Mukherjee’s sweeping biography of cancer stretches from its earliest mentions in the historical record to the latest in treatments and covers many advancements and missteps along the way. Although Stephen Hoye’s narration is not immediately striking, it complements Mukherjee’s work well. Hoye presents even the more complicated medical procedures with a clarity of speech that allows for easy understanding by any listener, even one not well versed in the science of cancer. This is an ambitious work but one that is very accessible and is made even more so by Hoye’s narration. J.L.K. 2012 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2010]
