About this book
The history of the scientific advances in our battle behind cancer. Similar to "The Emperor of Maladies" by Siddhartha Mukherjee, although this approaches the subject from a scientific rather than popular history perspective.
Despite the medical advances of the last century, the science behind cancer and its treatment remains a mystery to many people. In Betrayed by Nature, Robin Hesketh provides a concise and comprehensive history of both the science and the medical advances. It is also an illuminating look at the future of one of the world's oldest killers.
