Product Description


‘The stem cell discoveries made by Till and McCulloch are milestone moments in medical research. That more Canadians don’t know about Jim and ‘Bun’ and celebrate their achievements remains a huge oversight. Theirs is an amazing story, and Joe Sornberger, who makes complicated science compellingly readable, tells it wonderfully well.’ (Alain Beaudet, President of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research)

This is a book about medical science written to be clear and understandable by the average person. It is very successful at opening up the fascinating story of two researchers discovering stem cells and exploring how they work.

I have read a lot of books on the subject-- this is one of the very best. Also Oct. 15 2014
By Don C. Reed - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having spent 20 years raising funds for stem cell researchers, I have read a lot of books on the subject-- this is one of the very best. Also, for anyone wanting to know about the early years of stem cell research, which Canada hugely influenced, "Dreams and Due Diligence" is irreplaceable.

I am writing a stem cell book myself, and studied Sornberger's book carefully. He is a fine clear writer, and definitely has done his homework.

Joe Sornberger has done the stem cell world a real favor by writing this book. I hope it will be reprinted many times.
