really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read in March, 2008

I have not finished this yet because it had to go back to the library, but it is super compelling. Thanks Angela for the suggestion. It has this huge scope and history about cancer and cancer research...or lack of research. It all totally parallels the increased development of coal plants, chemicals, etc. Really tragic and sometimes terrifying histories. I am only half way though, and in the 1950s...i can't imagine it gets any less dire.
