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

j a nice book, January 3, 2011

Could not put this book down and am finding that I can't help talking about it to my friends. My husband gave it to me for Christmas and I can't wait for him to read it too. I learned so much about not just our war on cancer, but on our war against illnesses in general. Written in an erudite and moving fashion, the science was illuminating and accessible. The story of cancer's journey and our interactions with this disease through time, allowed me to reflect on the shaping of our society through this lens.

I would dare anyone to not be moved by this story.
