SummaryAdd a Summary
A really, really long book about the history of cancer. It's well written and interesting BUT VERY INTENSE. I would really like this book if I could read a couple of chapters, put it down and then read a couple more chapters in a month. It's got very specialized vocab that I don't always understand, but even so, I really know much more about cancer than I ever thought I could learn.
