520 1  "By picking one newly discovered gene from each of the 
       twenty-three human chromosomes and telling its story, Matt
       Ridley recounts the history of our species and its 
       ancestors from the dawn of life to the brink of future 
       medicine. He finds genes that we share with bacteria, 
       genes that distinguish us from chimpanzees, genes that can
       condemn us to cruel diseases, genes that may influence our
       intelligence, genes that enable us to use grammatical 
       language, genes that guide the development of our bodies 
       and our brains, genes that allow us to remember, genes 
       that exhibit the strange alchemy of nature and nurture, 
       genes that parasitise us for their own selfish ends, genes
       that battle with one another and genes that record the 
       history of human migrations."--BOOK JACKET.
