Angela Saini, author of Inferior and Superior: The Return of Race Science Popular science master Brian Clegg’s new book is an entertaining tour through the science of what makes you you.

It starts with the present-day reader and follows a number of trails to discover their origins: how the atoms in your body were created and how they got to you in space and time, the sources of things you consume, how the living cells of your body developed, where your massive brain and consciousness originated, how human beings evolved and, ultimately, what your personal genetic history reveals.
