Reviews

A fascinating account of an impossibly arrogant scientific genius, his collision with the monster Adolph Hitler, and the revolutions in cancer research. Sam Apple, a lively stylist, handles these complex, braided narrative threads with clarity, insight, and a nose for the paradoxical and absurd. The result is a genuine contribution to science writing and a model for how to do contemporary nonfiction.--Phillip Lopate
While tobacco-induced cancer deaths continue to decline, the second major cause of cancer moves to center stage: obesity. Few realize its profound importance in causing cancer. Sam Apple has written an endlessly interesting and carefully researched book.--Robert A. Weinberg, PhD, Director, MIT Ludwig Center for Molecular Oncology
