A remarkable book- extremely comprehensive

I'm very impressed with this book- in 300 pages (of relatively small font), it covers all facets of genetics, including the latest research. They even mention genetics in pop culture with a listing of notable movies and books... The authors present the material with remarkable clarity...the only "error" I saw was when they state that humans are 99.99% the same (a recent study that just came out has now reduced this to 99.0%). Overall, this may be the best book for the layman- I've also heard good things about "Genetics for Dummies" (2005), but I haven't read that one yet...
