The story of human DNA has a valid claim to being the greatest story ever told. Along the highly entertaining way, we discover myriad gripping facts - did you know that in DNA terms we are 8 per cent virus? Or that DNA may be able to explain why some people like cats and crashing motorbikes? This title provides the answer to such questions.

Sam Kean spent years collecting mercury from broken thermometers as a child and now he is a writer in Washington DC. His work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Mental Floss, Slate, Air & Space/Smithsonian and New Scientist. In 2009 he was a runner-up for the National Association of Science Writers' Evert Clark/Seth Payne Award for best science writer under the age of thirty. He currently writes for Science. His first book, The Disappearing Spoon, was a New York Times bestseller and was shortlisted for the Royal Society's Winton Prize for science writing.

"The Violinist's Thumb is one of the Ten Books to Look Out for in 2012" New Scientist "Enthralling... wonderfully witty... Kean's thoughtful, humorous book is a joy to read" Publishers Weekly
