5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent overview for the nonscientist and scientist, 16. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: One Renegade Cell: The Quest for the Origin of Cancer (Science Masters) (Taschenbuch)
As a scientist, I am familiar with most of the discoveries in cancer research discussed in the book. Weinberg nicely ties them together and explains how one exciting discovery in cancer research led to another. This is an excellent overview of what has been discovered about cancer and what is not known. Weinberg points out that many of the discoveries were from areas of research not directly related to cancer. This book should help the nonscientist understand the complexities of research and why so much time and resources have been required to uncover the mechanisms of cancer. I also highly recommend this book to students at all levels that are interested in any type of research.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Valuable survey of molecular generation of cancer, 18. Februar 2004
Rezension bezieht sich auf: One Renegade Cell: The Quest for the Origin of Cancer (Science Masters) (Taschenbuch)
Extremely informative, written in interesting form like a scientific novel, a systematic mini-survey of the molecular biology of cancer. Takes you through 30 years of discovery, explaining how false hopes were replaced by the discovery in laboratories of right pathways. Among the useful pieces of information you'll pick up: cancer cells are not destroyed by chemo and radiation, only some dna damage occurs. Unless the p53 gene is active, the tumor is not stopped, and Weinberg explains why. My wish: that Weinberg would next write a book about cancer treatments.
An aside: for those who are little enough informed to imagine that 'reductionism' is dead and of little or no use in the elucidation of complexity, the entire field of genetics and cancer discoveries is nothing but plain ol' reductionism applied to very long molecules. This book and any standard text on molecular biology provides evidence for the truth of my assertion.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A lucid, insightful account of biology gone bad, 16. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: One Renegade Cell: The Quest for the Origin of Cancer (Science Masters) (Taschenbuch)
Having read several books on the history and casues of cancer, I can honestly say that this was the most entertaining and insightfull. With the skill of a master technician, Weinberg carefully constructs step by step the processes that cause a normal human cell to turn rogue. He effortlessly weaves such topics as the viralological, carcinogenic and genetic causes of cancer to give the reader a clear and concise overview of the reasons for cancers existence. Along the way he also debunks several common myths about cancer (IE. that enviromental pollutnats are responsible for a large portion of human cancers). While its is not necessary to have a degree in biology to read this book, a general understanding of physiology and genetics (basic) certainly makes it more enjoyable. My only regret with this book was that it was a mere 170 pages long.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent overview of cancer's genetic mechanisms., 26. Dezember 1998
Von 
This a wonderful introduction to how cancer begins. It presents a fascinating history of the research involved in uncovering the underlying causes of cancer as well as acquainting the reader with the genetic underpinnings. Weinberg assumes no prior knowledge of cell biology or genetics and proceeds to skillfully lead the reader into some rather deep waters. By the end of the book the reader will have a very good grasp of what cancer is all about and will have gained an appreciation for the wonderous complexity of the cell's inner workings. I highly recommend this book to anyone blessed with a sense of curiosity. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best book about cancer's causes I've ever read, 5. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
A book I'd recommend to everyone. Robert Weinberg is obviously on the shortlist for a medicine Nobel, and with the acknowledged help of his US editor has produced a wonderfully lucid, exciting book about how science discovered what cancer is and how it works. The link to evolution and Darwinism (at the gene level) is perhaps surprising. but utterly crucial.
This is a *fabulous* time to be alive, if you're intelligent and enthralled by knowledge!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Fine Book, 23. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This is a phenomenal book. It is fascinating and well written. I would recommend it to anyone, including non-scientifically minded readers. If there were ten stars I would have given them.
