Books to read before a new semester
We are closing in on a new semester at Semmelweis University. My summer was spent working, travelling to Asia and reading some fantastic books.
The book that made the strongest impression on me was:
The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer
By Siddhartha Mukherjee
You can read more about dr Mukherjee and his book here: An Oncologist Writes ‘A Biography Of Cancer’
After finishing this majestic piece of work I realized dr Mukherjee was awarded the Pulitzer Prize (named after a Hungarian!) for 2011: The Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction 2011
For those of you that want to find other great biographies in medicine, I recomment the following page/blog entry:
Let me know if you have any medical books you recommend!
