  1. Reviewer from NetGalley

    This is amazing book covering not only stem cells, but how this treatment can change the course of medicine for the future. The author talks about how so many diseases and illnesses are presently incurable, but that stem cells are the face of the future and could cure these, leading to a better society. I loved how the author broke down the science behind stem cells; he took the reader through it step by step, explaining what they are, where they are found, why and how they are useful and more. He has a chapter dedicated to each illness or disease that stem cells could be useful for and goes into great detail about the benefits of stem cells. This is such a hot button and polarizing topic, but I think Mike Chan breaks it down so it is understandable to the general public and he helps us to realize why stem cells are so important and why we should be giving them a chance when it comes to medicine and curing illness and disease. I truly think this is a book that not only those in the medical community should read, but the general public as well.
