“in this book Professor Penrose gives a succinct account of the known facts of human genetics in a way which will be comprehensible even to readers who have little previous acquaintance with the subject.  Many aspects of it are discussed; all the technical terms used are explained at the outset, and clear examples are given at the necessary points.  Detailed information is provided on questions such as the genetics of stature, colour blindness, twinning and mental traits; and full accounts are given of diseases like phenylketonuria and mongolism.  Wider topics are also dealt with, such as mutation, inbreeding, artificial insemination and eugenics.”
