What did you learn from reading The Immortal Life? What surprised you the most? What disturbed you the most?


Matt I'm not sure how much I learned but it was a good human interest story, with nerdy science that I like. I was suprised that the lack of medical privacy afforded Ms. Lacks could still happen today, dispite HIPPA and other legislation. And I am still a little distrubed at the lack of empathy in the medical profession, even though I sure I a similar coolness when "feelings" and "emotions" intrude on engineering sensibilities.
