Fine, clean stated first printing with the full number line including the 1, bound in sharp red boards with just a push at spine-foot, the fine photographic dust jacket protected in a new, clear Brodart cover. Rebecca Skloot researched this astonishing true story for several years. This long and in many ways painful effort culminated in this revelatory book. Henrietta Lacks and her family never knew that her cancer cells were harvested, that they became immortal, and that science and medical study were forever changed by this discovery and the massive replication of her cells. Skloot came to know this impoverished family well during her long research. This is a story of family, of science, of exploitation and of the resulting medical revolution that generated a multimillion-dollar industry. It is a riveting and unforgettable read.
