    Description

    **A 2017 OWL AWARD LONGLIST WINNER**

    Award-winning journalist Bonnie Rochman explores the promise and peril of having children in the age of genetic tests and interventions. This guidebook is for the person who wants a deeper understanding of all the amazing things this technology can do and why you should think twice when considering them.

    This book tells the stories of scientists working to unlock the secrets of the human genome, genetic counselors and spiritual advisers guiding mothers and fathers through life changing choices, and parents grappling with profound revelations. Rochman expertly navigates the expanding array of pre and postnatal tests and poses the question of whether having more tests available is altering our perceptions of disability and changing our conversations about quality of life.
