I just started reading one of the most interesting books I have recently enjoyed about the history of cancer. Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of “The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer,” tells the narrative about the history of the search for ways to treat cancer and how it has been perceived.

Dr. Mukherjee has been interviewed about his book, “The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer” and a video of the interview can be viewed at this link.

I recommend that the video be viewed, and then, if you are interested you read the book. It is not going to teach you about prostate cancer, or any specific cancer, but it is not only interesting, but it also provides a prospective about our fight against cancer.
