DeVita presents a telling story in the first chapter. His friend Lee receives a diagnosis of an aggressive form of prostate cancer. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic refuse to operate because the cancer is too advanced.

His doctors recommend watchful waiting. Instead, DeVita gets Lee enrolled in a clinical trial.

After treatment, Lee goes into a near remission, but about a year later, he has a full-blown relapse. At this point many doctors would advocate a purely palliative approach, but not DeVita.

He is then put into another study, but the experimental treatment fails to achieve remission. By then the cancer has spread to his lungs and bones. He is given another experimental drug but develops severe diarrhea as a side effect.

He tries to get Lee one more experimental drug, abiraterone, but the company that manufactures it and guidelines from the Food and Drug Administration refuse to allow it to be used in patients with prostate cancer that is so far advanced.

Without further options, Lee is finally admitted into hospice care and dies two weeks later at home. He is a general on the front lines of a war.

He gives an authoritative review of the history of surgery and radiation therapy. His depictions of the behind-the-scenes search for new cancer drugs and the turf wars between radiation, surgical and medical oncologists are dishy and fascinating.

He tells many poignant anecdotes, like one about a year-old cancer patient who gives DeVita a cent piece because he puts in her intravenous line on the first try. Guidance on managing every type of cancer, while incorporating recent treatment advances.

The most effective strategies for managing every type of cancer by stage of presentation. Balanced, multidisciplinary advice from a surgeon, a medical oncologist, and a radiation oncologist.

Important related topics such as cancer screening and prevention, palliative care, supportive oncology, and quality of life issues. DeVita, Hellman, and Rosenberg's Cancer: Test Drive.

He reminds us that we cannot do what we do if we are not optimistic about the death of cancer. It is a history from someone who was there, making history.

He said that opera was very therapeutic during the high stress times on the job, and that he believes that to succeed, NCI directors have an obligation to be a spokesperson for the field and should speak up on clinical issues.
