What I'm Reading
Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, and the Future of the Human Race by Walter Isaacson
I first met Walter Isaacson when I was gifted with Leonardo da Vinci. It was beautifully written and follows the same path as some of my other favorites like David Grann, Erik Larson and Jon Krakauer. These writers take research and information and build a story that reads like a novel. It helps soften some of the hard-edges of non-fiction. Isaacson is explaining the science behind DNA and RNA in a way I can understand. There are huge implications for what this means and the ethical questions will be well discussed. It's a slow read for me, but worth the time.
