A four book week! Finally, after months of "meaning to" I have read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Wow.
It's science and the history of cell culture, but it's so much more. It's also a biography and even a little bit of an autobiography. And all of it beautifully written and thoughtfully detailed.
I have never read a book that induced me to donate to a charity. This one did.
