About Book

The New York Times Book Review, Jacqueline Boone
Grace makes his complex subject easy to digest by dividing each chapter into palatable sections with clever subheads and often humorous sidebars, including a recipe for making DNA that calls for ingredients like "a handful of bacteria (about a thousand million)." He includes a dispassionate discussion of ethical repercussions and public concerns.... Since "the focus of biotechnology companies is profit, not philanthropy," Biotechnology Unzipped serves to caution us that without the requisite judiciousness, even the most wondrous and potentially life-saving feats of science "cannot, in the end, save us from who we are".
