As a person with at least a fairly strong faith in both God and science, I found this book incredibly disappointing. The title and the author's role as head of the human genome project led me to believe this would be focused on the beauty within DNA. That's not what this is. It's basically just a good commentary on the culture war between the two sides -- not anything that will delve any deeper who aren't on one side or the other. If you're religious and troubled by science, or rationalistic and troubled by pangs of the supernatural, this would be a great book for you. Even if you' re an atheist, it should at least convince you that not all of us on the other side are dimwits.
If you're comfortable with both, there's a little interesting, but not much outside of the appendix on bioethics.
