Explicacions
msemmag: A fascinating history of an important, relatively unknown part of American science that went willfully overlooked for decades.
Sharkie35 : The way they used her cells was nothing unique, or based on her race. The author glosses over these facts so they could write a book proclaiming the medical profession as racist.

Explicacions
msemmag: One part memoir, one part philosophical grappling with what happened to the author. I would recommend for people who find themselves overwhelmed and not sure what to do when the world is topsy-turvy.

Explicacions
lorax: An error-ridden mess complete with random gratuitous homophobia. Read it for the biographies, but don't believe the science if you didn't already know it (and maybe not even then, if you believe that glass flows.)

Explicacions
leonja: Inspired me to pursue thoughts about developing and implementing literacy programs in other parts of Latin America. Literacy empowers all people of a nation to participate in the electoral/political/representational of government.
