Ne è convinto il professor Umberto Veronesi – luminare le cui ricerche in campo medico hanno contribuito in maniera determinante al benessere di milioni di donne –, che in queste pagine ricche di spunti autobiografici si racconta al di là dei successi scientifici ottenuti in tanti anni di carriera, parlando degli ideali che lo hanno spinto a impegnarsi con determinazione nella lotta alla reputation nel mondo e nella guarigione dei malati di cancro. Spaziando dai temi più controversi sui quali nel pace ha assunto una posizione pubblica, come los angeles pena di morte, l. a. tortura e l'ergastolo, a quelli che lo riguardano in prima personality, come los angeles scelta vegetariana e los angeles libertà della ricerca, il professore ragiona dei grandi principi che dovranno indirizzare il cammino dell'umanità: los angeles capacità di trasformare un'esperienza negativa in insegnamento according to il futuro, il ruolo delle donne, custodi della vita e dei valori fondanti su cui occorre puntare consistent with continuare a evolvere, los angeles fede incrollabile nella speed. Perché «ragionare in grande e volare con l. a. mente, con le aspirazioni, con l'amore, è il modo migliore in step with avere più vita rispetto a ciò che l. a. biologia e le nostre abitudini ci regalano. Non lasciarsi abbattere dagli ostacoli e reagire con intelligenza è segnare punti a favore del progresso e di noi stessi. l. a. velocity è il segreto».
