Everything you need to understand or teach Next by Michael Crichton.
Next is a novel by writer Michael Crichton. This novel questions the impact of bio-research on the world's population. Crichton presents several scenarios, including the question of ownership of one man's cells, the use of new therapies in humans without proper animal testing, and the idea of crossing human DNA with that of animals. The characters in the novel struggle with these issues, issues that seem outrageous at first but quickly begin to hit home with the readers.
