The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee
The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer

greengummi27, January 28, 2011

This book is absolutely fantastic. The 500+ pages fly by-- Siddhartha Mukherjee's writing is more medical thriller than medical textbook, although the book is a carefully researched history of cancer. The story of cancer research and those that pioneered it is often horrifying, sometimes uplifting, and always fascinating. If you have even a passing interest in the medical field, pick this up immediately. And if you are incredibly interested in medicine and oncology and have not yet finished it, well, what are you waiting for??
