The Emperor of All Maladies
A Biography of Cancer
From Library Staff
I read this a few years ago and loved it then. Picked it up recently and I love it still. About to be a Ken Burns documentary, and you want to read the book first, don't you? Yes, you do. (Tama's pick)
A magnificently written "biography" of cancer--from its origins to the epic battle to cure, control, and conquer it.
