An excellent blend of history, science and social observations. I enjoy the way the book reads like a story, tracing our understanding of cancer through the ages. It is definitely for people who like their history more topic-focused, rather than centered around a specific person. ( )

An excellent read if you have ever wondered about causes, treatments, and understanding how cancer takes over a body or you have someone close to you that has suffered through this nightmare. This book is written in more of a biography style since as the writer puts it, Cancer acts more like a biological being that can adapt to it's surroundings. It also explains the technological advances that have occurred over the past 100 years and how there is hope for future treatments in the future. The war on cancer may never be won, but science and medicine are slowly winning the battles with new treatments. DEFINITELY recommended reading! ( )

The author covers the history of cancer. Well detailed, and for the most part, very readable. ( )

I learned so much! A few parts of the newer, genetic science were a bit beyond me, but the author did a good job with analogies and examples to help the non-scientist reader. His research is comprehensive and the story is fascinating.

My biggest take-away from this book is the sense of gratitude and awe I have for the researchers who never give up. The kind of people who search tirelessly for cures or treatments and the kind of people whose sense of curiosity and love of knowledge give us the basic research which others can apply. ( )

Loved this book, which was not quite what I expected. Where were these great men of science when my father was dying? Where are they now? I know they exist, but most of us only have access to those physicians, like my late father's, who treat their cancer patient using standard protocol: "Here's a list, let's check everything off, watch the patient die, then say we did what we could and get home in time for dinner and the evening news.." The real physicians are like those who appear in this book -- driven to cure this horrible disease. I was inspired and awed by these men and fascinated by the world of cancer research. Although the author did not pull punches when it came to the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, it was never the diatribe it could have been. This wasn't a book about where the blame lies, but about those who have worked hard and brought us far in such a relatively short time. ( )

It's time to welcome a new star in the constellation of great doctor-writers. With this fat, enthralling, juicy, scholarly, wonderfully written history of cancer, Siddhartha Mukherjee - a cancer physician and researcher at Columbia University - vaults into that exalted company ...

Illness is the night-side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use only the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place. —Susan Sontag

Prologue
Diseases desperate grown
By desperate appliance are relieved
Or not at all.

—William Shakespeare,
Hamlet

Cancer begins and ends with people. In the midst of
scientific abstraction, it is sometimes possible to forget
this one basic fact. . . . Doctors treat diseases, but they also
treat people, and this precondition of their professional
existence sometimes pulls them in two directions at once.

—June Goodfield

On the morning of May 19, 2004, Carla Reed, a thirty-year-old kindergarten teacher from Ipswich, Massachusetts, a mother of three young children, woke up in bed with a headache.
In a damp fourteen-by-twenty-foot laboratory in Boston on a December morning in 1947, a man named Sidney Farber waited impatiently for the arrival of a parcel from New York.

In solving a problem of this sort, the grand thing is to be able to reason backwards. That is a very useful accomplishment, and a very easy one, but people do not practice it much. —Sherlock Holmes, in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet
Physicians of the utmost fame Were called at once; but when they came They answered, as they took their Fees, "There is no Cure for this Disease." —Hilaire Belloc
Its palliation is a daily task, its cure a fervent hope. —William Castle, describing leukemia in 1950
