Here is a magnificent‚ profoundly humane “biography” of cancer — from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the twentieth century to cure‚ control‚ and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence. Physician‚ researcher‚ and award-winning science writer Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision‚ a historian’s perspective‚ and a biographer’s passion.
