Mom Genes: Inside the New Science of Our Ancient Maternal Instinct by Abigail Tucker

| /

Everyone knows how babies are made, but scientists are only just beginning to understand the making of a mother. Mom Genes reveals the hard science behind our tenderest maternal impulses, tackling questions such as why mothers are destined to mimic their own moms (or not), how maternal aggression makes females the world’s most formidable creatures, and how a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic can make or break a mom.
