In a previous post, The Battle Against Cancer, I suggested visitors consider listening or reading a fascinating, comprehensive biography of cancer, the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction.
- Audiobook [Unabridged] – Paperback
- Siddhartha Mukherjee
- Narrated by Stephen Hoye
- Length: 20 hrs and 49 mins – 608 pages
- Overthrowing the Emperor of All Maladies: Moving Forward Against Cancer Series (video 58 minutes)
In the video series listed above, Dr. Mukherjee explains that he sees cancer as a lens in which to understand modern society and the acquisition of knowledge. He describes himself as a “sober optimist” about the future of cancer research about the future of cancer research as he urges the cancer community to demand more public support for cancer therapies, treatments and prevention.
This spring PBS and Ken Burns will present The Story of Cancer. View the preview, below, share it with others, then watch the film when it becomes available.
