The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee

In The Emperor of All Maladies, oncologist Siddhartha Mukherjee tells the story of cancer in a biographical format. He chronicles the disease from its first documented cases thousands of years ago, to battles among scientists about how to research and treat the disease, to the discoveries of drugs and chemotherapy that help fight cancer, to Mukherjee's own experiences with some of his patients. He tells of advances that make many forms of cancer survivable, yet diagnosis of other forms is basically a death sentence. The Emperor of All Maladies has received positive reviews with the Boston Globe saying, "What makes Mukherjee’s narrative so remarkable is that he imbues decades of painstaking laboratory investigation with the suspense of a mystery novel and urgency of a thriller."
