My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a thoroughly fascinating read. It is an in depth look into the history, science, and politics of medicine both as a a career and as therapy. It is a biography of our humanity through the lens or what might perhaps be the oldest disease that we have ever faced, Cancer. As such, it takes us through the fabric of who we are and what we can accomplish through tenacity, creativity, and a serendipitous confluence of seemingly disparate events.
