“The struggle against cancer eventually touches the lives of every person on this planet. In The Emperor of All Maladies, Siddharta Mukherjee displays remarkable skill in blending a definitive history of this disease with a compelling narrative. The book is informative, moving, and provocative, and teaches us a powerful lesson about humanity. We live in the face of inevitable uncertainty, but the knowledge in these pages makes us stronger and more compassionate beings.”
— Geoffrey B. Jennings, Rainy Day Books, Fairway, KS

“For anyone whose life has been touched by cancer -- probably all of us -- this is a fantastic introduction to not only what cancer is, but also its history, cultural significance, and the legacy of our battles to overcome it. Mukherjee's treatment of this epic subject is multifaceted and told with energy, eloquence, and a deep sense of the human stories behind the medicine.”
— Mark LaFramboise, Politics & Prose Books and Coffee Shop, Washington, DC
