This excellent up-to-date book discusses the basics of mapping and finding and sequencing the gene that's responsible for a human genetic disorder. It focuses in on the specifics of the molecular genetics of cancer, muscle disorders, neurological disorders, and of mitochondrial disorders. I was disappointed that it didn't include more on blood disorders, though. I use this as a reference when I hear of a genetic disorder and I want a detailed description.
