Reviews

'The Code Breaker's confident, cinematic style makes Crispr accessible like never before, taking readers on a journey that is exciting, as well as ethically treacherous.' * Financial Times *
'A page-turner ... The Code Breaker describes a dance to the music of time with these things as its steps, which began with Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel and shows no sign of ending.' * The Economist *
'Nobody knows this stuff and these people, and explains them, quite like Isaacson. If you need to know about CRISPR - and you do - this is the place to start.' * The Sunday Times *
'Compelling' * The New Statesman *
'An inspiring ride along perhaps the greatest frontier in science' * The Independent *
'He understands the tensions that drive discovery and how flawed brilliant people can be. This story was always guaranted to be a page-turner in his hands.' * The Guardian *
