Where do we stand in our battle against cancer and how have we reached this point? In which ways has our view of the disease changed, and how has this influenced the evolution of its evil trajectory? Are we winning or losing the "war against cancer"? In this Pulitzer-Prize winning work, 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. Riveting, urgent, and surprising, The Emperor of All Maladies provides a fascinating glimpse into the future of cancer treatments. It is an illuminating book that provides hope and clarity to those seeking to demystify cancer.
