Human Recipe illustrates the tongue in cheek approach of the authors to genetic determinism. We find rare and provocative, multidisciplinary insights and perceptions into the socio-ethical issues surrounding both reproductive technologies, genetic research and clinical genetics. Accessible and yet as complex and human as genetic information itself - a must read!
