Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot was an audio book I checked out of the library on the recommendation of a fellow swim mom. It was fascinating to learn about this woman who contributed to medical science in such an important way. To learn about the impact her life had on the world and on her family. This was a compelling tale and I would definitely recommend it. I mean, it helps that I love biographies, because the science of it was a bit much for me at times. However, learning about cells, cool stuff. I am reconsidering some of the other titles she gave me, though, as this was at times complex stuff. It is good to get out of your comfort zone, tis true.
