Gene - An Intimate History - Book

I took a few days off from work recently. During that time I read the book, The Gene - An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee.   I read that the gene is going to change the world, the same way the atom and the bit changed the world.

Advances in technology have enabled human beings to not just read but also write into a gene. The idea of debugging a human being by editing the gene is cause for celebration and cause for concern at the same time. You can read the New York Times review of the book here.
