Staff Reviews


In this complex yet elegant book, Mukherjee places the cell at the center of the history of medicine and of the possibilities of the future. From the cloth merchant who discovered "animalcules" half by accident, to the unethical 1970's pioneer of in vitro fertilization who slept in a lab with a fish tank and a series of clocks, to the scientists searching for cures today, this book contains a deeply human history of science, at times inspiring, unlikely, and alarming. Mukherjee writes movingly of his own scientific work and brings important questions about the future of cellular treatments and "the new human" to light.
