  • The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

    Thought provoking bioethics and history-of-science that reads easily. Strongly recommended. Fascinating.

  • Amazing read!

    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.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A great read!

    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.

  • A great story of one inspirational family

    This story is moving, horrifying and eye-opening. Everyone should know the life of Henrietta Lacks. She changed the medical community without even knowing. Her family were horribly mistreated and I hope their stories are heard.

    Thanks for your feedback!
