The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot A compelling, informative, and surprisingly tear-inducing biography that is part science lesson, part social history, part medical mystery and all heartfelt tribute to an unknown and unwitting heroine in the history of medicine.Skloot's passion for the subject and dedication to her ideals carry this story far beyond the attempts of her predecessors to fill in the details of a tragico-hopeful story of our country's relationship to its poor and minority people. Everyone should read this book.
