It’s a fascinating suspenseful story of a disease that we will all be touched by at some time in our lives directly or indirectly. It is in us, it is us. We should know it. Siddhartha does a beautiful job of walking us through the history of cancer. From the earliest discovery of mummies with afflicted organs cut away to the first mention of this disease being named in ancient writings. We visit labs in basements of dedicated pioneers seeking to understand the cause of gross growths choking off vital organs. Many spend their entire lifetimes performing experiments whose conclusions are snickered at by their contemporaries but are found to be the cornerstones of understanding what occurs when a normal cell suddenly bursts to produce alien cells.

This book is also a tribute to the patients who ultimately die and the doctors, nurses, scientists and families who push to find medicines and research to prolong future cancer patients’ lives and end the stigma of hopelessness that the prognosis of cancer brings. Beautifully as we near the end of the story, we revisit patients whose cancers seem to have disappeared from their bodies and have been able to return to a life that is presumed dead. We also see some questions still as unanswerable today as centuries ago. We recommend this book to anyone interested in this terrible disease. Mukherjee introduces cancer in terms of both its effects on humans and their resilience. He illuminates the path the myriad of treatments have taken over the years reminding the reader that science and medicine require much determination and a willingness to follow through and change direction as the research points in new directions. The Emperor of All Maladies reminds the reader of the benefits of working across borders and cultures to find answers. The history of cancer is rather dark and even eerie at times but leaves one feeling grudging respect for its tenacity. Mukherjee explains how it adapts to human beings’ attempts to eradicate it. As Mukherjee draws direct lines between researchers and research findings from around the world that have brought us to where we are today in the treatment of cancer, he reminds us that cooperation often benefits us all more than isolation does. The Emperor of All Maladies puts cancer under the microscope for anyone whose life has been affected by cancer or might someday be affected by cancer, directly or indirectly. In summary, this is an outstanding and important book. What sets this book apart is Dr. Mukherjee’s ability to weave multiple storylines into a fascinating narrative about the history of cancer with just the right touch of humanity.
