I had high hopes for this book but it didn't live up to its hype. So much of the information was repetitive, especially the parts about the family. She didn't really have much material to work with on the Lacks' history so she milked it. I liked the scientific information but tired of the Lacks' ranting about suing Johns Hopkins for "their share" of the profits of the cells.
