    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.

    Would you try another book from Siddhartha Mukherjee and/or Stephen Hoye?

    I might try another book by Mukherjee. I can't blame him for the arrogant narration.


    Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?

    The concepts were too political and simplistic. I am not a medical doctor and yet I was insulted by the perspective.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stephen Hoye?

    Absolutely anyone.


    Do you think The Emperor of All Maladies needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Heavens NO ! Unless someone else writes and narrates it.


    Any additional comments?

    I optimistically purchased this recording after reading several reviews. The narrator's arrogance ruined the book for me. That is too bad. A meaningful topic that deserves better treatment. I suspect it was not the subject matter that doomed the book for me but the narration which put me to sleep. The subject matter should be far more accessible than its treatment here. How unfortunate.
