Woolly: the true story of the quest to revive one of history's most iconic extinct creatures / Ben Mezrich, 293 pgs.

I was fascinated by this book, telling of the team of young scientist who are trying to genetically engineer the return of the Woolly Mammoth.  We learn about several different areas of research, not the least is a discovery about climate change and how to correct some of the problems humans have created.  Fear not, there are a lot of ethical issues involved in this type of science and the book covers the topic. And YES, they all have seen/read Jurassic Park.  My only complaint would be that some areas could have used a harder look.
