All my life I have groaned inside and sometimes outside whenever someone spoke about the miracle of giving birth How miraculous is it I would ask cynically and overly confident of my cleverness if flies and jellyfish do it In fact it s only one of the most basic functions living organisms perform along with eating and pooping After reading this book however and learning about so many things that can happen during gestation that will render the fetus unviable I am truly amazed first that organisms are born with such basic similarities to other members of their species and second that they are born at all I must admit that reproduction is indeed miraculous Don t get me wrong my horror at pregnancy has not lessened especially after reading about the coat of hair fetuses grow at five months and then shed a few weeks later And I thought defecating while trying to push the fetus out was horrifyingRead Wild Man Creek (Virgin River, reading this book however and learning about so many things that can happen during gestation that will Homewrecker reproduction is indeed miraculous Don t get me wrong my horror at pregnancy has not lessened especially after Make your own model forts & castles reading about the coat of hair fetuses grow at five months and then shed a few weeks later And I thought defecating while trying to push the fetus out was horrifyingRead

    i've now read this book twice and all i can say is that leroi has a rare skill; he is able to present dense scientific facts in a way that borders on poetic his fascination with genetics is apparent in the loving detail with which he writes i particularly loved the way he started each section with a tale from the annals o

    Okay this ended up being a long review Judging by the title I was afraid the contents were going to be wildly insensitive and was glad to find that wasn’t the case Throughout the book Leroi points out the absurdity in how humans throughout history have felt the need and right to categorize and label one another based on superficial appearance This book is filled with historical perspective that is interesting to read about Espe
