    The Emperor of All Maladies

    Good read with a history of cancer discovery/research. Gets a little dry in spots but interesting.

    Well written and interesting

    The subject matter of this book is not light, but it's written in a way that is engaging and personable. A great chronicle of humanity's fight against a most pernicious foe.

    A Historian With A Time Machine

    All I'm gonna say is: "you will experience a glorious moments of revelation", however, he tries in futility, to Hijack the history of "surgical oncology" and to discredit "The Great Founding Father Of Modern Surgery", William Stewart Halsted, but you can not blame the author for that, after all he is a "medical diplomat" who tries to convince others that he fought at the front lines of cancer therapy, when in fact , it is the Great "Surgical Warriors" that fight and die and the front line of war on cancer, then it becomes clear why a diplomat would try to take the credit for winning the war, that was won by the great warriors and martyrs, Surgery , always have been, always will be, the most effective preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic, prognostic, palliative, modality, And "Visceral Surgeons", will always lead the fight , and one day, they will win the war, Do not be fooled by the author "nihilistic" outlook on the war on cancer, for he is a "physician", not a " Surgeon", When was the last time that physicians won any war? They are mere observers of that war, and that us the best they could be, just "historians", no matter how good at it, that 's just about it, a good story tellers, Leave the fighting and the winning, to the Surgical Warriors, definitely we have lost so many battles, but make no mistake, we will win that war, the term cancer itself, will be one day, obsolete, archaic term, for an eradicated disease , just like small pox, and polio, and this is not a mere wishful thinking, this is "The Doctrine" of our "Founding Fathers", We leave the "chronicling" for them, For we are busy fighting
