Reviews

'Armand Leroi combines meticulous historical research, brand-new genetic understanding and consummate skill with words to tell an absorbing tale.' Matt Ridley, author of Genome and Nature Via Nurture 'Erudite, gracefully crafted ! Enriching his observations and insights with examples drawn from science, medicine, history, philosophy and the arts, Leroi lifts us to a profound sense of wonder.' Sunday Times 'Poetic, philosophical, profound, witty and challenging.' Guardian 'Mutants thrills and repels and informs us of the delicacy and wonder of growth and development. It is written with great grace.' Richard Fortey, author of The Earth 'Leroi writes beautifully, charging his case histories with drama and pathos.' Time Out 'Dr Leroi's book is genuinely instructive and enlightening, a brilliant admixture of curious historical anecdote and up-to-date science, written in excellent and often elegant prose.' Spectator
