"Renneberg's newest book, Who Cloned My Cat?, is a personal journey through the science and politics of biotechnology. Following in the tradition of Lewis Thomas and Stephen J. Gould, Renneberg has created a book perfectly suited for recreational reading, full of scientific wonder and social context."
―Prof. David Goodsell, The Scripps Research Institute, USA
"What a scientific book - interesting and informative! Using many funny illustrations and simple words, biotechnology is no longer a bugaboo for common people. This is the book that experts as well as beginners want to keep at their side."
―Prof. Michihiko Kobayashi, University of Tsukuba, Japan
