    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.

    Story

    I was really interested in the topic and was fascinated by the complete history of cancer turned into a novel. HOWEVER the language & vocabulary are written in the perspective of a Doctor (with a giant stick up his ***). The sentences run on and the medical vocabulary is never explained. It is more like doctors talking to doctors, not seemingly created for a wide audience. Additionally the book jumps around a lot. The subject matter is a very emotional thing for people but the narrator has a dry egotistical voice.
