Leffall Autobiography Becomes Publisher’s All-Time Best Seller

The autobiography of LaSalle D. Leffall Jr., entitled No Boundaries: A Cancer Surgeon’s Odyssey, has now become the all-time leading best seller at Howard University Press. The book, published last September, tells of Leffall’s struggle to succeed in a white man’s world and of his career-long battle in the fight against cancer. In addition to a long career at the Howard University School of Medicine, Leffall was the first African-American president of the American College of Surgeons and the American Cancer Society. He currently serves as chair of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
