As Nature Made Him

Book was received in a timely manner and was in very good condition.


fascinating, sad, tale

by Sicilian on Jun 4, 2008

I was gripped by this books' ability to show the passionate side of a story through the eyes and hearts of the family it so deeply affected and the scientific almost diabolical side of the medical profession that allowed such an atrocity to exist. John Colapinto uncovered a story which was misused, misunderstood and almost hidden from the real world for many years. He exposes the doctor who encouraged and allowed these devastated young, vulnerable parents to make decisions which seemed to be more for his research and own personal gains . He takes us into the homes and hearts of the family which were truly victims in this botchery of an experiment. He also gives credit to the fine teachers and doctors whom finally allow this nightmare to be partially over.Unfortunately, since the time this book was written, things have changed dramatically. It will be necessary for the reader to do a little bit of research to learn about the rest of this story.


Thought provoking

This book really challenges the question of nature vs. nurture. The author definitely grabs the reader into the plot on a personal level and constantly challenges biological theory presenting the evidence from both sides. It was required for my Evolutionary/Genetical Biology course but I strongly recommend it also as a pleasure read.
