really liked it
bookshelves: nonfiction
Read from May 15 to December 31, 2011

Not bad, but I couldn't finish it. The first part--early cancer research--was fascinating, but as time went on the scientific detail got more complex and this mushbrain reader couldn't keep up. Admirable attempt to deal with the history of our fascination with the Big C, though.
