A comprehensive history of cancer — one of the greatest enemies of medical progress — and an insight into its effects and potential cures, by a leading expert on the illness. Cancer is one of a handful of human ailments that continue to elude us. The modern age is plagued with news of rising cancer rates, all kinds of possible man-made causes and a constant stream of potential miracle cures. In the course of his investigations into cancer, however, Siddhartha Mukherjee discovered that it is an ancient illness, which endured for centuries as a private matter, swaddled in secrecy and shame.
Siddhartha Mukherjee (* 1970 in Neu-Delhi, Indien) ist ein amerikanisch-indischer Schriftsteller, Arzt und Wissenschaftler. Für das Buch The Emperor of All Maladies wurde er unter anderem mit dem Pulitzer-Preis für Sachbücher 2011 ausgezeichnet. “Wow. Just wow. This guy certainly deserves his Pulitzer. I learned a ton from this book. While there were a few scientific sections that were so technical my limited intellectual capacity had a hard time following it, for the most part this book does a great job of explaining the history of cancer and the technological advances made in a very readable manner for a layperson.” (Leser) (1.688 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 597 Seiten noch günstig?
