THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A New York Times Notable Book A Washington Post and Seattle Times Best Book of the Year From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies—a fascinating history of the gene and “a magisterial account of how human minds have laboriously, ingeniously picked apart what makes us tick” (Elle). “Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee dazzled readers with his Pulitzer Prize-winning The Emperor of All Maladies in 2010. That achievement was evidently just a warm-up for his virtuoso performance in The Gene: An Intimate History, in which he braids science, history, and memoir into an epic with all the range and biblical thunder of Paradise Lost” (The New York Times). In this biography Mukherjee brings to life the quest to understand human heredity and its surprising influence on our lives, personalities, identities, fates, and choices. “Mukherjee expresses abstract intellectual ideas through emotional stories…[and] swaddles his medical rigor with rhapsodic tenderness, surprising vulnerability, and occasional flashes of pure poetry” (The Washington Post). Throughout, the story of Mukherjee’s own family—with its tragic and bewildering history of mental illness—reminds us of the questions that hang over our ability to translate the science of genetics from the laboratory to the real world. In riveting and dramatic prose, he describes the centuries of research and experimentation—from Aristotle and Pythagoras to Mendel and Darwin, from Boveri and Morgan to Crick, Watson and Franklin, all the way through the revolutionary twenty-first century innovators who mapped the human genome. “A fascinating and often sobering history of how humans came to understand the roles of genes in making us who we are—and what our manipulation of those genes might mean for our future” (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel), The Gene is the revelatory and magisterial history of a scientific idea coming to life, the most crucial science of our time, intimately explained by a master. “The Gene is a book we all should read” (USA TODAY).

En 2010, siete millones de personas murieron de cáncer en todo el mundo. Con esta fría estadística Siddhartha Mukherjee, médico e investigador oncológico, arranca su amplia y absorbente «biografía» de una de las enfermedades más extendidas de nuestro tiempo. El emperador de todos los males es una crónica completa del cáncer desde sus orígenes hasta los modernos tratamientos (quimioterapia de diversos tipos, radioterapia y cirugía, además de la prevención) que han surgido gracias a un siglo de investigación, ensayos y pequeños avances trascendentales en muchos lugares distintos. Este libro es un repaso a la ciencia del cáncer y a la historia de los tratamientos que le han hecho frente, pero también es una reflexión sobre la enfermedad, la ética médica y las complejas y entrelazadas vidas de los oncólogos y sus pacientes. La empatía que muestra Mukherjee hacia los enfermos de cáncer y sus familias, así como hacia los médicos que muy a menudo tan pocas esperanzas les pueden ofrecer, hacen de este libro una historia llena de humanidad de una enfermedad compleja e inasible. Reseñas: «Esta obra debería valer a Mukherjee un merecido lugar en el panteón de los grandes divulgadores de nuestra era, junto a Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould y Stephen Hawking.» The Boston Globe «Una magistral historia de la investigación sobre el cáncer.» Publishers Weekly

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A KICK-ASS FAIRY? Looking for a fairy tale to make into a musical? Look somewhere else. Linda Zercoe offers up a series of unfortunate events in a memoir that rivals the stories of the Brothers Grimm. Life can be capricious and cruel. In this memoir, the author-heroine faces family tragedy and battles multiple forms of cancer. Through one trial after another, Zercoe learns to harness her talents and powers and develop the strength, gumption and resilience to make a life worth living. Attitude is a potent charm against all forms of adversity, and this particular kick-ass fairy proves it's not what you've got, but what you do with it that counts. Reviews "An incredibly moving memoir. Linda Zercoe's book forces us to travel to an intimate and sometimes terrifying world of cancer - but never allows us to lose hope." --SIDDHARTHA MUKHERJEE, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, oncologist and researcher at Columbia University Medical Center, NY; author of The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction. "This book will give you a glimpse of what it's like to be affected by cancer and make you aware of how much more needs to be done to support patients and families with cancer and inherited malignancies." --MARGARET A. TEMPERO, M.D., Director, UCSF Pancreas Center; Leader, Pancreas Center Program; Professor of Medicine, Division of Hematology and Oncology, UCSF; The Rombauer Family Distinguished Professorship in Pancreas Cancer Clinical and Translational Science "Into each life some suffering comes, but Linda Zercoe has faced with bravery and hope more than her share, leaving the rest of us an awe-inspiring journey of perseverance and grit." --KEN BURNS, Award-winning filmmaker of historical documentaries including The Civil War, The Brooklyn Bridge, The Dust Bowl, Baseball. One of his current projects is a six-part series, Cancer: The Emperor of all Maladies coming to PBS in Spring 2015. "Linda Zercoe describes herself as a cancerian and a Cancer Warrior and in her memoir, it becomes clear why these are fitting designations for a woman with a hard shell who is soft inside, like her astrological symbol." --JEAN SHINODA BOLEN, M.D., author of Close to the Bone: Life Threatening Illness as a Soul Journey "I have learned that there is survival behavior and that a patient who exceeds expectations is not just lucky but has induced the changes and the behavior which led to their survival. Being a good patient means being a submissive sufferer and Linda is what I call a 'respant' or responsible participant who can be a life coach for us all." --BERNIE SIEGEL, M.D., author of A Book of Miracles and Faith, Hope & Healing

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE • Winner of The New York Public Library’s Helen Bernstein Book Award • “A new classic of science reporting.”—The New York Times The riveting true story of a small town ravaged by industrial pollution, Toms River melds hard-hitting investigative reporting, a fascinating scientific detective story, and an unforgettable cast of characters into a sweeping narrative in the tradition of A Civil Action, The Emperor of All Maladies, and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. One of New Jersey’s seemingly innumerable quiet seaside towns, Toms River became the unlikely setting for a decades-long drama that culminated in 2001 with one of the largest legal settlements in the annals of toxic dumping. A town that would rather have been known for its Little League World Series champions ended up making history for an entirely different reason: a notorious cluster of childhood cancers scientifically linked to local air and water pollution. For years, large chemical companies had been using Toms River as their private dumping ground, burying tens of thousands of leaky drums in open pits and discharging billions of gallons of acid-laced wastewater into the town’s namesake river. In an astonishing feat of investigative reporting, prize-winning journalist Dan Fagin recounts the sixty-year saga of rampant pollution and inadequate oversight that made Toms River a cautionary example for fast-growing industrial towns from South Jersey to South China. He tells the stories of the pioneering scientists and physicians who first identified pollutants as a cause of cancer, and brings to life the everyday heroes in Toms River who struggled for justice: a young boy whose cherubic smile belied the fast-growing tumors that had decimated his body from birth; a nurse who fought to bring the alarming incidence of childhood cancers to the attention of authorities who didn’t want to listen; and a mother whose love for her stricken child transformed her into a tenacious advocate for change. A gripping human drama rooted in a centuries-old scientific quest, Toms River is a tale of dumpers at midnight and deceptions in broad daylight, of corporate avarice and government neglect, and of a few brave individuals who refused to keep silent until the truth was exposed. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR AND KIRKUS REVIEWS “A thrilling journey full of twists and turns, Toms River is essential reading for our times. Dan Fagin handles topics of great complexity with the dexterity of a scholar, the honesty of a journalist, and the dramatic skill of a novelist.”—Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D., author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning The Emperor of All Maladies “A complex tale of powerful industry, local politics, water rights, epidemiology, public health and cancer in a gripping, page-turning environmental thriller.”—NPR “Unstoppable reading.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Meticulously researched and compellingly recounted . . . It’s every bit as important—and as well-written—as A Civil Action and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.”—The Star-Ledger “Fascinating . . . a gripping environmental thriller.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “An honest, thoroughly researched, intelligently written book.”—Slate “[A] hard-hitting account . . . a triumph.”—Nature “Absorbing and thoughtful.”—USA Today From the Hardcover edition.

Green fluorescent proteins have been floating in the ocean for more than 160 million years, but it took a curious scientist, fascinated by pinpricks of green light, to begin unlocking their potential. Now these jellyfish proteins have become one of the most important tools available to researchers in modern medicine and biology. By using them to illuminate other proteins that were previously invisible even under a microscope, scientists are now able to observe facets of disease that would have otherwise gone undetected. Green fluorescent proteins are used in over three million experiments a year and have proved invaluable for tasks such as tracking HIV, breeding bird flu-resistant chickens, and confirming the existence of cancerous stem cells. In Illuminating Disease, Marc Zimmer introduces us to these revolutionary proteins, acquainting readers both with the researchers responsible for the proteins' discovery as well as their wide utility. The book details the history of genetically modified fluorescent parasites and viruses, which provide scientists with lifesaving information about the spread of diseases. Green fluorescent proteins allow scientists and doctors to understand diseases better by quite literally illuminating various microscopic interactions occurring in living cells that otherwise would have gone unseen. The book is richly illustrated, showing the visually striking uses of green fluorescent proteins, and many of these scans have won awards in biological imaging competitions. An ideal introduction for students and advanced researchers alike, Illuminating Disease is an accessible yet deeply probing investigation into one of the most important developments in medical research of the last several decades.
