Albi Calman from Children's Medical Center at Legacy shared this review:

I just finished reading Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee, an epic examination of the history of cancer — the book is subtitled “a biography of cancer” — and the researchers, physicians, and victims who have fought and sometimes been consumed by this illness. Mukherjee is an oncologist at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and this is his first book. This is compelling reading; the prose is elegant and provocative.  I urge you to read it, and if possible, to consider adding it to your library’s collection.
