So do I.

It seems to be a recurring theme in the book whenever Mukherjee takes a break from explaining the next step in the science parts. So, the structure is very much 1. scientific development followed by 2. social concerns.
I really like this approach. I hope this continues to the end of the book.
Yes, this does sound excellent.

How is he doing on the "non-science" / personal interest contents? I take it from the fact that you're not commenting on it that it's not significant enough to impinge? (I listened to the sample on Audible, and there does seem to be at least some amount, though?)

The amount of personal interest information is negligible! And where it does appear, it is warranted: I.e. most of the personal interest stuff is limited to a story from his own family which runs through the book but doesn't feature heavily (his uncle had some sort of, potentially inherited, mental health issue, which in turn seems to have inspired the author's interest...). Other than this, I have hardly noticed any "fluff".
Sounds great! I suspect the Audible sample is from the very beginning, then (where he first explains his uncle's condition and talks about a visit to the institution where his uncle lives).

Yes, that sounds right. It really doesn't distract from the rest of the book and those interjections are quite short, too.
