Reviews

'Carey's trawl of potential applications - such as high-yield rice varieties, therapies for sickle-cell disease and germline gene editing - is edifying. A focused snapshot of a brave new world.' * Nature *
'[A]n excellent, brisk guide to what is likely to happen as opposed to the fantastically remote.' * Los Angeles Review of Books *
'A brisk, accessible primer on the fast-moving field, a clear-eyed look at a technology that is already driving major scientific advances - and raising complex ethical questions.' -- Emily Anthes * Undark *
