One response to “Bookshelf: The Cancer Chronicles by George Johnson”

    Thanks so much for this, Kendall. Based on your review, I went to hear George Johnson do a reading last night at the University of Washington bookstore. Afterwards, a group of local science writers took him out for a drink, and he graciously shared some fascinating insights about the book and his science writing process. Very glad I went.
