Cancer has been with us throughout history, but only recent medical developments have helped us understand what it is. This book is particularly fascinating in its recounting of the War on Cancer's tragic missteps and horrifying mistakes. Absolutely fascinating.

SummaryAdd a Summary
A really, really long book about the history of cancer. It's well written and interesting BUT VERY INTENSE. I would really like this book if I could read a couple of chapters, put it down and then read a couple more chapters in a month. It's got very specialized vocab that I don't always understand, but even so, I really know much more about cancer than I ever thought I could learn.
