Am I My Genes?

Confronting Fate and Family Secrets in the Age of Genetic Testing

Robert L. Klitzman, M.D.

  • Explores the experiences of individuals confronting genetic disease, and the full impact of this predicament on their lives - from issues of identity and fate, to those of reproductive choices.
  • Unlike prior studies in academic articles that have examined testing, disclosure, or reproduction separately, this book looks at these intertwined elements together.
  • Draws from in-depth interviews with individuals confronting genetic testing issues, to explore these realms as they arise in daily life.
