The Emperor of All Maladies

The Emporer of all maladies

Now, as cancer becomes an ever more universal experience, the need to understand it,
and its treatment, has never been more compelling.
In this groundbreaking and award-winning account Siddhartha Mukherjee tells the fascinating story of our relationship with this disease.
From brutal early surgical treatments, to Sidney Farber’s hugely risky discovery of chemotherapy, to the author’s treatment of his own patients, he reveals how far we have come in solving one of science’s great mysteries and offers a fascinating glimpse of our future progress.

This is the best book from my reading list, that helped me understand the complex journey to

understand cancer and the development of treatment. The narration is gripping and I leant a
lot from reading this book. -Murthy
