Editorial Reviews

Cancer is a harsh reality that most people, either directly or indirectly, have to deal with at some point throughout the course of their lives, and it is largely perceived as a sinister force that arbitrarily invades and wreaks havoc on the body. Kelly Birch’s entrancing, gentle delivery assuages any trepidation one may have in learning more about this mysterious disease in her reading of Paul Scotting’s primer, which provides a bottom-up deep-dive into the biological foundation of cancer, debunks the myths surrounding it, and touts the advancements made in treating it in this accessible and informative audiobook.

Publisher's Summary

Cancer is the second biggest killer in the world, but few of us understand how it works or how we treat it. In this illuminating introductory audiobook, Paul Scotting explains the science behind the disease and explores why some of us are more likely to develop it than others. Arguing that we're in a new age of understanding that will revolutionise the fight against cancer, Scotting discusses cutting-edge developments and maps out the promising future strategies for its prevention, treatment, and cure.

This is ice knowledge to share in an audible form.

This is an audio presentation of knowledge that needs distributed so that good ideas from everywhere can be contributed. The presentation was plain and at points hard to understand because of a beautiful accent without accessible enunciation. Call this audiobook a fine version one and continue to improve organically how it's done.
