It remains an astonishing, disturbing fact that in America one of the most potent and common carcinogens known to humans can be freely bought and sold at every corner store for a few dollars.

Siddhartha Mukherjee


Almost everyone on Earth has been or will be, touched by cancer in some way. Around 40% of us will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in our lives, so it's no wonder most of us know someone who's had it.

Although we encounter cancer often, very few of us actually understand much about it. But it isn't a mystery. Scientific understanding of cancer has hugely progressed in the last century to explain exactly what causes it and how we can treat it.

In The Emperor Of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, physician, biologist, and oncologist Siddhartha Mukherjee brings us an in-depth look into cancer's past, present, and future. We learn the fascinating science of what causes the disease and what we can do to both prevent and treat it.
