"In Remaking Eden, Lee Silver gives us a panoramic view of molecular genetics, sexual reproduction, in vitro fertilization, and cloning. His book is an outstanding achievement. Silver addresses the uninitiated with clear writing and straightforward explanations of complex phenomena, but experts, especially ethicists and policy makers, will also profit from reading this book. Any physician should find this book remarkable. Silver analyzes the issues soberly, often with provocative examples. Some of his cases are hypothetical; others are drawn from real life. . . the imperative is to use our knowledge with the compassion advocated by Lee Silver. . .What we must understand is that Wilmut's feat [the cloning of Dolly] revealed, rather than broke, the laws of nature. The remarkable potential of this revelation is a cause for hope, not despair."   
Published in 16 languages, Remaking Eden demystifies the science and technology of genetics and reproduction.
