    Nice. It's a pretty good book if you like the intersection of science, medicine, culture, ethics, and philosophy. Had to read it for medical school, but my parents and I listened to it on a family road trip and they liked it as well.

    It's super crazy that this chick's been dead for more than 60 years, but her cancer is still out there all over the world, tons and tons of it growing in thousands of labs.
