Living with our genes : why they matter more than you think by Dean H Hamer ( Book )
21 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The nature-nurture controversy has never been more hotly debated. Scientists send shock waves through the culture whenever their new theories of what is biologically inherited - as opposed to socially learned - confront our old ideas about the self. Nowhere are these ideas more arduously tested than in the labs of molecular geneticist Dean Hamer, whose discoveries of specific genes linked to behavioral traits - such as anxiety, thrill-seeking, and homosexuality - prove without a doubt that we are in large part hardwired to behave the way we do. Hamer is one of a small group of researchers mapping the human personality. Hamer shows how much of our behavior is heavily influenced by genes, including how much we eat and how much we weigh, how we think, how much we drink, use drugs, and have sex. He also sheds light on some of the most compelling and vexing aspects of personality, such as shyness, aggression, depression, and intelligence. Each chapter draws on the most cutting-edge research available and provides the reader with a blueprint for understanding himself and his family. Then Hamer closes the book with a chilling scenario that imagines the inner life of a genetically cloned scientist's son
The science of desire : the search for the gay gene and the biology of behavior by Dean H Hamer ( Book )
9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hamer presents an account of his research into sexual orientation. The book follows his ideas about genetic markers for homosexuality to survey results suggesting that the x-chromosome carries a marker for male homosexuality and speculation on the evolutionary and physiological mechanisms involved. Hamer's research included an exploration of the development of homosexual behavior, family histories, and, finally, statistical and molecular analysis

Living with Our Genes The Groundbreaking Book About the Science of Personality, Behavior, and Genetic Destiny by Dean H Hamer ( )
2 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A lucid, thought-provoking account of the case for 'nature' as a determinant of personality." 'Peter D. Kramer, Author of Listening to Prozac and Should You Leave' Nowhere is the nature-nuture controversy being more arduously tested than in the labs of world-renowned molecular scientist Dean Hamer, whose cutting-edge research has indisputably linked specific genes to behavioral traits, such as anxiety, thrill-seeking, and homosexuality. The culmination of that research os this provocative book, Living with Our Genes. In it, Dr. Hamer reveals that much of our behavior'how much we eat and weigh, whether we drink or use drugs, how often we have sex'is heavily influenced by genes. His findings help explain why one brother becomes a Wall Street trader, while his sibling remains content as a librarian, or why some people like to bungee-jump, while others prefer Scrabble. Dr. Hamer also sheds light on some of the most compelling and vexing aspects of personality, such as shyness, aggression, depression, and intelligence. In the tradition of the bestselling book Listening to Prozac, Living with Our Genes is the first comprehensive investigation of the crucial link between our DNA and our behavior. "Compulsive reading, reminiscent of Jared Diamond, froma scientsit who knows his stuff and communicates it well." 'Kirkus Reviews "A pioneer in the field of molecular psychology, Hamer is exploring the role genes play in governing the very core of our individuality. Accessible...provocative." 'Time "Absolutely terrific! I couldn't put it down." 'Professor Robert Plomin, Social, Genetic & Developmental Psychiatry Research Center, Institute of Psychiatry
