about

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a Summary Of Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro and not the original book.

Find out how your genes influence you – and how you influence your genes.
The science of genetics has captured the public imagination. Perhaps not since the 1950s, when Watson and Crick derived the double-helical chemical structure of DNA, has public interest been so fervid. A common legacy, genes are now also a scientific lodestar; understanding what we’ve inherited from the past seems to promise a new and exciting future. Indeed, we hope that deciphering the human genome will expand humanity’s horizons in fantastic and unimaginable ways.
Currently, genes define what we are now. When we admire an exceptional athlete’s physical ability, we ascribe it to her genes. When we marvel at a genius’s mental capacity, we ascribe it to her genes. Strength, intelligence, beauty – genes determine whether you have these qualities or not.
But that’s not the whole story. Our genes don’t only influence who we are; we also have great influence over our genes.
In these blinks, you’ll find out not only how your genes determine your looks, your sex and even your diet but how your genes change with your actions and behavior, and even with the actions of others. In short, you’ll learn how your genes influence you and how you influence your genes.
You’ll also learn
•Why Ötzi the caveman didn’t like milk.
•Why identical twins may look very different.
•Why smoking spoils the pleasure of your morning coffee.
