Siddhartha Mukherjee’s “The Emperor of All Maladies”

I recently finished reading Siddhartha Mukherjee’s The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer. I recommend it highly to those who want to know more about cancer.

It’s a long and challenging read, but it’s worth it. The main thing I learned: cancer is a many-headed hydra. Each type of cancer is a different disease that requires a different type of treatment.

The rich, the well-connected, the privileged, and the powerful have given themselves the society that they deserve. The rest of us deserve better.

Northfield Cohousing Community - Tue, 11/24/2009 - 5:34pm

The cohousing design discussion on November 5, 2009, was well-attended and lively conversation sprouted afterward. Attendees included ages from very young to retirement-age, which is a perfect match for our goals for our community.

In February, we will be offering a Community Ed course in four sessions for those who would like more information. Also, stay tuned to this blog for more opportunities to engage!
