George Johnson is a New York Times science journalist and author (The Ten Most Beautiful Experiments; In The Palaces of Memory) but his research into the cancer was not begun as a magazine assignment or a book project. It was much more personal: The woman he loved had been diagnosed with a metastatic cancer. What he discovered in his far-ranging inquiries was in many cases heartening; in example after example, he shows how cutting-edge science has exposed the processes and potential vulnerabilities of the cancers that prey on so many of us. Informed bedside reading; editor's recommendation.
