あらすじ・解説

The best-selling author of Leonardo da Vinci and Steve Jobs returns.

In 2012, Nobel Prize winning scientist Jennifer Doudna hit upon an invention that will transform the future of the human race: an easy-to-use tool that can edit DNA.

Known as CRISPR, it opened a brave new world of medical miracles and moral questions. It has already been deployed to cure deadly diseases, fight the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 and make inheritable changes in the genes of babies. 

But what does that mean for humanity? Should we be hacking our own DNA to make us less susceptible to disease? Should we democratise the technology that would allow parents to enhance their kids?

After discovering this CRISPR, Doudna is now wrestling these even bigger issues.

The Code Breaker is an examination of how life as we know it is about to change - and a brilliant portrayal of the woman leading the way.

Incredible

If you like sci fi, you’ll love this book. It’s interesting to learn about the frontiers that science could push in the near future. There are so many moral dilemmas addressed in this book. Great for personal reflection and for conversation with others.

interesting topic but writing is biased

such an interesting topic. Some of book was about Doudna, some about history of CRSPR, some seemed to be author's opinions. Much of book was biased and therefore didn't given a balanced history/story. Moralising was introduced and author's opinions shaded the story. At points, I wanted to give up on the book but I continued until the end. The story makes you believe that there is a lot of collaboration in science but that the American desire to be at the top ruins it.

Another Big Topic by Isaacson

With his earliest book The Innovators, Isaacson did a great job of framing a part of our sociotechnological lives that everyone should try to understand (computers and the Internet). Now he's done it again with the emerging innovation of gene editing. Food for thought for anyone.

A wonderful thought provoking helicopter ride

A great and enjoyable view of our journey to CRISPR and what may lay beyond.

Starts well but more biography than science

Starts well with a good balance of the science and story but gets to bogged down in the arguments between researchers. Also repeats itself a lot.

Interesting story but..

read in a monotone. Given the significance of this history why have it read like giving map directions?

It can get a little bit boring at times.

This is not to say that it is not a book with many redeeming merits and moments to it. But is a remarkable book for those who are gifted in, students of chemistry, or are gifted with an innate understanding of chemistry and,in particular, genetics. Unfortunately, I am not that well educated in the richer, and deeper corners of chemistry. The book has its moments of intense interest.Unfortunately for me, my background in cheistry and genetics was only enough to turn me into a very fine and highly sought after trauma nurse. Had I read the introduction to the book ,instead os instantly assumig it was about WW2 or Navoho codebreakers on the Japanese front. So my own carelessness taught me a valuable lesson I will continue to treasure, had I taken my time and not rushed in to pick the book without realizing that my background in research chemistry and especially genetic research and the fascination that lies in that field of study. So, by mistake and in my own haste for an absorbing read, I picked out a book which was quite smater than this reader is. But I do reccomend the book to those with the background and interest in these fields of study and research, and are prepared to absorb the knowledge with in its covers.

human nature and capitalism driving sapiens out

Complex matter explained with lucidity. Thoroughly enjoyed the innumerable stories stories woven brilliantly. Many heroes in the story. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to all these on the' Audible'.
