From the Back Cover:

LEARN THE ABC'S OF DNA (AND HEREDITY)

Now anyone with an interest in genetics can master it -- without med school classes, Nobel Prize intelligence, or unlimited time.

In Genetics Demystified, award-winning science writer Edward Willett provides an effective and painless way to learn or review genetics, from Mendel's first experiments with pea plants through today's controversies over cloning.

With Genetics Demystified, you master the subject one step at a time -- at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide breaks genetics into manageable, interesting segments, and provides a quiz at the end of each chapter to reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses. An 80-question final exam reviews the entire book.

A fast, entertaining route to learning a complex subject, this reader-friendly guide helps you:

  • Unravel the mysteries of DNA, RNA, and the Human Genome Project
  • Learn how traits pass from one generation to the next
  • Find out how DNA is used to track evolution and solve historical and current mysteries
  • Discover how genetic engineering may cure and prevent disease and make better crops -- and what the risks may be
  • Find the link between cancer and the genetic code
  • See how viruses "hijack heredity"
  • Take a final exam and grade it yourself!

A quick, effective way to learn genetics, Genetics Demystified is the perfect shortcut to a deeper understanding of one of the most fascinating fields of our times.
