The Book

Cancer is the second biggest killer in the world, but few of us understand how it works or how we treat it. In this illuminating introduction, Paul Scotting explains the science behind the disease and explores why some of us are more likely to develop it than others. Arguing that we're in a new age of understanding that will revolutionise the fight against cancer, Scotting discusses cutting-edge developments and maps out the promising future strategies for its prevention, treatment, and cure.
