CREATION by Adam Rutherford

Adam Rutherford’s CREATION was recently published in the UK and has been praised by the Financial Times, the Guardian, the Telegraph, and the Observer, which raved: “This is a brave and unusual book…the writing here is finely wrought, with virtuoso passages bringing to life the mundanity of a papercut…It is essential reading for anyone interested in the coming revolution.”

The Guardian noted, “Rutherford tells his stories with great brio and a disarming line in personal commentary…Creation is the perfect primer on the past and future of DNA,” while the Telegraph called it “an efficient, accessible overview of developments in synthetic biology to date.” The Financial Times also recommended the book, saying, “Rutherford’s academic background in genetics gives him a firm grasp of the intricacies of biochemistry – and he translates these superbly into clear English.” Meanwhile, Rutherford was also profiled in the Observer and interviewed on BBC by biochemist Professor Nick Lane about science of creation. Penguin will publish the book in the U.S. on June 13, 2013
