Description: Having focused his microscope on people's cells for over twenty-five years, surgical pathologist Spencer Nadler now comes out from behind his microscope to focus instead on people, illuminating how a person's spirit and cells coexist. In this wonderful book, Nadler takes us on a journey into the tiny, beautiful, and sometimes deadly world of cells, and into the lives of the people affected by them. In the diminutive landscape of the microscope, sickle cells look like apples and bananas, but their impact on a young patient and his mother are acute. The visually alluring cells of breast cancer look like pink hydrangeas, but they present a challenge for Hanna, a woman with a remarkable spirit. Illuminating cells as well as character, personality, the strength of the human spirit and the will to live, Nadler shows how orchestra conductor Mehli Mehta chooses between the rhythms of his orchestral music and those of his heart; how a woman and her fat cells learn to get along, and to cope with bariatric surgery; how cells appear in the brain of a patient with Alzheimer's. Beautifully written, The Language of Cells illuminates cells, and life.
