think I'm deliberately downplaying this book (a solid 3) in order to counteract the Pulitzer-- Columbia publishes this book, and then Columbia awards itself a Pulitzer for doing so (the Pulitzer is administrated by Columbia).
very scientific/ very rationalist-materialist. Mukherjee doesn't go into holistic medicine or explain why different cultures have different cancer patterns. it's all laboratory science, both the best point and the worst of this long work.
