The Violinist's Thumb And Other Lost Tales of Love War and Genius as Written by Our Genetic CodeThe author s arents were named Gene and Jean That s right Gene and Jean Kean What else could their son do but write a book about genetics And a fun book it is with some fascinating stories There is enough DNA in a human body to stretch from Pluto to the sun and back There s enough DNA on earth to stretch across the known universe many many times Fruit fly genes have fun names such as groucho smurf fear of intimacy lost in space smellblind faint sausage tribble from the Star Trek episode and tinman if mutated can The Last Year Of Being Married Mira prevent fruit flies from growing a heart A mutant armadillo gene gives fruit flies alated exoskeleton The turnip gene makes flies stupid like they just fell off the turnip truck Tudor genes leave flies without The Signal And The Noise The Art And Science Of Prediction progeny When a cleopatra gene interacts with an asp gene it can kill the fly A cheap date gene leaves flies tipsy after a sip of alcohol Ken and barby mutants have no genitalia Male coitus interruptus gene mutants spend just ten minutes on sex when the norm is twenty Stuck mutant genes cannothysically disengage after sex Female dissatisfaction mutants have no sex at all There are some fun names occasionally elsewhere also A scaramanga gene named after the James Bond villain gives mammals extra nipples The vlad tepes genes removes blood from fish The Siempre Nos Quedar El Verano pokemon gene almostrovoked a lawsuit The flour beetle s medea gene kills a female s Psycho progeny If you ever think you had a bad day just remember the story of Tsutoma Yamaguchi in August 1945 He survived two atomic explosions on that day The whole story isretty amazing but I will never complain about my day again He lived until the year 2010 The author oints to the small hope in the fact that thousands of children of A bomb survivors remained alive as he wrote the book Zipf s Law states something like the biggest or most common item in each class was twice as big or common as the second item which is twice as big as the third item and so on This seemed to apply with words

chimpanzee genes He failed when he jammed human sperm into chimp vaginas and not their uteruses Artificial insemination was considered shameful by the church A barren couple having sex would have someone listening in at the door and then charge in at the last moment with a batch of sperm to shove into the woman in an effort to trick her egg cells into believing it came from intercourse Trofim

rotting teeth a swelling nose and lips that flopped open and drooled Thus he wore a stylish beard He encouraged rumors to help his reputation with you know who He had the nickname Tripod for you know

Political Thought privies He even built his own hidden one Darwin s favorite child died at age ten thus ending any remnants of a religious faith The great thing about Darwin is all that he accomplished under these conditions A truly great man The great Edward O Wilson suggested there may be genetic roots to some social differences He was blasted for it Activists charged him onstage where he was in a wheelchair and threw ice water on him and shouting about genocide Idiots Someeople thought of cloning Jesus himself by lifting DNA from the Shroud of Turin Ridiculous I know But it brought out this great comment You are trying to bring back the one erson who is supposed to come back anyway There is a fucM gene in mice that can be changed to cause lesbians I have never been able to figure out the Darwinian conundrum about homosexuality It does not PROMOTE THE SPECIES NO ANSWERS YET the species No answers yet with racial issues Unfortunately both are difficult to touch Croesus once went to hear the oracle at Delphi You will destroy a great empire Of course it turned out to be his own Our DNA is like an oracle Do we want to listen Kean manages to cram enough information into this book to satisfy the armchair historian biologist or trivia aficionado while somehow keeping it readable and entertainingIt s a rather monumental task combining the history of science with the latest discoveries He s retty good about explaining without talking down I think he assumed most of his readers would be like me took bio in high school and have vaguely kept up with discoveries announced in the Money For Blood press but have to shamefacedly admit that while we ve heard of RNA we can t really uite remember exactly what it does He defines terms as he goes assuming that you don t really remember or know a lot of this but that you re intelligent enough to keep up I think I did for the mostart There were so Forever Yours Stories Of Wartime Love And Friendship paragraphs that I d definitely need to go back and rereadossibly with a reference to fully understand but he generally Deadpool Classic Vol 9 picks you again on the other side with enough of a layman s description that even if you didn t uite follow how all theroteins come together you.

Can still understand the overall implications by the end And he does it without making you feel like a dolt which is nice Did I understand everything fully No Will I retain what I did get Probably some of it robably not all But I think my overall understanding of where we stand at the moment is drastically improvedAnd all along he illustrates the science with history Stories about the scientists who made the discoveries about famous cases from Paganini to Einstein about weird discoveries in our own genome Did you know that an enormous amount of our DNA appears to have been stolen from bacteria and viruses The Firestarters 100 Job Profiles To Inspire Young Women placenta looks like it was reverse engineered from the traits that retroviruses use to hide from immune systems Without incorporating retrovirus DNA into our own we never could have developed live birth He usually develops a sense of tension by introducing a story at the beginning of a chapter and leaving it at a cliffhanger to explain the science going on behind the case He ll touch base with the chapter s story two or three times using it to illustrate various facets of a discovery before finally resolving the original story by the end of the chapter It s a remarkably effective techniue of breaking up the long explanationsOverall it s a fascinating look about what we know about what makes our bodies work and how we learned it What I learned from reading Sam Kean s The Violinist s Thumb and Other Lost Tales of Love War and Genius as Written by Our Genetic Code Little Brown and Company 2012I should

hysically disengage after coitus As for females dissatistfaction mutants never have sex at all they spend all their energy shooing suitors away by snapping their wings And thankfully this whimsy with names has inspired the occasional zinger in other areas of genetics A gene that gives mammals extra nipples earned the name scaramanga after the James Bond villain with too many A gene that removes

demonstrate the humor that might not be expected in a book on scientific history When I taught at an engineering university students freuently informed me that engineers weren t supposed to be creative Kean certainly refutes that belief so far as genetic engineers and researchers are concerned After reading a number of other The Golden Theme How To Make Your Writing Appeal To The Highest Common Denominator popular sciencepsychology books this summer I found myself appreciating Kean s organization The content of each chapter seemed necessary and I appreciated the coherence of his arrangement of anecdotes I only occasionally had trouble followingassages the one on genetic algorithms for example Usually I felt very focused and never thought Oh no it s another random case study a common enough reaction when I m wending my way through best selling works of nonfiction I recommend this book to my creative writing The Principles Of Sufism peers bothoets and fiction writers as I think they will find Kean s approach to be both informative and inspirational This got off to a bad start for me when on age 33 approach to be both informative and inspirational This got off to a bad start for me when on age 33 euated Darwinian natural selection and survival of the fittest Herbert Spencer andor social Darwinism were never mentioned Then in an incendiary chapter on cats and toxoplasmosis toxo he never explains that a cat who has lived indoors all its life cannot carrytransmit the disease Then what else The tone was too cutesy and much of the material was too simplistic glossing over opposing viewpoints or assuming the reader s ignorance or silly sentences like I don t want to get all eugenicky on you And he often went to Mammoth Lakes Sierra A Handbook For Roadside And Trail pains not to use common terms such asunctuated euilibrium or corpus callosum or haplotype as if these would scare off the reader At least once Kean committed the unforgiveable sin of calling chimpanzees and gorillas monkeysThe other roblem with this book was that there were no endnotes er s Several times I wanted to know where Kean was getting his information and whomwhat he was How It Feels To Live With A Physical Disability para Genes are at the heart of this book and the author just happens to havearents named Gene and Jean last name Kean so this topic is in his well you get it Sam Kean is one *of my favorite authors deftly explaining scientific concepts in the context of the fascinating figures * my favorite authors deftly explaining scientific concepts in the context of the fascinating figures first brought them to our attention The stories are full of the humor and foibles of real life and that realistic treatment brings the Nobody S Poodle people and situations to life all the convincingly Kean has a remarkable knack for finding fun anecdotes and interesting connections that reinforce concepts throughout his books His enthusiasm is infectuous and bleeds out in the form of humor copious end notes additional notes and illustrations on his website and in the case of this book a hidden acrostic message encoded in the Chapters Paragraphs I ve already spent a couple hours trying to decode it and am likely over thinking it but figured I should write this review first or who knows how long I ll be working this outThe Violinist s Thumb is about the history of genes and DNA how we came to uestion the nature of inheritance our first inklings of the structures involved dalliances with fruit flies seuencing genomes encodingroteins suffering mutations City Slab 9 puzzling over freaks and chimeras swapping DNA with Neanderthals detecting virus intrustions all the way up to our current improved yet incomplete understanding of what makes us us As of 2012 anyhow Having completed all four of Kean s books I dub this the most challenging The subject matter itself is incredibly dense metaphorically as well as literally six feet of DNA is crammed into every one of our cells and the DNA from one body could travel from the sun to Pluto and almost return Kean has to describe with words a lot of things that are hard to understand even withictures and there are a lot of moving Children Of Time parts one again literally and competing concurrentrocesses to consider when thinking about the complex actions of DNA RNA The Life Of Adolf Hitler proteins mutations nutrients and drugs bacteria viruses and epigenetic factors There are manyassages I had to read multiple times just to understand well enough to rocede if you ve had fo. N esplora ueste e altre uestioni e ci mostra come da ualche arte nel groviglio di filamenti della doppia elica si trovino le risposte a molti misteri sugli esseri umani La decifrazione del codice genetico non è stata facile ma grazie a essa gli scienziati sono ora in grado di leggere le storie stupefacenti e vecchie di migliaia o a volte milioni di anni scritte nel nostro dna Come un antico oracolo che non ha ancora smesso di arlare il dna sa raccontarci le grandi saghe delle origini e dell'evoluzione della nostra Rmal training in genetics this will likely come much easier to youCharacters familiar and unfamiliar are represented We of course learn a lot about Mendel and Darwin but also about Friedrich Miescher and his efforts in a cold castle kitchen to extract dna from salmon sperm never knowing exactly what he had accomplished Thomas Hunt Morgan and the scientists in his lab bred gazillions of fruit flies in work that led to multiple Nobel Prizes but Morgan he often took credit for ideas and never Born From The Heart paid an essential contributor he didn tay the fruit flies either Watson and Crick are here but so is Sister Miriam Michael Stimson a nun who made their discovery ossible we also learn of the clergical error that led to her getting the name Michael and that she contributed to the invention of Preparation H Lynn Margulis s brilliant This is a very good and entertaining survey of the history of genetics I learned a great deal about DNA how it works and how scientists are trying to unravel its secretsEvery chapter contains some fascinating facts histories and insights For example Kean makes analogies between music linguistics and the structure of DNA The freuency of various notes in classical music follows a ower law The freuency of words in literature also follows a From Entitlement To Engagement Affirming Millennial Students Egos In The Higher Education Classroom New Directions For Teaching And Learning Number 135 power law Note Kean does not mention the termower law but he describes it in other words He shows that at some level DNA codes also follow a Horseback On The Boston Post Road 1704 power law He shows howalindromes do arise in DNA occasionally and how they have affected X and Y chromosomesKean explains how various genetics resear I m going to be honest and tell you the entire reason I Feminist Thought picked up The Violinist s Thumb by Sam Kean is not because I m interested in biology or DNA or anything to do with science really it s because the name Paganini drew me inI ve never been the type of girl to understand science The closest I came was a low C in Biology 14 years ago when I attended the University of Wyoming Ever since then I ve operated under the assumption that magic sparkles course through my veins that storks bring babies to deservingarents and that my father gave me his caterpillar eyebrows as a way to torture This book was really good and I can t believe how long it took me to finish it But even though it is written in a way that makes it easy and engaging for anyone I found that I had to take lots of time to absorb it I d leave it for days at a time and then not get very far But it wasn t due to being boring or dry Sam Kean is an engaging story teller and he made a complicated work very accessible In Kean s follow up to The Disappearing Spoon he keeps the same breezy form but switches his subject from chemistry to genetics While we get science history and anecdotal stories than The Fmla Handbook A Union Guide To The Family And Medical Leave Act pure science we still learn much about how our genome works Kean writes for the general reader Using his tongue in cheek style he delivers short vignettes of scientists and famouseople with genetic The Makers Of Modern Italy Napoleonmussolini peculiaritiesThe book begins with Darwin and Mendel and follows their ideas up through double helix discoverers Watson and Crick I had read about these men s accomplishments but little of what had happened in between So I foundarticularly interesting descriptions of the scientists whose incremental advances set the stage for the discovery of DNA s structure and function Much of the book is tangential For example we learn how DNA rotects olar bears from overdosing on vitamin A from their diet of vitamin A rich seal meat The vitamin A is stored in their liver Kean gives us an account of arctic explorers who nearly died eating it Even further afield he highlights the Under Two Billionaire Brothers protozoanarasite Toxo which makes cysts in Ciudad Abandonada En El Fondo De Mi Corazn people s brains It can influence their emotions and even induce a love of cats He tells us about an infected couple who took in hundreds of catsKean also digs into the seedier side of genetics He brings up Ilya Ianovich Ivanov who convinced the Bolshevik regime in Russia that he could create humanzees Perhaps Stalin envisioned slave humanzee armies Fortunately his grisly experiments failed We learn how DNA allows creatures like ligers and zonkeys but not humanzees However most of us carry some Neanderthal DNAThere is much less diversity in the human genome than in most other species Kean attributes this toopulation bottlenecks many thousands of years ago when our numbers were greatly reduced and our survival as a species was tenuous Small Jewish Soul Tango Of Death 3 populations lead understandably to inbreeding and genetic similarity but also to faster evolution It is much easier for a new trait to sweep through a smallopulationGenetics is a

FACTOR IN MANY SPECIAL ABILITIES AND 
in many special abilities and Regarding intelligence not much seems certain There are too many forces at Hershey S Milk Chocolate Multiplication Book play Kean highlights how genetic basedhysical oddities did contribute to two great musicians Rachmaninoff because of his huge hands wrote music only he could Blessed How To Be A Joyful Mystic play with ease The great nineteenth century violinist Paganini had hands uniuely flexible and strong due to a genetic condition that affected the way his body made collagen Kean describes the competition of the 1990 s to seuence the human genome The amazing speed with which this was accomplished was due to brute force methods that leave us with a lot of data we are just beginning to understand Adding to the complexity of the genome is epigenetics the ramping up or down of gene expression through cellularrincesses driven largely by non coding DNA Epigenetic factors influenced by the environment may even in some circumstances affect offspring Lastly Kean looks at the future DNA modification can have huge benefits but may just open Pandora s Box If Sam Kean had a bandwagon I d be on it If he were stock I d buy him If he were ice cream I d shove him into a waffle cone andokay well now things are just getting weird I ve waxed Recode T G C A The Grayson Cole Affair poetic about my love of Kean before and this is another delightful Keanroduction though Oil Of Joy How To Support Those Battling Cancer perhaps not uite as wonderful as othersarticularly Caesar s Last Breath which I think is his best work to dateGenerally speaking Kean s books link a string of enlightening and often entertaining anecdotes together under a common theme a formula The Violinist s Thumb continues Here however the anecdotes feel a bit less tightly connected It s like a bunch of three year olds Star Trek The Newspaper Comics Volume 2 Complete Dailies And Sundays 1981 1983 playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey at a birthdayarty Like the sight of drunken midgets blindly wobbling toward a wall and trying to Velcro a superfluous appendage to a mule s ass it s highly entertaining and some of it hits the mark Crocodile On The Sandbank perfectly At other times however the tail ends up on the nose or maybe in the case of the little funny kid who can tronounce R s and always forgets which end of the spoon to hold attached to the back of grandma s homemade sweater Still it s well worth a read Gvadi Bigva particularly for Kean s nuanced discussion of the controversial implications of genetics research on race sexuality and other hot button topics His deft handling of measuring theotential benefits of such research against the need to be in how and how uickly we interpret such results is a masterclass in compassionate rationalism and makes compelling case for Kean to be appointed Secretary of Science StuffWait that s not a thing Is it just because our current Under The Wide And Starry Sky president thinks climate change is a Chinese hoax or is it just normally not a thing It s normally not a thing Well that s stupid When I mresident it will be a thing And I will appoint Sam Kean as the Secretary of Science Stuff Also I will reverse the current administration s stance that science like Transatlantic Samuel Cunard Isambard Brunel And The Great Atlantic Steamships pro gay cakes and facts are only for snowflake libtards and I will insist that we actually use it as a basis for things like I don t know environmentalolicy Okay I m off the soapboxFeel free to join me on the bandwagon folks There s Hidden plenty of room.
