The Cancer Chronicles : Unlocking Medicine's Deepest Mystery by George Johnson, 284 pages, read by Kira, on 08/31/2013

canc chronThis book starts out interesting enough.  Did you know they’ve found cancer in Dinosaurs brains? and that mammals are more likely to get cancer than reptiles.  But it ends there.  No mysteries were unlocked, no important information to take away.  I was really hoping for something along the lines of Racing to a Cure, where the author looks at a type of vaccine, where they take your fighter blood cells, expose them to the cancer and then inject them back in your body, and the fighter blood cells, then do a much better job of attacking the cancer.

This book didn’t leave you with any take-away information (just stuff you likely already knew).canchron
