Shortlisted for 2014's Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books, George Johnson's The Cancer Chronicles: Unlocking Medicine's Deepest Mystery is a vibrantly informative and provocative look at the war against cancer - from the age of dinosaurs through to today and beyond.

When the woman he loved was diagnosed with a metastatic cancer, science-writer George Johnson embarked on a journey to learn everything he could about the disease and the people who dedicate their lives to understanding and combatting it.

What he discovered is that a revolution is now under way - an explosion of new ideas about what cancer really is and where it comes from.

His luminous accounts describe tumors that evolve like alien creatures inside the body, paleo-oncologists who uncover petrified tumors clinging to the skeletons of dinosaurs and ancient human ancestors, and the surprising reversals in science's comprehension of the causes of cancer, with the foods we eat and environmental toxins playing a lesser role.
