    Received as a gift in 2008, the book is a light read with its serious moments. Writing a book about injustice, I repeatedly reference the electrical shocking experiment that Boesche describes starting on Page 211. Not only does the book describe the bizarre. It also reveals, through at least this experiment, reasons why we should do more than read. It should lead to the message that sometimes the results of such science should also challenge us to change our own complacent, mindless characters, start to engage in the world around us and challenge the people in white lab coats everywhere.

    Takes research to a whole new level

    This book is not for the squemish. I have read about half of the book and it is gory. So far there has been electrocution, attaching new heads to bodies among other gruesome experiments. Some of the experiments are more straight forward. I have not got to the experiment about the elephants on acid yet. There has been an interesting experiment on elephant's memory. All in all it is a well researched book and is a good read for mature audiences. Definitly not for children.
