While I always seem to have a stack of books to read, I’m always thrilled when books come out that somehow have me manage to ignore that pile in order to delve into them. Tomorrow (February 24th), two such books will be available here in the US.
The first is p53: The Gene that Cracked the Cancer Code by Sue Armstrong, a writer based in the UK (where this book has already been out for a few weeks.) Being a cell biologist, I am so excited to read the narrative Sue has written about this very important gene that is central to keeping us cancer free. It is such a well-studied gene that there are certainly many important scientists and physicians playing a role in the book.
