My husband is just finishing his radiation treatments for cancer
of the head and neck.This book was invaluable to help me
to understand the treatments and what to expect with my
caregiving. Anyone undergoing treatment should read, "The Best
News About Radiation Therapy; How to Cope and Survive", by Carol
L. Kornmehl, MD, FACRO.

Excellent Book
This book is written so a non-medical person can comprehend this difficult subject. The book is one of a kind. A must for anyone who needs radiation therapy. A great motivator for hope in a world of dispair.

Besides being easy to read and understand, the virtual tour of radiation therapy via the clear photos in the book rendered "Best News" an asset. There are no boring graphs or tables, just reader friendly information.

Dr. Kornmehl uses lots of clinical vignettes througout The Best News, to which people can relate and derive a sense of light through the darkness.
