Merrill Garnett is a true original--a person in pursuit of a profoundly humane goal along career and personal paths quite unlike anyone else I have ever met. Merrill is one of the rare individuals for whom "doing well by doing good" isn't a superficial slogan but rather is truly second nature. In this book Merrill has produced a fascinating, intensely personal account of his 40 year quest for effective cancer treatments.I'm sure most readers will react to the book as I did. I was engaged and captivated--both at the personal and at the scientific levels. In this era of beaurocratized science, people like Merrill are increasingly rare and increasingly important. Readers are treated to a deep, clear look into this world. -- Paul Bingham, Department of Biochemistry & Cell Biology, State University of New York at Stony Brook -- Publisher Comments --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
