If you only read one non-fiction book this year...

I'd highly recommend The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

Wow. What a story. I learned so much from this book. Will do proper review on the weekend - will have lots of quotes!

Thank you Rebecca Skloot for writing this book. THANK YOU to Henrietta Lacks for her contribution to science (and our health) and her family for letting Rebecca wrote this book!

  3. I've heard a lot of good things about this one. Having a science background I should read it soon. I wonder if there's a similiar background for the source of bacitracin -- supposedly it was isolated from a girl named Tracy.
