"It is refreshing to read a book aimed at the public that is not solely focused on humans and that shows how basic science research with other organisms can lead to interesting and major contributions to our knowledge... I would recommend it as a gift that biomedical scientists might like to give their family and friends in the interest of promoting public knowledge."

"...some of the best and most current thought in genomics. ... The essays are well written and accessible to almost anyone interested in the areas represented. ... All in all, a unique snapshot of a pivotal period in science and a valuable addition to most libraries. Summing up: Highly recommended."

"The book works best because, reading between the lines, you are able to see a little way into the future--or at least one possible version of the future. ...this book gives you some impressively concise and relevant hints about where these things are likely to be heading during the course of the next century or so."
