Many of the unique characteristics that make each of us an individual can be traced back to our genes. But can our genes really predict our destiny? And if so, can that destiny be altered? The genetic age has opened up a huge realm of possibilities. How to Build a Human explores some of the latest discoveries in genetic science and the implications of this new knowledge for humanity.
