PLEASE NOTE: This is a key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book. Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Rebecca Skloot's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section. PREVIEW: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a creative non-fiction book that explores the source of HeLa, the most commonly used human cell line in the world. In order to bring its origin to light, Rebecca Skloot weaves together several narrative threads. One is primarily focused on Henrietta Lacks, the woman who, without her knowledge, became central to 20th century biomedical research. Another is the birth of modern biomedical research itself, and its roots in the American eugenics movement. Finally, there is the impact of this research, both of the Lacks Family and on society at large. Skloot divides the book into 3 parts: Life, Death, and Immortality, which intertwines a complicated cast of characters and jumps between dramatized historical anecdotes, Skloot's first-person detective work, and a layman's explanations of complicated matters of modern cell biology and medical ethics.

Book Description :

With an introduction by author of The Tidal Zone, Sarah Moss Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. Born a poor black tobacco farmer, her cancer cells – taken without her knowledge – became a multimillion-dollar industry and one of the most important tools in medicine. Yet Henrietta’s family did not learn of her ‘immortality’ until more than twenty years after her death, with devastating consequences . . . Rebecca Skloot’s fascinating account is the story of the life, and afterlife, of one woman who changed the medical world for ever. Balancing the beauty and drama of scientific discovery with dark questions about who owns the stuff our bodies are made of, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is an extraordinary journey in search of the soul and story of a real woman, whose cells live on today in all four corners of the world. Now a HBO film starring Oprah Winfrey and Rose Byrne.

Book Description :

What books do colleges and universities assign as common reading? What themes do the books contain? Are they old books or recent ones? What kinds of colleges and universities have common reading programs? What does a typical common reading program look like? What does all this tell us about the state of American higher education today? To find out, the author and her colleagues examined books assigned by 245 colleges and universities for the academic year 2011-2012. They found that they are, on the whole, recent, personal, race-focused, and unchallenging. Their main findings are: (1) Recent books trump the classics. Almost 90 percent of colleges chose books published since January 2000, and all but two selected books published since January 1972; (2) Only two books--one by Mark Twain and one by Aldous Huxley--are "classics" even in a broad sense; (3) "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" (2010) by Rebecca Skloot is by far the most popular book; and (4) Of the 100 colleges that selected books with a racial or ethnic theme, 60 chose books that focused on African Americans. Among the ways this year differs from last: more colleges assigned books with a Native American theme, fewer colleges assigned books about the Islamic World, and fewer colleges assigned classics. Colleges continue to ignore the best books when they make their selections for common reading. One likely reason for this is that Americans have eroded the distinction between high and low culture. Author Joseph Epstein writes in a recent "Wall Street Journal" book review that this distinction "started to break down once the works of contemporary authors began to be taught in universities." Its breakdown progressed with the rise of multiculturalism and the study of popular culture. The author encourages colleges to continue and to improve their common reading programs. She offers 11 recommendations to colleges for choosing better books and making the most of the common reading experience. She also offer a list of books she recommends for common reading. Appended are: (1) Key and Totals; (2) By Author; (3) By Institution Name; (4) By Institution Type; (5) Nationally Ranked Institutions (Listed by U.S. News & World Report); (6) Books Assigned at Multiple Institutions; and (7) Recommended Books for College Common Reading.

Book Description :

An award-winning journalist reveals a little-known and shameful episode in American history, when an African man was used as a zoo exhibit—a shocking story of racial prejudice, science, and tragedy in the early years of the twentieth century. Ota Benga, a young Congolese man, was featured as an exhibit at the St. Louis World's Fair. Two years later, in 1906, the Bronx Zoo displayed him in its Monkey House, caging the slight 103-pound, four-foot eleven-inch man with an orangutan. The attraction became an international sensation, drawing thousands of New Yorkers and commanding headlines from across the nation and Europe. Spectacle explores the circumstances of Ota Benga's captivity, the international controversy it inspired, and his efforts to adjust to his life in America. It also uncovers, decades later, the flagrant deception that allowed the man most responsible for Ota's exploitation to be hailed as his friend and savior, while those who truly fought for Ota's freedom have been banished to the shadows of history. Using primary historical documents, Pam-ela Newkirk traces Ota's tragic path, from Africa to St. Louis to New York and finally to Lynchburg, Virginia, where he lived out the remainder of his short life. Illuminating this unfathomable series of events, Spectacle simultaneously charts the evolution of science, elite men and institutions, and racial ideologies. It also explores New York City during the early years of the twentieth century, a racially fraught era that led to a rising tide of political disenfranchisement and social scorn for African Americans. Shocking and compelling, Spectacle is a masterful work of social history that raises difficult questions about racial prejudice and discrimination that continue to haunt us today.

Book Description :

"Highly readable and informative, this critical series of vignettes illustrates a long history of the corruption of science by folk beliefs, careerism, and sociopolitical agendas. Marks repeatedly brings home the message that we should challenge scientists, especially molecular geneticists, before we accept their results and give millions of dollars in public and private funds toward their enterprises."--Russell Tuttle, The University of Chicago "Jonathan Marks has produced a personal and compelling story of how science works. His involvement in scientific endeavor in human biology and evolution over the past three decades and his keen sense of the workings of science make this book a must read for both scientists and lay readers. In this sense, the lay reader will learn how scientists should and shouldn't think and some scientists who read this book will come away thinking they are truly not scientists nor would they want to be."--Rob DeSalle, American Museum of Natural History "Jonathan Marks's Why I Am Not a Scientist provides food for thought, and as expected, it's digestible. In unusually broad perspective, this anthropology of knowledge considers science and race and racism, gender, fraud, misconduct and creationism in a way that makes one proud to be called a scientist."--George J. Armelagos, Emory University

Book Description :

Assigning a summer reading to entering freshmen is a growing trend at hundreds of American colleges and universities. Colleges typically pick one book and ask students to read it outside their courses. Many invite the author to help kick off the year by speaking on campus at convocation. Most colleges see the key purpose of a common reading program as an opportunity to build community on campus. Many also declare that common reading is important because it sets academic expectations, begins conversations, inspires social activism, and encourages critical thinking. This years' annual "Beach Books" reports is the most comprehensive and the only one to categorize the books according to their main subjects and track trends in genres, publication dates, and additional themes. The study for the academic year 2013-2014 covers 341 colleges and universities and the 231 books they assigned. The authors present the results of their study in terms of findings, facts, and gaps. Their findings: (1) Common reading programs are becoming more popular; (2) The list of readings continues to be dominated by recent, trendy, and intellectually unchallenging books; (3) The assigned books frequently emphasize progressive political themes, and the top subject category is multiculturalism; (4) Colleges increasingly see their common reading as exercises in community-building more than student preparation for academic life; and (5) A common reading "industry" is emerging, with publishers, authors, and colleges seeking to advance a particular kind of book. The facts: (1) Author speaking: Of the 341 colleges in our study, 231 (68 percent) brought the author to speak on campus. Having the author speak is seen as a priority for common reading programs; (2) Rationales: 77 percent of colleges said that the purpose of their common reading programs was to foster "community," or create "common" or "shared" experiences among those on and near the campus; (3) Recent: More than half of common reading assignments (51 percent) were published between 2010 and 2013, and only five books were from before 1900; (4) Non-fiction: 72 percent of assignments were memoirs, biographies, essays, and other non-fiction; and (5) Turnover: 82 percent of this year's titles are different from last year's. Some books that were popular a few years ago are now waning or have disappeared. Many new books, some published as recently as the year in which they were assigned, are being introduced. The gaps: (1) Classics: Only four colleges assigned works that could be considered classics. Those were Melville's short story "Bartleby, the Scrivener" (LeMoyne College), a compilation of Shakespeare's works (Indiana University, South Bend), the book of Job from the Bible (St. Michael's College), and Edgar Allen Poe's Great Tales and Poems (University of Wisconsin, Parkside). Other than these exceptions, the hundreds of common reading programs across the country ignored books of lasting merit. Dickens, Dostoevsky, Austen, and Hemingway were not to be found. There was no trace of Twain, Tolstoy, Bront,͡ Wilde, Hawthorne, Douglass, or Steinbeck. No "To Kill a Mockingbird," "The Great Gatsby," "The Count of Monte Cristo," or even "Catcher in the Rye"; (2) Fiction: Only 28 percent of common reading assignments were fictional. While fiction isn't going away in the larger scheme of contemporary reading, colleges are predisposed against it because they want to show students socially-engaged authors who are active in the real world; (3) Modern literature: Even in confining themselves to living authors, colleges neglect some of the best ones, such as Marilynne Robinson, Thomas Pynchon, Wendell Berry, Donna Tart, Tom Wolfe, and Don DeLillo; (4) History: Other than a "media package" on the civil rights movement assigned by the University of Alabama, Birmingham, no colleges assigned any works of history; and (5) Diversity: There is essentially a common reading genre--inspiring stories, apocalyptic visions, self-assigned projects, identity crises, advice manuals, and curious trends in human behavior--this is the stuff of common reading, and rarely do colleges deviate from these norms. The most-assigned book, for the third year in a row, is "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." While there were fewer classic books assigned in 2013-2014 than the year before, there were more "honorable mentions," books that treat academic subjects (i.e. physics, economics, poetry, philosophy) with depth and detail, as well as others that take an uncharacteristically hopeful view of immigration, hard work, or life's challenges. The authors note that college administrators and outside observers have been asking questions as to the value of campus common reading programs and students also have doubts about the value of common reading programs. While they recognize the potential of the programs to build intellectual community, students are often disappointed to be given an unchallenging book, or a book ostensibly chosen to fulfill a diversity obligation. The study offers 12 recommendations to colleges for choosing better books and making the most of the common reading experience. Appended are: (1) Key and Totals; (2) Books Chosen as Common Reading 2013-2014: Full List by Institution Name; (3) Titles by Subject Category; (4) By Institution Type; (5) Beach Books in Practice: "The View From My Island"; (6) Common Reading Programs: "Beginning The Process"; (7) Common Reading Books and a Measure of Student Reaction to Them; (8) "Caught with Gay Books: South Carolina Punishes Colleges for Freshman Reading Choices"; and (9) "Williams Reads' Book Selection was a Flop."
