Reviews

“This is not a book to just read, it is a tool with exquisitely selected artwork that can be used by genetics counselors, clinical geneticists, and professors in the field of genetics, as well as by secondary, undergraduate, and graduate students. This is a must-have book.” (Luis F Escobar, Doody's Book Reviews, November 08, 2019)
