I thought we could use this thread to recommend books on health related topics.
Among my favorites so far: The transformed cell by Dr. Steven A. Rosenberg: https://www.amazon.com/Transformed-Cell-Unlocking-Mysteries-Cancer/dp/0380721155/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1477309146&sr=8-1&keywords=the+transformed+cell
. Although it's a bit old now, it is a very inspirational story on the beginning of immunotherapy against cancer. It's been incredible to read the first hand experience of this doctor, all the challenges he went through and how he overcame them.
Here is a newer one: Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of cancer by Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee: https://www.amazon.com/Emperor-All-Maladies-Biography-Cancer/dp/1439170916/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1477308517&sr=8-1&keywords=cancer+all+maladies
. I am still reading it, so far very good.
What are your favorites, recommendations and reasons why you like them? I would love to hear from you too. Thank you.
