This book was unbelievably good. HeLa cells were the first known human cells to never die -- they are still cultivated and grown today and used for countless experiments. It's a historical account of HeLa cells, the woman from whom the cells were taken, and their contribution to biology, disease treatment and more. I can't recommend this book strongly enough.
