Manufacturer Description

From New york city Times bestselling author Sam Kean comes more extraordinary tales of science, history, language, and music, as informed by our own DNA.

In The Disappearing Spoon, bestselling author Sam Kean opened the secrets of the routine table. In THE VIOLINIST'S THUMB, he checks out the wonders of the magical foundation of life: DNA.

There are genes to explain crazy feline ladies, why other people have no fingerprints, and why some individuals make it through nuclear bombs. Genes light up everything from JFK's bronze skin (it wasn't a tan) to Einstein's genius. They verify that Neanderthals and people bred hundreds of years more just recently than any of us would feel comfortable thinking. They can even permit some individuals, due to the fact that of the exceptional versatility of their thumbs and fingers, to become truly singular violinists.

Kean's vibrant storytelling when again makes science amusing, discussing human history and whimsy while demonstrating how DNA will influence our species' future.
