Description
Humans possess some 25,000 genes, but it is those that vary the most from person to person—our "compatibility genes"—that form the molecular signature making each of us unique. A shocking amount of who we are and what we do is directly influenced by the way we have evolved to survive disease, posits Daniel Davis, who explains how these same genes influence the wiring of our brains, the mates we choose, and the success of pregnancies. While telling the stories of patients who have survived disease due to lucky genetic inheritances, and of scientists who made breakthroughs in the discovery of these genes, Davis considers such controversial topics as individual medicine and personal genetics.

"Davis's readable and informative book takes the reader into unexpectedly interesting corners of both the immune system and the lives of immunologists. It is packed with an insider's knowledge—not just of the field, but of where its bodies are buried."—NYTimes
