Review quote

"...contains especially strong content on adult stem cells, as well as additional chapters that focus on the more universal themes of pluripotency itself, cancer stem cells, and aging of resident adult stem cell populations." --The Quarterly Review of Biology, Stem Cells in Development and Disease
