Moore's book provides an excellent introduction to any serious lay reader wishing to get a
grasp on what is meant by "epigenetics." At the same time, it provides a higher-level
discussion that specialists in different disciplines outside of biology and psychology will
find stimulating and challenging. The wealth of research findings cited and discussed by
Moore will give any serious reader pleasure and pause for thought.
