  • "Spectacular!"

    Overall

    Simultaneously horrifying and compelling. How could a book about such a horrible disease be such a page turner but it is. The story is riddled with personal anecdotes and stories about how the treatment of cancer progressed step by painful step. Learning how cancer cells work was a revelation but not for the unscientific minded. The review of transcription and how retroviruses work can be daunting but worth the attention. The fact that at any moment the genes of one cell can be influenced by various external factors, change their configuration, free itself from the normal constraints of the body and go wild, is a sobering thought. The thought I am left with is that these cancer cells are like evil dopplegangers lurking in the shadows to take over my body. If you are going to listen to one non-fiction book this year, this should be it.

    Written by cancer physician, researcher, and award-winning science writer Siddhartha Mukherjee, The Emperor of All Maladies is a stunning combination of medical history, cutting-edge science, and narrative journalism that transforms our understanding of cancer and much of the world around us. Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist's precision, a novelist's richness of detail, a historian's range, and a biographer's passion.

  • "Simultaneously repulsive and fascin..."

    Overall

    I enjoyed this book thoroughly. There were parts that were so repulsive that I almost had to stop listening but I persevered and was rewarded with one of the funniest, fascinating books I've ever listened to. The reader was particularly good. She captured the dark humor side of the book. How can we go wrong when a book lists the most common ways of testing a corpse for truly being dead including a red-hot poker up the butt?

    For two thousand years, cadavers have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They've tested France's first guillotines, ridden the NASA Space Shuttle, been crucified in a Parisian laboratory to test the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800. For every new surgical procedure, from heart transplants to gender reassignment surgery, cadavers have been there alongside surgeons, making history in their quiet way.

    If you could sum up The Science of Natural Healing in three words, what would they be?

    As a health practitioner, I found Dr. Guarneri right on target and up to date on many of the most recent evidence-based medicine. It will help me greatly in using the appropriate language to communicate effectively with my patients.

    Highly recommend and could save you or a loved one's life.

  • "Heroic Story"

    48 of 49 helpful votes

    Another true story from someone who is neither famous nor a player on the world stage, nor the architect of some planet--changing accomplishment. However she DID go through hell and back, and not only survived but thrived, and lived to tell about it.

    This woman has my unconditional admiration. The story has her pushing through obstacle after obstacle, jumping (metaphorically) through hoops and all the while never losing her perspective and sense of humor. Several times I laughed out loud while walking the bike path - other walkers, cyclists, runners must have thought I was nuts.

    The gauntlet was thrown down many many times by her doctors and the rest of the medical establishment and she triumphed over that one too - hilariously naming all the characters and courageously ignoring their "advice" (in quotes for this) in order to follow her own path as an overachiever in the best way possible.

    The narration was perfect. Joyce Bean's tone walked that fine line between sarcasm and honest emotion, and her nuanced characterization of Julia's impaired but gradually improving speech abilities could not have worked out better.

    One more thing, if you've come this far in this review - the book uses the second person throughout, a technique that I am starting to love. Like the airplane pilot in "The Night Strangers" whose story is always a "you" story, 2nd person, this technique makes the narrative sound like an instruction manual, in a good way. After all, books can be, amongst so many other things, instruction manuals for life.

    5 stars all around!

    Julia Fox Garrison refused to listen to the professionals she called Dr. Jerk and Dr. Panic, who - after she suffered a massive, debilitating stroke at age thirty-seven - told her she’d probably die, or to Nurse Doom, who ignored her emergency call button. Instead she heeded the advice of kind, gifted Dr. Neuro, who promised her he would “treat your mind as well as your body.” Julia figured if she could somehow manage to get herself into a wheelchair, at least she’d always find parking. But after many, many months of hospitalization and rehab, Julia not only got into a wheelchair, but she got back out.

    Who among us will overcome cancer, and why will we be able to? Who among us will be defeated by cancer, and why will we be? Typically, advanced medicines and modern equipments could treat most deadly sicknesses nowadays, but the veracity is almost the complete opposite for lethal cancer. Commonly yet characteristically, how are cancerous tumors created to begin with? How can we prevent ourselves from high risks of having cancer? How can we help ourselves fight against fatal cancer?

    As sentient beings, we all know that we will die someday, but by the same token, we all fear of death. Even if death sounds really scary, all of us are willing not only to take high risks but also to subject ourselves to dangers throughout our whole lives, regardless of whether we realize it or not. Why is it so? It is simply because none of us believes in the ephemeral nature of life. When death comes to strangers, to our neighbors, to our blood relatives, and even to our family members, we still serenely live with the mentality that death will never come to us.

    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

A secret military SWAT team of soldiers and scientists is mobilized to stop the outbreak of this exotic "hot" virus. The Hot Zone tells this dramatic story, giving a hair-raising account of the appearance of rare and lethal viruses and their "crashes" into the human race. Shocking, frightening, and impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone proves that truth really is scarier than fiction.

What we call a "disease" is the outcome of an imbalance in one or more of the seven core physiological processes. Leveraging a lifetime on the cutting edge of research and practice, Dr. Jeffrey S. Bland lays out a road map for good health by helping us understand these processes and the root causes of chronic illness.

    Defining "medicalization" as the perception of nonmedical conditions as medical problems and nondiseases as diseases, Thomas Szasz has devoted much of his career to exposing the dangers of "medicalizing" the conditions of some who simply refuse to conform to society's expectations. Szasz argues that modern psychiatry's tireless ambition to explain the human condition has led to the treatment of life's difficulties and oddities as clinical illnesses rather than as humanity revealed in its fullness.
