Recensioner i media
"Summer's must-read non-fiction book" * Huffington Post * "The Violinist's Thumb is one of the Ten Books to Look Out for in 2012" * New Scientist * "A fast-paced, breezy romp through history using DNA as a unifying theme... it's nerd-vana" * New Scientist * "Explored in his Bryson-esque style, [The Violinist's Thumb] provokes fascinating stuff, full of oddball stories and amazing facts. Kean's book is full of wonderfully weird anecdotes, but it's also an accessible history of the discovery and mapping of DNA... compellingly entertaining" * Daily Mail * "Sam Kean is the best science teacher you never had" * Entertainment Weekly *
