Scientists expect one billion people to have their genomes sequenced by 2025, yet psychologist Steven Heine argues that the first thing we'll do upon receiving our DNA test results is to misinterpret them completely. We've become accustomed to media coverage about newly discovered "cancer" or "IQ" or "infidelity" genes, each one promising a deeper understanding of what makes us tick. But as Heine shows, most of these claims are misinterpretations of how our DNA really works, and here he dispels the myths to reveal a simple, profound truth: your genes create life, but they do not control it.

"An accessible contribution to what the author calls 'genetic literacy' and a satisfyingly hard-edged work of popular science."—Kirkus Reviews
