do you love animals? like baby kittens? maybe you have or had one? Are you pregnant or a new mother and full of love to all things little? Don't read this book if you don't want to get upset.
I am very interested in neuroscience and was excited about this book. I couldn't finish and I am appalled by the way author describes enormous cruelty to lab animals that served for us to study the brain. I gave up when she started talking about newborn kittens and monkeys sewn their eyes or made cross eyed so their vision can be studied. I am not naive and I know that the animals bear the price for our scientific advances but the author's matter of fact tone was heartbreaking. I'll save you the time -- apparently it's much worse for the kittens to have only one eye sutured rather than both.
