She told The Week magazine about her six best books. One title on the list:
Mutants: On Genetic Variation and the Human Body by Armand Marie LeroiRead about another book on Angier's list.
In this astonishing book, Leroi elucidates the making of the human body by describing cases of the program gone off-kilter: Chang and Eng, the conjoined twins; human cyclops; and Harry Eastlake, whose muscles gradually turned to sheets of bone. Leroi writes with such clarity and nuance that his approach feels inclusive rather than voyeuristic and is, throughout, exhilarating.
