About book: It's really hard for me to rate this book because I read for pleasure and it was not a pleasurable book to read (or in my case, listen). For me it was an achievement to finish it because it was a bit over my head in parts and I found my thoughts wandering. Still, I did learn a bit about cancer and health and medical studies. I loved the historical approach.This book made me sad, and I wished that it included more personal stories with happy endings, but that is cancer in a nutshell, right? I hope that if I ever have to travel that path as a patient or caregiver that I have a physician as compassionate as Dr. Mukherjee. An easy to understand but not oversimplified guide to the history of cancer. This book was fascinating, thought-provoking and incredibly informative. This book was broken up into sections to make it more accessible, which could be a tad confusing chronologically, but undoubtedly made each point made clearer. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in cancer, healthcare, or medical history.
