really liked it
bookshelves: non-fic, recommended-by-friend-patron
Read from January 20 to 24, 2012

Very "readable" as far as non-fiction goes. Some of the biology was a little deep for me, but I can imagine that it would be very hard to "dumb-down" the technical aspects that are important to the book. I learned a lot about things that I didn't necessarily want to know about like experiments performed on the mentally ill & uneducated/poor, before the human rights laws that we take for granted today.
