The Emperor of All Maladies: a biography of cancer

When I pick up a book that won a Pulitzer, I expected to read good writing. Having said that, I was somewhat apprehensive at the thought of reading a treatise on cancer.  No such need.  As author Siddhartha Mukherjee promises, he has treated cancer not as a thing (a disease) but as  a person – hence the subtitle.  That you want to keep turning pages until you get to the end is a testament to the effective treatment Mukherjee affords this serious and painful subject. It is obvious that he is an expert in his field, a good writer, and – above all – a wonderful “explainer.”  (submitted by library customer MA)
