Advance praise: 'What did genetics ever do for educators and their students? Historically, widespread misconceptions and misunderstandings have probably often resulted in more harm than good. However, rapid advances in the field now offer much promise (and some potential pitfalls) for future educational practice. This encyclopedic text is an essential read for anyone who wants to understand the promise of genetics for education, the possible policy implications, and the ethical and moral dilemmas that may result.' Julian Elliott, Durham University
