The secrets locked inside your genes – author Sam Kean on Well Read

Best-selling science writer Sam Kean appears tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors program on state public access channel TVW.

Kean’s new book is “The Violinist’s Thumb and Other Lost Tales of Love, War and Genius.” It’s a tour de force of science reporting, highlighting recent research on how much our genetic code determines our destiny. The title comes from the thumbs of Niccolo Paganini, a 19th century violinist whose fantastically flexible wrist and fingers made his fabulous playing possible, but which may have been due to a genetic disorder made called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

“Well Read” airs at 7 and 10 p.m.Tuesdays on TVW. Or you can watch it here:
