A Troublesome Inheritance by Nicholas Wade

A Troublesome Inheritance by Nicholas Wade

This book got my attention when the PC thought police immediately started accusing the author of being a racist. That’s always a very good sign that the author could simply be touching on the truth. So of course I had to read it.

Nicholas Wade completely dispels the above accusation with facts and rational discussion. He is anything but a racist but instead writes a very intelligent survey of current science in genetics, anthropology and more. This book was written for the lay person but would still be less meaningful to those with no exposure to genetics, anthropology, sociology and science. It’s quite academic but an easy read none the less.

Probably not one I would recommend for those that read only a book a year but if the topic interest you it’s a worthy read. Like all science, our knowledge will grow and change. I certainly don’t agree with all presented in the book based on some of my exposure in these areas, but it is an up to date and intelligent discussion with many points worth thought and consideration. So as usual Hit The Books, They Don’t Hit Back!
