by Vincent T. DeVita Jr., Elizabeth DeVita-Raeburn
One of the world's most renowned and forward-thinking oncologists recounts 35 years of cancer research and tells us why we should be optimistic about the future... The author deftly navigates the many nuances of cancer research and treatment using accessible language to describe exciting technological advances while also providing a gritty look at the uneasy relationship between government and science… DeVita reports on this and myriad other issues facing cancer doctors and the patients they care for, imbuing his superb science writing with an emotional back story — including his own cancer diagnosis — that enriches the joys and struggles he has faced in his long career. This book is… a manifesto in which the author states plainly what needs to be done to eradicate the disease.
