Reviews

"The most important advance of our era. One of the pioneers of the field describes the exciting hunt for the key breakthrough and what it portends for our future" -- Walter Isaacson "Too important ... What may happen thanks to Doudna's [discovery] is dizzying ... for her, this is the future of medicine. If she's right, then Crispr is about to make our present healthcare concerns look surprisingly trivial" -- Bryan Appleyard * Sunday Times * "One of the architects of this miraculous biological technique ... explains the science clearly and excitingly as a kind of globalist detective story" * Telegraph * "Probably the greatest biological breakthrough since that of Francis Crick, James Watson and Rosalind Franklin... We owe Doudna several times over - for her discovery, for her zeal to take it from the lab into the clinic, for her involvement in the ethical issues raised, for her public engagement work, and now for this book" -- Peter Forbes * Guardian * "An urgent plea from the celebrated biologist whose discovery enabled us to rewrite the code of life. The future is in our hands as never before, and this book explains the stakes like no other" -- George Lucas
