When you look into a microscope at a cell you will see a large circle near the center of the cell. This is the nucleus and holds the genetic material, or, chromosomes. Chromosomes are made of long strands of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and, therefore genes. Humans have 46 chromosomes, the focus of study in this book. First, the authors explore chromosomal morphology, then how they are reproduced (during cell division), and the normal and abnormal condition of chromosomes.

These diseases impact the lives of many people, directly for those diagnosed and indirectly for the friends and families of those diagnosed. So many distinct forms of cancer with multiple unique diagnostic tools and approaches to treatment can be overwhelming for those diagnosed and those supporting them.

Virginia Murphy-Berman

We all want to be happy. But sometimes the harder we search for happiness, the more elusive it becomes. To increase our happiness, experts advise us to do things such as improve our self-esteem or get out of our comfort zones, etc., but making such major and amorphous changes can be daunting. In this book, you will not be advised to alter the way you are in any major or basic sense. Rather, you will learn that by choosing to make subtle recalibrations in your focus and in what you bring to your attention, you can powerfully impact how you view yourself and your life.
