    1. This book is a bit dated, but still an excellent primer on stem cell research and the battle against it.It covers at a layperson level the basics of stem cells—what they are, where they come from and what is being done with them. You'll get the essential scientific terms and distinctions that must be understood to discuss the topic, but it's not dry science. Sections read like dramas—e.g. Bernie Siegel's battle against the 2003 UN treaty (by Costa Rica) to ban all cloning, therapeutic or oth [...]

    2. As a Type I Diabetic I am very interested in stem cell research, as this research holds the key to cring diabetes. This book provided me with great accessable and in-depth knowledge about the political, moral, and scientific issues related to stem cell research. This book made me even more passionate about stem cell research and better able to discuss with other people the pros and cons of such resaerch.

    3. Very informative book (if a bit biased) on stem cells and the current debate in the US about whether or not to allow research on it.

    4. This is nothing groundbreaking but Harold does nicely and eloquently advance several strong arguments in support of stem cell research without being repetitive. Fairly low-tech and easy to understand, this book is a solid primer into a much-needed debate. There is not, as the title would suggest, a wealth of "inside stories"; most of the information presented here is already public knowledge.
