The Gene
The #1 NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller The basis for the PBS Ken Burns Documentary The Gene: An Intimate History 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). "Sid Mukherjee has the uncanny ability to bring together science, history, and the future in a way that is understandable and riveting, guiding us through both time and the mystery of life itself." –Ken Burns “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).

A Cancer in the Family
A Kirkus Best Book of 2016 Oncologist and cancer gene hunter Theo Ross delivers the first authoritative, go-to for people facing a genetic predisposition for cancer There are 13 million people with cancer in the United States, and it's estimated that about 1.3 million of these cases are hereditary. Yet despite advanced training in cancer genetics and years of practicing medicine, Dr. Theo Ross was never certain whether the history of cancers in her family was simple bad luck or a sign that they were carriers of a cancer-causing genetic mutation. Then she was diagnosed with melanoma, and for someone with a dark complexion, melanoma made no sense. It turned out there was a genetic factor at work. Using her own family's story, the latest science of cancer genetics, and her experience as a practicing physician, Ross shows readers how to spot the patterns of inherited cancer, how to get tested for cancer-causing genes, and what to do if you have one. With a foreword by Siddartha Mukherjee, prize winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies, this will be the first authoritative, go-to for people facing inherited cancer, this book empowers readers to face their genetic heritage without fear and to make decisions that will keep them and their families healthy.

Gen
Apa yang membentuk diri, kehidupan, sifat, bahkan nasib manusia? Pencarian selama ribuan tahun menunjukkan adanya unsur pembawa pewarisan sifat antargenerasi makhluk hidup, termasuk manusia. Ternyata unsur itu bukan sesuatu yang gaib, bukan bintang-bintang jauh, melainkan ada dalam diri kita, berwujud fi sik sehingga bisa ditemukan upaya sains: gen, instruksi pembentukan dan pengoperasian tubuh yang tertulis di molekul asam deoksiribonukleat (DNA) di seluruh sel kita. Sejarah gen, mulai dari gagasan awal, perumusan prinsip, penemuan struktur, sampai rekayasanya, disampaikan melalui kisah para pencarinya, dari Aristoteles dan Mendel, Watson dan Crick, hingga saintis abad ke-21. Dan sesudah mengetahui mengenai gen dan pengaruhnya bagi hidup, kepribadian, dan nasib, kita menghadapi tantangan sekaligus peluang: apa jadinya jika kita bisa mengetahui kecenderungan fi sik bawaan gen? Bisakah kehidupan diperbaiki dengan rekayasa gen? Siapkah kita memegang kemampuan mengubah nasib genetis umat manusia?

An exciting boxed set collection of must-have TED Books for any science reader—from medical professionals to armchair Internet doctors to sci-fi enthusiasts—an engaging and fresh look at the inner and outer world around us, including Follow Your Gut, How We’ll Live On Mars, and The Laws of Medicine. Allergies, obesity, acne: these are just a few of the conditions that may be caused—and someday cured—by the microscopic life inside us. How does this groundbreaking science influence your health, mood, and more? In Follow Your Gut pioneering scientist Rob Knight pairs with award-winning science journalist Brendan Buhler to explain why these new findings matter to everyone. In How We’ll Live on Mars award-winning journalist Stephen Petranek considers what sounds like science fiction as fact: within twenty years, humans will live on Mars. In fact, we’ll need to. In this sweeping, provocative book that mixes business, science, and human reporting, Petranek makes the case that living on Mars is an essential back-up plan for humanity, and he explains in fascinating detail just how it will happen. The Laws of Medicine is essential, required reading for doctors and patients alike: Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Emperor of Maladies and one of the world’s premiere cancer researchers, Siddhartha Mukherjee reveals an urgent philosophy on the little-known principles that govern medicine—and how understanding these principles can empower us all.

EMPEROR OF ALL MALADIES IN PB
A magnificent, beautifully written biography of cancer - from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles to cure, control and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence. In The Emperor of All Maladies, Siddhartha Mukherjee, doctor, researcher and award-winning science writer, examines cancer with a cellular biologist's precision, a historian's perspective, and a biographer's passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived with - and perished from - for more than five thousand years.The story of cancer is a story of human ingenuity, resilience and perseverance, but also of hubris, arrogance and misperception, all leveraged against a disease that, just three decades ago, was thought to be easily vanquished in an all-out `war against cancer'. Mukherjee recounts centuries of discoveries, setbacks, victories and deaths, told through the eyes of predecessors and peers, training their wits against an infinitely resourceful adversary.From the Persian Queen Atossa, whose Greek slave cut off her malignant breast, to the nineteeth-century recipient of primitive radiation and chemotherapy and Mukherjee's own leukemia patient, Carla, The Emperor of All Maladies is about the people who have soldiered through toxic, bruising, and draining regimes to survive and to increase the store of human knowledge.Riveting and magesterial, The Emperor of All Maladies provides a fascinating glimpse into the future of cancer treatments and a brilliant new perspective on the way doctors, scientists, philosophers and lay people have observed and understood the human body for millennia.
