really liked it
Read in July, 2012

This book will probably become a classic of science literature. In the deft hands of Mr. Mukherjee, Cancer assumes the role of one of the greatest villains in history. Part detective story, part thriller, part history book, it is an engrossing read that you'll have a hard time putting down. The only downside the book had for me is that I was blissfuly ignorant of what an adversary Cancer is.
