I have connections with three books within the DNA field, all of which I can recommend.
I have been thanked in the front matter of the following books:
Y: The Descent of Men, by Professor Steve Jones, 2003 (978-0349113890)
Trace Your Roots with DNA: Using Genetic Tests to Explore Your Family Tree, by Ann Turner & Megan Smolenyak, 2004 (978-1594860065)
I wrote the Foreward for Debbie Kennett's Family History: DNA And Social Networking, published October 2011, which is the only book on the topic of DNA currently in print written from a UK perspective.
