Format: Paperback
This is volume 2 of a two-volume set. Just like the first volume, it is an essential "navigation" guide for patients with one of the deadliest cancers. The book is logically organized, gives all the necessary information and almost nothing is missing. I am brain cancer patient and I recommend this book. This book and a book by Ben Williams, Surviving "Terminal" Cancer should be on the bookshelf of every GBM patient. This book gave me hope and the strength to endure.

Added April 2008
I thought I knew the measure of my days; if I were lucky the measure of my days would be a year or so. Three years after my GBM was diagnosed I am alive and well. Both of Dr. Zeltzer,s books guided me along the way. If you read his books you or your loved one will have choices, will be informed, will be empowered, all required for knowing what steps to take and what to do next. Please buy this book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased both of Paul Zeltzer's volumes on brain tumors for my niece, who had recently graduated from college when her brain tumor was diagnosed. Her mother had already helped her find an excellent neurosurgeon, but my niece said that Zeltzer's book, Leaving the Garden of Eden, told her what would happen before, during, and after the surgery accurately and in detail.

Now that she has started radiation, she carries Zeltzer's Finding the Ark with her into her appointments with her radiation oncologist and nurses, and she has repeatedly told me that it is a very good book.

I am glad other information in Finding the Ark will be available(about long term adjustment, health insurance, Social Security disability) when she is ready for it.

We both noticed that Finding the Ark was published in 2006. We hope that it will be updated over the next few years.
