Glorious story of the ongoing courageous fight against the Monster
11 April, 2013
A dark depressing topic made available to the uninitiated in a way that it is both easy to absorb and decipher - this is a chronicle of how cancer and more importantly cancer treatment has evolved. It is a fine tribute to man's unending pursuit of this two millenium old challenge posed to science and medicine in all forms. The reading of this book is also a fine lesson in humility in terms of how staying ahead of the monster requires quantum steps that have always been so near yet so far. The reasoning on why cancer is so different for any other form of ailment that has ever surfaced is plain and lucidly explained right at the start and what must be commended here is the author's perseverance even as he browses centuries of cancer chronicles dissecting every effort, placing it on record for both its merit and where it fell short and how every step is taking us closer to answering this one nagging question that medical science has been faced with. This book also takes your regard for oncologists a couple of notches higher when you discover their incessant fight with the unavoidable. We need more such works on cancer as we near the solution.
