    The book The Proteus Effect by Ann Parson is a thrilling documen

    The book The Proteus Effect by Ann Parson is a thrilling documentation of different scientist nation-wide and their findings dealing with Stem Cell Research. Each chapter conveys a different story of how a new Stem Cell scientific finding was originally founded and what it was turned out to help cure. Stem Cell findings are a key in the Science for finding that can eventually become medical cures for diseases and sicknesses of all kinds. Each different report of a Stem Cell finding in this book is nothing short of a miracle, helping one way or another save a life, whether it is a human or an animal. The book overall doesn't portray a story with a climax like a normal book, the book is just many short stories of the same topic (Stem Cells). Wouldn't say it's a must read unless you have too, because the book contains large vocabulary and confusing scientific terminology that made it hard to understand.

    Timely, Informative, and Very Readable

    I have always wanted to know more about this subject but usually have a hard time getting through science books. Ann Parson however had me turning the pages. Proteus Effect is a very timely, informative, and readable book. A must read for everyone.
