I really like this book for the depth and breadth being covered on such hard topic. The painstaking details on the pursuit to find a cure, the touching narrative of the personal stories, and the rigorous scientific accuracy, all of the above made this book one of its kind.

Focused on the 20th century, mainly in the U.S.A., it weaves biography, institutional history, and the development of medical research.
Frankly, the only thing I want to learn about cancer now is how to avoid getting it.
