Siddhartha Mukherjee – The Cancer Puzzle

Yesterday I had a conversation with a physician colleague who is reading Dr. Mukherjee’s spectacular “biography” of cancer, The Emperor of All Maladies,” reviewed here about a month ago. He commented that the book was so broad and deep in its ambition as to be almost incomprehensible, especially from an author still so young and while conducting all the duties associated with being a newly minted doctor.Then I ran across this 20 minute presentation by Dr. Mukherjee. It’s a worthwhile glimpse into the mind of this very impressive author, as well as an interesting update on the status of cancer knowledge.
