This week, CBS Sunday Morning focuses on one of the most dreaded diseases, cancer, reporting on its history, treatments, and survivors.

Two of the stories have book connections, and are included in a lengthy web resources page.

The best-known title is Siddhartha Mukherjee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer (S&S/Scribner, 2010; S&S Audio; OverDrive Sample).

Mukherjee is featured in one of the segments. He says one of the earliest cures, surgery, was made possible because of the development of anesthesia.

A piece about nutrition features Margaret I. Cuomo, MD, author of
A World without Cancer: The Making of a New Cure and the Real Promise of Prevention, (Macmillan/Rodale, 2012; Blackstone Audio; OverDrive Sample).
