Dear Friend of Stem Cell Research:

I am currently just finishing a new book, “CALIFORNIA CURES:  How Our California Stem Cell Program is Challenging Chronic Disease: How We Are Beginning to Win– and Why We Must Do It Again!” by the same publisher (World Scientific Publishing, Inc.) who helped produce my last book.

Speaking of which… my first book, “STEM CELL BATTLES: How Ordinary People Can Fight Back Against the Crushing Burden of Chronic Disease: with a Posthumous Foreword by Christopher Reeve”– is on sale.

If you agree with me that the California stem cell program is something we absolutely must preserve, you might like this book. Check out the contents page below….

“A well-written book on a technical and challenging subject, Stem Cell Battles is a real page-turner. Don Reed writes from a layman’s point of view; his credentials and advocacy experience position him to thoroughly cover his subject and present the subject of stem cell research in an interesting and entertaining way. The book is appropriate for students doing research, for any general reader, and for anyone who is or knows the one in two Americans with an incurable disease or disability. The book fills a gap in public library collections, and is useful in academic collections as well because it covers the subject very well. The author carefully and thoroughly footnotes and documents his material; the reader can see the reliability of the subject coverage, and know here to follow up as interested.”

This is a one-of-a-kind book: combining easy-to-understand science, in-the-trenches political warfare, and inspirational stories. It aims to give hope to individuals and families who suffer from chronic disease or disability; to point out how ordinary people can make an extraordinary difference in the battle to ease suffering and save lives through supporting medical research; to share in “people talk” some of the amazing progress already achieved in the new field of stem cell research; to show how even such a magnificent success as the California stem cell program is under constant attack from ideological groups; to offer medical research …more.
