6 Everything Conceivable: How Assisted Reproduction Is Changing Our World 4514 4.00
A revolution is taking place and it's being driven by the most fundamental of all human urges—the desire to reproduce. This revolution is the subject of Mundy's utterly fascinating book on assisted reproduction. The breadth and thoroughness of Mundy's investigation makes it nearly impossible to come away without having your opinions challenged if not changed altogether. Mundy, a feature writer for the Washington Post, combines a science reporter's objectivity with a mother's understanding, and she delivers her emotionally charged and often scientifically complex material in clear, bright and eminently readable prose. Mundy's research starts with the facts: 80 million people worldwide suffer from infertility; 500,000 frozen embryos exist in America alone; and fertility drugs are a $3-billion a year business. From there she interviews mothers, fathers, infertility doctors, surrogate mothers, egg donors, sperm donors and adult children conceived through surrogacy and in vitro fertilization. The picture that emerges is one of a social experiment so new and untested—legally, medically, ethically and socially—that it behooves us all to be as informed as possible. There couldn't be a better starting point than this book.

8 One in a Million: The Real Story of Ivf And the Fight to Forge a Family 3904 2.00
The first investigative look into the medical miracle that has also become an unregulated, lucrative industry, by a journalist who has experienced first-hand both its wonders and its dangers Increasingly doctors are telling women and couples that in vitro fertilization is their best chance to have a baby. The procedure is advancing so quickly, it is replacing most other treatments for infertility. Since the first baby was born a generation ago, there are now more than one million IVF children in the world. Still, at least twice that many families have had their hearts and bank accounts broken in the attempt for their own one in a million. IVF, after all, remains an experiment, and an imperfect one at that. It has never had any significant public funding for research and is instead supported by patients, human lab rats, who are willing to give almost anything and to go through almost anything for a child. Sherry Sontag entered this world of raw emotion, medicine and commerce in an effort to win a baby of her own. To understand this field that so often blends art, science and science fiction, she interviews the scientists and doctors who have created IVF, and those that continue to push it. She also talks to the people whose experiences, good and bad, are often airbrushed out of the statistics. One in a Million will answer the questions every IVF patient inevitably asks: "How did I get here?" "How should I go about this?" and "Is it worth it?"
