Copeland discusses how, with more than 37 million people tested, virtually all Americans are affected by DNA testing in some way, and millions have been impacted by significant revelations in their immediate families. The Wall Street Journal calls Copeland's book “a fascinating account of lives dramatically affected by genetic sleuthing.”
