What reading would IdeaFestival speaker Dr. Moira Gunn recommend?

260-2 One of the more popular series on IFblog is the annual listing of books recommended by speakers at the IdeaFesival, many of whom are authors themselves. It's that time again.

To kick things off, we'll start this year NPR TechNation host Dr. Moira Gunn, who'll be talking about The New Genomics and the Nature of being Human. Not content to suggest one, she recommended six!

Please take the feed for IFblog or come back regularly for more IdeaFestival speaker-recommended books. I'll drop them into blog posts over the next several weeks.
