A tiny cluster of our genes holds the key to how we combat disease, how our brains are wired, how attractive we are, even how likely we are to reproduce. In The Compatibility Gene, one of our foremost immunologists tells the remarkable history of these genes' discovery and the unlocking of their secrets. Davis shows how the compatibility gene is radically transforming our knowledge of the way our bodies work - and is having profound consequences for medical research and ethics. Looking to the future, he considers the startling possibilities of what these wondrous discoveries might mean for you and me. 'Who am I? What makes me different from everyone else? Daniel Davis recounts the remarkable science that has answered one version of these questions.' Steven Pinker 'An elegantly written, unexpectedly gripping account of how scientists painstakingly unravelled the way in which a small group of genes crucially influence, and unexpectedly interconnect, various aspects of our lives.' Bill Bryson, Guardian, Books of the Year 'The genes that make you a true individual . . . Davis provides a well-written and easy-to-read account of the sometimes complicated biology behind the crucial genes that affect our lives so profoundly.' Mark Viney, New Scientist 'Davis examines the discovery and significance of the compatibility genes - genes that simply label you as you . . . he weaves a warm biographical thread through his tale of scientific discovery.' Nicola Davis, The Times 'Enlightening . . . extraordinary . . . a fascinating, expertly told story.' Michael Brooks, New Statesman'What scores is his humanity and the wonderful pen-portraits of the many scientists involved in this fast-moving field . . . 5 out of 5 stars.' Henry Gee, BBC Focus
