left this comment on the other blog, so in case you dont check that one...

stumbled across the review and it led me here.
i'm going to check out the book when it comes out in the uk.
I can't help thinking the whole epigenetics thing is better explained by
certain aspects of buddhism, (esho funi, oneness of self and environment etc)in fact I often have a laugh at so called 'new' scientific breakthroughs
that a simply other ways of saying stuff that was figured out hundreds of years ago.
I'm not a scientist, by the way, just interested.
looking forward to reading, cheers.
