A complex yet captivating exploration of the difficult journey to medical progress.
By Don C. Reed ‧ RELEASE DATE: April 25, 2023
Reed’s work provides an insightful look into the complexities of progress in the fields of health care and science. He outlines the various obstacles that stem cell research has faced, such as religious objections and voter suppression, and the importance of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
His personal story of his son’s paralysis and the need for stem cell research to find a cure is particularly moving. Reed’s efforts to get Proposition 14 on the ballot and passed, as well as his dedication to writing about stem cell research, are inspiring. He uses analogies to make the subject matter more accessible, such as the “friendly gorilla” which symbolizes the power of the citizens’ initiative. This book is an invaluable resource for anyone wanting to understand the relationship between science and politics.Check on Amazon Check on Walmart Check on Barnes and Noble
