From the Foreword by Candy Cooley:
What a delight it is ... to read a book which takes complex scientific concepts and ensures they are understandable by all.

With activities and answers, reflection points and a glossary, this interactive textbook supports the Fit for Practice in the Genetics Era competence framework, offering an introduction to the theory of genetics and then using common genetic conditions/disorders as case studies to help students apply theory to practice and examine the service user experience.

Review:

Karen Vipond's book takes the difficult science of genetics and makes it accessible and practical within today's clinical practice.
The ten chapters, taking you from basic cell biology to communicating genetic information, have a range of activities and case studies to make the learning interactive and interesting and each chapter has a summary for quick revision.
As genetics and genomics are becoming core knowledge for health care practitioners they are now being included across curricula and this is an excellent text to support the student. The book will also be helpful reading for those educators who are currently ensuring this rapidly-advancing topic is part of their teaching across pre- and post-registration. --National Genetics Education and Development Centre blog, July 2013
