I don't think there is a "best" book for genetics. I would say find the most advanced book that you can actually understand.

head to a college bookstore and see if you can find the introductory genetics textbook. Usually, they start simple and get into the more in depth topics. But again, there is always more to learn, so keep reading as you gain in understanding...

Yep...

The problem isn't that it's very technical. The problem is that it's very technical and written in British. I have to reread sections sometimes just to understand the British terminology.

Yes it is. Also, spellings differ very much, which can make it confusing if you're not familiar with the terms in the first place.

Grey's is a great read! For further odd spellings and prolonged reading sessions try William Blackstone's Commentary on English Law. Quite interesting, but the s's and f's look pretty close in the original print.... argh

Hahaha, I'll stick with one difficult book at a time.

It is nice to work in a cancer center. The things I don't understand, I can just ask one of the nurses :)

Interesting, nonetheleast :) I can't say much because of the confientiality laws, but I CAN say that all the patients are SO nice and outgoing. If you met them on the street, you could not tell that they were sick in any way.
