Having been incredibly busy the past few weeks, I haven't updated the books I have read. Over the next several days I'll update the status of the 52 Books In 52 Weeks project.
Book number 44 was Tears of the Cheetah, by Stephen O'Brien. The fourteen evolutionary tales in this book touch on cheetahs, whales, pandas and other animals, but the real value of this collection is the connection O'Brien makes of animal genetic studies to human health and disease. Often reading like a detective novel as O'Brien sleuths complex genetic questions, I would recommend this book to anyone even remotely interested in genetics.
My next book, The Indoor Cat: How to Understand, Enjoy, and Care for House Cats, was a birthday present from my wife. Will this book help us enrich Neko's indoor life? We'll see.
