Emperor of All Maladies coverThe Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee — Helps explain why there is no single war on cancer, because cancer is not one thing. And making the battle even harder is that cancer evolves. Cancer evolves making promising cures ineffective. It is the dark side of life and will remain a part of our lives, because it is created from our lives. The book won the Pulitzer Prize for general non-fiction in 2011.

206 Bones by Kathy Reichs — Still searching for writers similar to Michael Crichton, one of may favorite authors. This was my first book by Reichs, and the writing style reminded of author Robert B. Parker.
