The Rough Guide to Genes & Cloning

My first Rough Guide, in 2007. Co-written with Dr Jess Buxton, geneticist, science writer and wonderwoman. It was a lot of fun exploiting the Rough Guide format to incorporate lots of history and culture along with the science. Known to my daughters, for reasons only they can explain, as The Rough Guide to Jeans and Clothing – their cover design was different, too…
