Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. In this award-winning Audible Studios production, Trevor Noah tells his wild coming-of-age tale during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa. Well researched and written. Written so well and I would listen to any non fiction narrated by Cassandra Campbell, she is my all time favorite. A captivating story that has me hooked from the very beginning.

Last time I was there, there was an addition to the binder of forms I needed to review: a disclosure that my blood could be used for research, and if I didn't agree to that, I shouldn't donate. It is also a critical exploration of the interplay between science, race, class, and ethics in the United States. Ann Dowd, At some points in the story, she has the cool tone of an investigative reporter, duly noting the gruesome evidence of patient mistreatment at the Hospital for the Negro Insane in the 1950s or the horrors of medical malpractice in the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. Makes me want to do my own research into African Americans as involuntary test subjects, etc. The author sure brings up some ethical issues that gets you thinking.
Donec scelerisque, urna id tincidunt ultrices, nisi nisl lacinia mi, at pellentesque enim mi eu felis. Incredibly engaging and given that this history has so much to do with all humans alive today; also for anyone we know who has not died from a curable infection or certain cancers and that fewer and fewer people die from diseases that are now almost eradicated in many parts of the world, suffering and death are at an all time low due to this amazing woman's cells. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bombs effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions.
Bryan Stevenson, Narrated by: Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system.
She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine: The first “immortal” human cells grown in culture, which are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. Over the decade it took to uncover this story, Rebecca became enmeshed in the lives of the Lacks family—especially Henrietta’s daughter Deborah. For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast.
Bryan Stevenson. Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit.

The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. You get to know Henrietta's extended family, and to view her life and unintended contribution to science as they do.Overall, the book felt like an extended episode of This American Life, in that it didn’t explore (or resolve) any issue in great depth, but was engagingly put together and taught me a little about a lot of different subjects.
Eventually, the children landed in the home of their paternal grandparents, whose tough-love attitudes quickly resulted in conflicts.

Nam id enim sapien. Of course, they understand and care about the basic things that most Americans do, but their views are colored by a history and identity that, I, a well-educated, middle-class white northerner, simply haven't lived in.

and others, Written by: ], ©2010 Rebecca Skloot (P)2010 Random House, "One of the most graceful and moving nonfiction books I’ve read in a very long time…, "Writing with a novelist's artistry, a biologist's expertise, and the zeal of an investigative reporter, Skloot tells a truly astonishing story of racism and poverty, science and conscience, spirituality and family driven by a galvanizing inquiry into the sanctity of the body and the very nature of the life force." It's hard to imagine that so much scientific research and advancement in medicine could come from the cells of one person. This is one of the most compelling books I have ever read -well-written, with subject matter unbelievable and staggering in its implications for medicine. Donec in tortor in lectus iaculis vulputate. I cannot say enough good things about this book. Jot Davies,
I thought the weaving of the different characters was expertly done, loved the audible interview with the author at the end. How do the stresses of medical life - from paperwork to grueling hours to lawsuits to facing death - affect the medical care that doctors can offer their patients?
The family's story is very moving.
Skloot avoids a sociological analysis of the Lacks family, which is good - that would have made them a 'study', not real people.
Finally, it's a story of a family struggling to find emotional and spiritual closure after the years following the death of their mother, who continues in a strange and somewhat mystifying afterlife.If the book had simply been about science and ethical questions pertaining to the cells of Henrietta Lacks, I might not have found it more than mildly interesting, but the human element gives the story many more dimensions.
I was expecting the science story to be intriguing, and it is, but the interweaving of the Lacks family members into the fabric of the narrative is masterful.
