The Gene: an intimate history

This book by Siddhartha Mukherjee is a very enjoyable, exciting and interesting. It not only explains the concepts but also brings to life the scientists and researchers involved in genetic research vividly — from Darwin and Mendeleev to some of the recent Nobel laureates (such as the ones who were studying cheese and ended up contributing to genetic research). Strongly recommended. A very satisfying and enjoyable read.
