The Emperor of All Maladies does an extraordinary job portraying the fickle balance between the horrors of unchecked cell growth and the great promise of modern medicine in its treatment.

Everyone has had their lives touched by cancer in someway. Whether it's a family member, friend, or friend of a friend, we all have known someone who has battled and won or lost that battle to cancer. This book is an epic overview of the history of research and treatment development of all different types of cancer. While it does get a little technical for those with no previous healthcare experience, the stories and accounts still reach to a personal level. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in knowing how the fight against this disease we have all encountered was begun, developed, and continuing.

Fascinating history of the development of treatments for cancer. Extremely well written; even those not in the medical field should find it interesting.

A very enlightening look at the history of our battle against cancer. It left me with the realization that the better approach is not searching for a cure but, as with all other public health diseases, learning to prevent it!
