These 22 interviews were conducted by University of California Professor Jane Gitschier for publication in the scientific journal PLoS Genetics over the past 5 years. Here these interviews are presented as a single, stand-alone collection for the first time. The collection makes a compelling read by capturing exhilarating moments of discovery on a wide range of genetic questions as recounted by the scientists themselves. We also hear from scientists whose careers have taken on a broader role a University president, a master teacher, an author, the founder of a company, and an explorer. Further perspective is provided by several non-scientists whose work helps frame our understanding and practice of genetics; these include a judge, a reporter, an administrator, and an historian of science. Together, this collection brings to life the practice and societal implications of contemporary genetics.

Review:

The book is a collection of interviews......Each interview is essentially a transcribed conversation, and as such, gives the reader the feeling of sitting in on an evening gathering among friends. The researchers reveal not only the background behind their discoveries, but some of the details of their training and early years that will prove inspirational to scientists at all stages of their careers. --Choice

People do the science, and their stories add the oohs and aahs to the results. Sometimes they even help us to get a better grasp of their ideas. Jane Gitschier, a UCSF Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics, looked into these stories by conducting 22 interviews with people engaged in genetics. Through their anecdotes, written down in Speaking of Genetics, we get to know the human side of important events which took place over the last decades....the book offers the opportunity to immerse...into the events and eureka moments behind the big results....Jane Gitschier...makes good use of both her knowledge as a human geneticist and her interest in people's stories, conferring on the book an optimal combination of science and personal life. Her enthusiasm is contagious. --Lab Times

The usefulness of this volume lies in gathering these transcripts into a single, organized source. This collection could be valuable to researchers as motivational, or at least intriguing, stories of discovery or they could be employed to inspire interest in new biology students. In either case, the personal touch added by hearing from the researchers themselves conveys an energy and excitement often lacking in scientific publications. This appears to have been the goal of the author, as she explicitly states that her aim was to get other scientists to think about and discuss their own stories of scientific discovery. --The Quarterly Review of Biology
