I think the idea is wonderful and could be very helpful to others, but this book is not ready for prime time. It is littered with inappropriate use of punctuation, grammar mistakes and poor sentence construction which makes it difficult to read and enjoy. The writer shouldn't give up, but she needs a writing group for feedback, a grammar book and an editor to turn this great idea into a readable book.

I chose this book because I was diagnosed with breast cancer last week. I was looking for a story from someone who had been there, someone I could read about who had experienced already what my future will be.
This is the best, no nonsense, straight forward, humorous, painful account of the journey through the world of breast cancer that I have found.
I am recommending it to my mom, sister, and daughter so they can have a better sense of my journey that cancer has embarked me upon.
If you are among the 12 percent of women who will ride this train with the author and I, then I suggest you get a copy of this book before leaving the station.

This may be a great, inspiring read for someone diagnosed with breast cancer, or an individual close to such a patient. It has a happy ending and is rich in medical detail without being overly clinical. However, the pacing is extremely slow, weighed down by the mundaneness of a nice person's rather ordinary life.

Not a professional writer, but the book is readable. Touching to read how a young woman (with a young family) deals with a potentially life-threatening disease. I admire her courage in signing up for the clinical trial and sticking to the terms, even though it meant undergoing chemo. Frankly, I'm not sure I would have the guts!

Provided great insight into the emotions as well as the day to day physical challenges, fears, expectations and impact on a family's life that the diagnosis, treatment and battle with cancer can have.

The detail was helpful, but at times a burden to get through. A little more perspective from the children would have been a benefit.

Overall, very enlightening and I benefitted greatly by reading it as I now have a better understanding and appreciation for those unfortunate victims and their families who find themselves in a battle with this dreaded condition. I thank the writer for sharing her experience and feelings.

This story makes you rethink what is important in your life. It wasn't especially gripping but it was an honest telling of the difficult journey she went through - I think was worth reading.

Choosing to read a book with such a heart-wrenching and terrifying subject as this is something that I would normally shy away from. However, 'An Inconvenient Year' was recommended to me, and after initially starting to read with a wincing expression and one eye closed I quickly found myself drawn in by Yvonne's account. I was ignorant enough to think that cancer simply meant illness, chemo and hair-loss but I soon learned that that's just a small part of it. I had never heard the facts about how it affects family, children, partners and friends. Yvonne shares her experience with honesty and openess, the accounts of her thoughts and actions even making me laugh aloud sometimes. I read the book in three sittings, feeling very humbled when I turned the last page. I would recommend this book to anyone - whether cancer has touched their life or not.

Yvonne is very candid in sharing her year of treatments. While what she shares is not news, it is her handling of it that makes it worth reading. If you haven't read anyone's account this is good place to start.
