'Life as we Made It' by Beth Shapiro

I cannot remember a book that was more stuffed with information and ideas.
EXtinction. saving the bison, pollution of all kinds, lots on genetic
engineering and CRiSPR and twins born in China, and hornless cattle - the
past, present and future, Covid and tons more.  Elegant and graceful

Got lost in some biochemistry for a few pages, but easily understood the
rest.  Every topic she deals with she does so in depth (occasionally more
than you might want!).  Lots of focus on ethics and controversies.

Cannot recommend highly enough  A+
