The way we treat cancer is about to change forever. This revolution—and it is precisely that—was sparked not by the invention of a new drug, but by the evolution of an entirely new way of thinking about and managing cancer. Going forward, doctors will not use pharmaceuticals to attack tumors – not directly. Rather, the oncologist will treat the patient’s immune system with a drug, and then the patient will treat the tumor.

Based entirely on interviews with the investigators, this book is the story of the IO pioneers. It’s a story of failure, resurrection, and success. It’s a story about science, it’s a story about discovery, and intuition, and cunning. It’s a peek into the lives and thoughts of some of the most gifted medical scientists on the planet.

This is not a textbook. This is a life book. This technology will save/is saving lives, and the book will celebrate the living, breathing, thinking, charming, arrogant, funny, obstinate, drinking-too-much, not-drinking-enough, amazing human beings who are making IO happen.
