Salt Lake City, Utah – Wednesday on RadioWest, a biography of cancer. Doctor Siddhartha Mukherjee's book explores the disease that will kill 7 million humans around the world this year. Part of the book is history, but it's also about culture, imagination, hubris and false hope. Mukherjee says he's trying to enter the mind of cancer, to understand its behavior and consider whether we'll ever really rid ourselves of the most elemental and majesterial disease of our species.
