Writing an interesting book on cancer is not easy

I had never thought that a book on history of cancer can be so interesting. I reluctantly bought it and kept it on bookshelf for more than 3-4 months. But when I started reading it, I found it unputdownable. Even if you do not have a medical background, you will love it. And do not keep it on your shelf. Read it.

Elaborate book on Cancer

I would thank author for presenting cancer in narrative way so for layman. Although going through this book generates various emotions, sadness, fear, hope. We are advancing in medical research on a fast pace but at the same time we have to be more balanced in life with exercise and healthy food.

good book to buy and read

Though it is a book on specific disease. The author describes how the treatment is evolved through various stages using discoveries made in related fields. Very easy to read, gripping. Good book to buy

The Emperor of Maladies : A Biography of Cancer

I read it as a book that would bring joy to me in times of sorrow. Although the topic of interest brings sorrows to the family of the patient I got be fall in love with Siddharth's writings. As a doctor myself i did never know the delicate intricacies of cancer cells. How alike they were and how each single cancer in every single patient was different from others.A wonderful book for doctors interested in history and literature. Well written crisp but exhaustive. It shows how exorbitant efforts are needed to come up with a masterpiece like this. More than the efforts put for the book I congratulate Sid for his efforts in the field of cancer research. A fantastic book for doctors and public health persons who have never understood study designs in detail from Community Medicine books. the story telling skill makes medical subject of cancer which is dry and upsetting also very interesting. I would rate it as the best book I have ever read in life.

Beautiful and well thought chapters

This book by Dr Mukherjee bought a tremendous effect on my work ethics .I work for a clinical research industry and I recognize and acknowledge this book for a in depth dive for Oncology. We participate and work in many clinical trials and majority of them are Cancer trials.
On a average cancer trials in our industry we generally check to increase the life expectancy of the patients since there are no complete cure for Cancer. There are loads of side effects on the chemothrapy and after reading this book I feel more responsible when I am heading a trial for oncology. I check all the details again and again with great care and accuracy. Try to find a logic in more depth with the relevent Adverse events n other incidents.

This book actually drew a face for "Cancer" to me!!! I now can relate my work, knowledge and with this dreaded disease very clearly. I feel more responsible to conduct and analyze data from those trials and keep in mind the ordeal this disease has created worldwide.
I work with some top 10 pharma company in the world in their oncology trials and I have recommended this book to many of my clients and gifted too few of them as well.
Together we are still fighting against this disease and hopefully will be able to save the earth from his clutch!!!

A strongly recommended book for all those who have a thrust for knowledge and ready to dive deep with the author for the facts and figures!!!!
A gripping history of cancer and the early and current challenges the researchers and people face every day to tackle and win over the Emperor.

A must read.

Great Book

I ordered this book on Flipkart after this book won the Pulitzer. Needless to say, it is a very well writern book on cancer, where the author has managed to turn a squalid subject into a memoir. He makes you hook on to it as if its a work of fiction.
