Directed toward an introductory course in undergraduate genetics, Genetics is printed in an attractive format with numerous drawings and tables. The author presents his tale with clarity and ease. Coverage of the many tools and concepts of the basic geneticist, while brief, is quite good, particularly when one considers that the book is but 347 pages long. Approximately one-half is devoted to text and one-fourth to illustrations. Each chapter contains detailed and thought-provoking questions. The twenty-seven pages of bibliography are excessive when related to a one-semester course in genetics, but, if diligently pursued by a physician, would prove rewarding.
