  1. Last April I was diagnosed with acute leukaemia After a stem cell transplant I am coming up for a year.When you are told you have cancer you are bewildered You are also very angry I asked myself was there something I had done in my past that was going to deprive me seeing my two sons grow up into happy young men and dads The first two weeks go by in a weird nightmare Day 17 your hair falls out Your peeing orange from the chemo drugs, which have put me off lucozade for life You double check all y [...]


  2. This book was outstanding, and one that should be read with care for anyone working in oncology Although factually interested, I felt the book was slightly dry while reviewing the early history of cancer care The change in prose was palpable as it transitioned to modern oncology, where the author gave detailed, emotional accounts of his own patient interactions The last 200 pages were phenomenal and often describes why I chose oncology as a profession It gives beautiful descriptions of the grit [...]


  3. A beautifully written, fascinating, well researched, and, ultimately, sobering look at cancer I bought this book because I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer I wanted a deeper understanding of cancer than I could find on the usual cancer websites patients are directed to This book delivered in spades It delves into the history of cancer our understanding of it and treatment through the ages It goes into the biology of cancer and how scientists have come to understand about it It tal [...]

  5. My 10 year old daughter has Leukaemia This book has fascinated me I have found it both deeply disturbing and strangely comforting at the same time It is beautifully written and thoroughly engaging, which considering the subject matter, somewhat surprised me This is no beach read, but will draw you in and leave you feeling optimistic and incredibly grateful to the doctors, researchers and brave people who dared to push the boundaries in the search for a cure Some impressively tenacious people hav [...]


  6. This is an approachable and sympathetic look at the development and progression of cancer therapies from the earliest recorded cases through to the state of the art in 2011 It is well written and referenced, and is very useful from a teaching perspective, explaining complex concepts in a clear way using effective analogies It is well worth reading by any scientist or clinician with an interest in cancer.My only slight criticism is that it is very US centric, skating over the huge influence UK, E [...]
