Mapping the human genome proved to be just the beginning in understanding our genes, what makes us human, and how we can use the knowledge to cure inherited diseases. John Parrington describes an emerging picture of our genome, in 3D, with many non-gene players and environmental influences, that is far more complex and subtle than we ever imagined.

Terry Sullivan, International Socialism A lively and engaging popuar science book... I recommend it.

Times Higher Education, Charalambos P Kyriacou It's a game-changer and a masterpiece for anyone interested in biology

The Scientist, Bob Grant ... a good primer on the subtlety and complexity of the genome, especially the human genome, new facets of which emerge on a regular basis from labs around the world.

New Scientist, Clare Ainsworth The Deeper Genome... provides an elegant, accessible account of the profound and unexpected complexities of the human genome, and shows how many ideas developed in the 20th century are being overturned.

New York Journal of Books A compelling book that will enrich your knowledge of genetics and its potential.

Nature, Nathaniel Comfort Overall, this is a faithful, engaging portrait of the twenty-first-century genome

John Mattick, Director, Garvan Institute of Medical Research This is a brilliant book - a wonderfully entertaining history of molecular biology and the surprises and controversies of a field still very much in flux, from early explorations to the emerging realisation that the human genome may be far more sophisticated than we ever imagined.
