Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. Born a poor black tobacco farmer, her cancer cells – taken without her knowledge – became a multimillion-dollar industry and one of the most important tools in medicine. Yet Henrietta’s family did not learn of her ‘immortality’ until more than twenty years after her death, with devastating consequences … Rebecca Skloot’s fascinating account is the story of the life, and afterlife, of one woman who changed the medical world forever.
Mit diesem überaus faszinierenden Buch hat sich Rebecca Skloot als Autorin von Sachbüchern mit medizinischem Hintergrund ganz nach vorne gebracht. “The author has a knack for explaining a fairly involved and dry science to the average reader in such a way to make it understandable. She also treats the family with respect as well as offers understanding to the scientific community (and that must have been difficult to do at times).” (Leser) (5.615 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 450 Seiten noch günstig?
