I really loved that the author incorporated the story of Henrietta as well as the history of her cells and genetics.
This is definitely a book I will listen to again!
I don't usually choose to listen to non fiction, but this is a great story with a lot of history. The story was very personal and interesting. I really liked the narrator's voice and the flow of the story.
Important read especially for those unfamiliar with the world of bioethics. Worth checking it out.
This book is better than a novel and WAY better than a science book. I'm both a better human and more sensitive, intelligent person for having listened to it. Thank you to the author, narrator, and of course, the Lacks family.
A very important work on so many crucial issues of humanity and science. A brilliant listening experience. I hadn't expected this book to enthrall me as it did
Congratulations and thanks to Rebecca Skloot
Although I found the story heart drenching hearing of all this families turmoil, I think the HELA project may have been one of the greatest contributions to humanity. Despite the fact that the family was robbed of the riches that came with the scientific development, the royalty that comes with being an ancestor of Henrietta Lacks is simply priceless. This most definitely a must read for all.
