Book review: ‘The Single Helix: A Turn Around the World of Science’ by Steve Jones

Short science essays from the famous geneticist and snail man.

The Single HelixThese essays are mainly taken from Steve Jones's regular Daily Telegraph column. They cover all aspects of science, not just Jones's specialist area. Being based on a newspaper column, they tend to be a bit too short for my liking, but they are well written and often amusing.

A fun read.
