Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bonner, who calls herself the Question Doctor, teaches CEOs how to be more effective by asking the right questions and is on the graduate business faculty at George Washington University and Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia. After interviewing a number of experts in breast cancer oncology and surgery as well as in other fields, she divides her topic into three sections: Talking with Your Medical Team, Choosing Treatments and Living Your Life (including emotional, financial and social well-being). In each chapter, Bonner presents 10 important questions (as well as well-researched answers), and an additional Magic Question that many people never ask but later wish they had. Noting that a well-educated patient has the best chance of survival, Bonner encourages readers to become actively involved in their own care and to develop a communicative relationship with their cancer care team. Along with incisive questions, Bonner offers tips on how to be politely insistent to ensure questions get the responses they deserve. A chapter also addresses questions the reader might ask herself, and ways to impart the news of a breast cancer diagnosis to children (i.e., in an age-appropriate, honest and forthright manner). This will be a valuable guide for those with cancer as well as their families. Regrettably, 10 best questions regarding lifestyle and nutrition choices are not sufficiently addressed. (Oct.)

This is one of the most helpful books available on breast cancer today. Dr. Bonner gets to the heart of the questions you need to know and ask regarding a breast cancer diagnosis. Her book was tremendoulsy helpful during my own journey with breast cancer as well as when I conducted research for my book Diagnosis: Breast Cancer - The Best Action Plan for Navigating Your Journey (Volume 1). Thank you Dr. Bonner for helping to empower patients!

My minister who had breast cancer about a year before I was diagnosed, loaned this book to me. When she left I returned the book and ordered one so I'd have it in my library. It was very helpful so that I knew questions to ask my oncologist, surgeon and radiation oncologist. I am the type of person who wants to know everything I can about a disease I had and could have again. Since my tumor was estrogen receptive, I take generic Arimidex for 5 years to help prevent the breast cancer from returning.
