it was amazing

Can't wait to recommend this book to my bookclub. It will make for a fabulous discussion. This book can satisfy several audiences on several different levels. The technical information about the science of cells is fascinating. The ethical questions raised by the unauthorized use of someone's cells are important to ask and ponder. But most fascinating is the story of the Lacks family. Skloot's exhaustive research spanned a decade and she tells a story that is honest, heart wrenching and provocative.

Lesley Ordered it on amazon.com just waiting for it to come in-sounds like an excellent choice for discussion.
