Eloquently written, passionate, sad, joyous, and above all politically engaged, the book is an epiphany. It shows us how health and disease are socially made, and how disease priorities are set in ­societies by larger economic and political forces. And that we as people will collectively have to claim our futures. It is compulsory reading for all health workers, public health researchers, and indeed, the general public. My sister was recently diagnosed to have multiple ­myeloma. She will learn a lot from this book, including courage and daring.
