Thought provoking bioethics and history-of-science that reads easily. Strongly recommended. Skloot humanizes medical terminology and brings light to the story of a woman who has touched more lives than most realize.
This book is a sobering reminder that the scientific community has standards for a reason and that our biological rights are just as important as any other civil right.
Another book I read as a book club choice and I truly enjoyed it while at the same time felt pity for Henrietta and her family. Even though technically nothing was done wrong, I think medical science owes her family so much more.
A great read.

The book is very informative about cell research; it is evident the author has done her homework. The biomedical ethics of this issue are still being resolved, and the material in the book will cause one to think about the situation. The author also portrays the human perspective of cell research in a way not previously shown.
Recommended reading. Great book. So interesting to read non-fiction that is so well written. Very interesting story.
