THE VIOLINIST’S THUMB
by SAM KEAN
In THE VIOLINIST’S THUMB, Sam Kean uses the forensic traces in our DNA to illuminate how humans evolved from primordial muck to the most dominant species on the planet, how studying language, art, and history can reveal the scientific workings of DNA–and vice-versa, and how the human line almost went extinct, twice, causing us to be more closely related than any other species.
There are genes to explain crazy cat ladies, a love of reckless activities, and a talent for the violin; genes that could allow someone to survive in the arctic. THE VIOLINIST’S THUMB uses genes to reveal so much about our past, and leaves us wondering if and how scientists will manipulate DNA to alter our species’ future.
