The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee

An excellent “biography” of cancer written for lay and professionals alike.  Dr. Mukherjee’s emphasis is on serving the needs of the patient, which medicine has not always done.  I whole-heartedly commend adding this to your reading list.  The writing is smooth, with careful explanations of technical terms.  I suggest you write/draw a time-line as you read.  I wish I had done this – I realized how helpful it would have been at pg. 133.  Enjoy!

What say you? I'd love to hear...
