Very readable and informative. I highly recommend this book if just for the last section which is worth thinking about and discussing with friends and family.
The Epigenetic Epilogue projects possible impacts on us all: natural vs exotic; at home vs. jet setting; personal vs. generic; privacy vs. publicity; singularity vs. multiarity; diversity vs. sustainability & safety. Will we become a new species?
