    Inhaltsangabe

    A magnificent, beautifully written "biography" of cancer - from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles to cure, control, and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence.

    The Emperor of All Maladies reveals the many faces of an iconic, shape-shifting disease that is the defining plague of our generation. The story of cancer is a story of human ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance but also of hubris, arrogance, paternalism, and misperception, all leveraged against a disease that, just three decades ago, was thought to be easily vanquished in an all-out "war against cancer". Mukherjee recounts centuries of discoveries, setbacks, victories, and deaths, told through the eyes of his predecessors and peers, training their wits against an infinitely resourceful adversary. The audiobook is like a literary thriller with cancer as the central character.

    From the Persian Queen Atossa, whose Greek slave may have cut off her diseased breast, to the 19th-century recipients of primitive radiation and chemotherapy to Mukherjee's own leukemia patient, Carla, The Emperor of All Maladies is about the people who have soldiered through toxic, bruising, and draining regimens in order to survive - and to increase the store of human knowledge.

    Exceptional read

    The depth of the research is baffling and reminds Rebecca Scloots story of Henrietta Lacks. How do you find time to write such a intriguing, nuanced and deep history of cancer research. As biology student I went on a beautiful journey through names and ideas that dominated the past and coined the present where I find myself learning some few abstract concepts. It is so important to teach ideas and not only memorising facts. And the vocabulary of Sid is just ridiculous. An absolute must, loved it until the last letter.

    Die Geißel der Menscheit

    Siddharta Mukherjee hat eine grandiose Biographie über die Plage geschrieben, die uns noch ein Weilchen verfolgen wird. Die vielen Denkschulen in ihren Irrtümern, Glücksfällen. Die Entstehung von Lebensrettenden Medikamenten, die Kämpfe seiner Patienten, der Kampf von Jimmy und natürlich den Ärzten, die so oft hilflos zusehen müssen.
    Eindringlich und spannend führt er uns durch die Geschichte der seit Jahrtausenden größten und gefinkeldten Geißel, die immer wieder in vielen Gesichtern zurückkehrt: Ja, carcinosa, Krebs...
