A new e-book, "Cancer's Global Footprint: The Economics of a Disease" by Joanne Silberner, examines the disease that kills and maims millions in the developing world, but receives nearly no attention or funding: cancer. Featuring reporting from PRI's The World, Seattle Globalist, and the Pulitzer Center, the multimedia e-book's audio, video and infographics allow the reader to comprehend the scope of the issue through individual stories. Silberner's dispatches also provide a behind-the-scenes look into what goes into reporting a global story. Available on Amazon and browsers for free.
