A must read for anyone in the medical field. The 'HeLa' cells we all learned about now have a person behind the cells. Enthralling history of medicine at the 'start-up' phase- building their own labs, thinking 'outside the box' for physicians. Minorities were not respected as people, but as experimental objects. I could not put this book down- and I'm thankful that medicine has progressed from the 'colored wards.'
