    Siddhartha, a story based on the early life of Gautama Buddha, is concerned with the human search for self-knowledge and authentic spirituality. Hesse had written the first part of the book easily enough, but had to stop for a year with depression, before completing it in 1922. The book is a synthesis of Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist, and Christian thought, though Hesse rejected all conventional religion for a more individual and personal path.

    Carl R. Lunsford says: "One of tye best Hesse novels."

The sun tanned his light shoulders by the banks of the river when bathing, performing the sacred ablutions, the sacred offerings.

    The Emperor of All Maladies reveals the many faces of an iconic, shape-shifting disease that is the defining plague of our generation. The story of cancer is a story of human ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance but also of hubris, arrogance, paternalism, and misperception, all leveraged against a disease that, just three decades ago, was thought to be easily vanquished in an all-out "war against cancer".

    Ein Buch, dessen Tiefe in der kunstvoll einfachen und klaren Sprache verborgen liegt, eine Klarheit, die vermutlich die geistige Erstarrung jener literarischen Philister aus dem Konzept bringt, die immer so genau wissen, was gute und was schlechte Literatur ist. Siddhartha ist für mich eine wirksamere Medizin als das Neue Testament. Henry Miller drückt in diesen Worten die Faszination aus, die die Geschichte des Brahmanensohns Siddhartha noch heute ausübt.

    The Gene by Siddhartha Mukherjee describes the history of genetic research, the impact of genetic inheritance on his family, and the potential for future applications of gene science. Mukherjee's father and uncles struggled with disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, both of which are linked to genetic mutations. After centuries of conjecture about the nature of familial inheritance, naturalist Charles Darwin published his theory of evolution in 1859.

    In Siddhartha, Herman Hesse conveys a very profound message for all those who seek meaning in their lives. Though set in India, the concerns of Siddhartha are universal, expressing Hesse's general interest in the conflict between mind, body, and spirit. It is a story of a Brahmin boy who follows his heart and ventures out into the world to experience life as a pious Brahmin, a Samana, a rich merchant, a lover, and ordinary ferryman to a father - each life bringing a new awakening, bringing him closer to the truth until he is finally one with Buddha.

The story of the gene begins in an obscure Augustinian abbey in Moravia in 1856, where a monk stumbles on the idea of a 'unit of heredity'.
