"Whereas the 20th century gave us the ability to perform open heart surgery and organ transplantation, the 21st century will offer us the capability of transplanting animal organs and cells into humans. XENO provides a fascinating review of previous and current scientific and surgical efforts in this field, with excellent discussions of its ethical, legal, and financial implications. It is a readable and balanced book, and will intrigue and stimulate anyone interested in what medicine may be able to offer within the next few years."—Christian N. Barnard, M.D.
