The book is VERY technical. A lot of good information on the human genome. However, unless you are really into heavy biology, you may have trouble finishing this read.
I wanted to love this book. It seems like it could be a real find of intellectual porn.
A Life Decoded
This guy just comes off an an egotistical asshole. I don't know him, so I have no idea if it is an accurate portrayal.

But after reading this, I wouldn't even want to talk to him at a cocktail party. Craig Venter. An unremarkable student, he nearly flunked out of high school.
After being drafted into the army, he enlisted in the navy and went to Vietnam, where the life and death struggles he encountered as a medic piqued his interest in science and medicine. After pursuing his advanced degrees, Venter quickly established himself as a brilliant and outspoken scientist. Venter accuses all of the big players—the Human Genome Project's Frances Collins and Nobel laureate James Watson, among many others—of outright dishonesty. Ignore the hyperbole and be skeptical of the accusations, but there's still a terribly depressing story about the politics of big science.

Venter also attempts to contextualize the controversy swirling around the patenting of DNA sequences. Despite the lack of unbiased insight, this is well worth reading for the fascinating perspective it offers on one of the major scientific discoveries of all time.
