Right Turn: A not-so definitive RM holiday book list

Author: Stacey Johnson, 12/19/14

.

Ah, the holidays. Fodder for journalists and bloggers alike. Last year, I brought you two themed blogs: an idea for a unique Christmas present – by the way, it’s on sale if you order now – and a list of movies and TV shows “about” regenerative medicine (RM) to watch when you have downtime.

In the same vein, this year I have compiled a list of books for your reading pleasure. From protocols to classroom textbooks to fiction, there’s a plethora of stem cell and RM books to choose from. Whether you’re looking to be educated or entertained, I’m sure there’s something for everyone’s taste.

(Please note, this is not an exhaustive list and I have not read all of the books in the link or below. I am providing the list for information only and you should not take this blog as a recommendation to read particular titles.)

A shout out to our friends Joe Sornberger and Paul Knoepfler.

Here are some titles to choose from in the cloning category. Cloning is a particularly popular topic in fiction that readers seem to enjoy over and over and over again.

Happy holidays and happy reading!

What stem cell/RM books do you recommend?

Our regular feature, Right Turn, showcases the “lighter” side of stem cells and regenerative medicine. Every Friday, we will bring you cartoons, photos, videos and other content that may be just as thought provoking as the written submissions that you are used to finding here, but they definitely won’t be blogs.

As always, we welcome your feedback and we also welcome suitable submissions. Be creative! Use the right (!) side of your brain. Make us laugh! Let’s see if we can make this new direction a positive one for all of us. Send your submission to info(at)ccrm.ca.
