    1. This audio program is not technically a book. Rather, it is a series of fourteen lectures by college professor Betsy Dexter Dyer on a wide range of topics in introductory genetics. Dyer eloquently brings the subject alive, effectively overcoming the lack of any visual input in an audio program by introducing a series of metaphors to represent complex genetic topics. For example, she introduces a “cookie factory in a black box designed by Rube Goldberg” to explain the concepts of gene sequenc [...]

    2. This was an absolutely fascinating book on genetics. The author used color of dogs as her example and I learned just how complex some colors of dogs are, especially white dogs. The most interesting part was how the genes have switches which activate them only under certain conditionsif the color is brown and if the hair length is ? thenMs. Dyer also has a way of explaining even the most complex concepts in ways that layman can understand. Not only will this book explain basic genetics to you, bu [...]

    3. Professor Betsey Dexter Dyer examines the wide ranging field of genetics, which is the study of the hereditary information of organisms, how it is used, and how it is transferred through generations. These fascinating lectures also address DNA sequences and how they apply to "genetic engineering," viruses, and genetic diseases such as cancers and birth defects. In addition to examining why people look and act the way they do, the course also considers the philosophical issues associated with suc [...]

    4. Pretty good entry level genetics course. No much (or not at all) background required in genetics or even biology. I'd say that it would be pretty good for either teens in secondary school interested in biology (or tech) or for anyone without any technical experience. For people used to technical books - there might be not enough "juice" within this course. People with prior biology background should probably skip this altogetherHO too many digressions and visualization, not enough juice. Still - [...]

    5. Always nice to return to basicsNicely explained with lots of metaphors, the course was short, to the point and interesting. I especially liked the parts about explaining cloning and the common misconceptions about "identical" clones. Thanks to this book, I will be more critical of sci-fi with literature containing clones :)Well worth a read :)

    6. Absolutely loved it. It's a series of lectures read by the author and I found it to be a really wonderful intro to the topic. Great pacing, very clear explanations, and plenty of examples. I now have my eyes on Modern Scholar's courses and really hope the rest are the same quality.

    7. Profr. Betsey takes pains to "dumb down" genetics. Great way of teaching in a recording. I understood things about Mendel and genetics I did not since middle school. This can be due to other factors, but she can almost read minds in the sense that repeats and clarifies exactly where is needed.
