Behavioural geneticist Robert Plomin about his book “Blueprint: How DNA Makes Us Who We Are,” in which he argues that it’s not only height and weight and skin colour that are heritable, but intelligence, TV-watching habits and the likelihood of getting divorced. Also discusses the risks of publishing the book, race and eugenics, and implications for the future of our data and medical care.
