The Cloning Dialogue Feb 16, 2005
Mr. Treanor's book provides thre reader with a thorough understanding of the cloning and stem cell debate. He raises the issue above the political arena, although one must understand the political and religious implications. The story line tends to get lost in the translation but is helped by the authors dry humour as any occasional Methodist could tell you. The passion, the possibilities and the pitfalls of cloning come out in his characters. This book makes you think. It is a wake up call. Decisions will have to be made. We should be a part of it. This is a good read on a timely subject.
