6. The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer

I should stop reading books about cancer. I need to think about something else. I am glad that I took the time to read this though. It's an extensive look at the history of research and treatment of all kinds of cancer. The author is a physician who manages to write about scientifically technical material in an easy to understand language. I was fascinated! Who knew about treatment poultices made from crab eyes? Even though I loved this book, I would only recommend it to other uber-geeks like me.
