Format: Paperback
Written by two nurses who understand the questions patients have before and during chemotherapy or radiation therapy, this book is very easy to read but doesn't skimp on technical details when necessary. The chapters cover basics about the treatment, how to deal with side-effects, getting good nutrition, support, and bone-marrow transplants. I work at a Cancer Center and our patients really like this book because it de-mystifies the process and helps guide them through from beginning to end. There is comfort in knowing what is coming and they feel reassured to know that there are ways to deal with just about everything that may come their way. Since our patients are usually very interested in mind/body techniques during chemotherapy, I especially like the chapters on Mind/Body techniques, relaxation and visualization. The authors seem to know just what patients are looking for and what they need.

I found this book very informative, and it makes the idea of going into this type of therapy less frightening and "unknown". I am purchasing several more for people I know who are receiving chemotherapy too, so they can have access to this same knowledge. Special thanks to those who took the time to make this book available.

I bought this book expecting information for dealing with radiation. There was very little information on radiation at all. The book may be useful for Chemotherapy patients (which is why I give it two stars). It had no stars of value for me dealing with radiation. My doctor told me more. "Cancer for dummies" and "just get me through this" have more information.

After my dad's recent diagnosis of colorectal cancer, I purchased a ton of books about his cancer & treatments. This one is the best one I've purchased so far. My dad refers to it daily to check his symtoms & even just to get alittle more educated on what he should be expecting. VERY beneficial to have.

Format: Paperback
Since my diagnosis three weeks ago I have checked out and read every book on chemo and radiation in my county's library system. This is by far the best - it's the only one I decided to go out and purchase so I could keep it around for reference. The advice is very down to earth and practical. The authors' knowledge and practical experience is evident on each page. The diagnosis of cancer sent me into an information seeking frenzy - I'm glad that I found this one right away as it de-mystified a lot of things for me. Read this one first!

Format: Paperback
There is so much conflicting information out there but this book is helpful and nonjudgmental. In other words they are not guilt tripping you about how you brought this illness on yourself. Nor do they advise you to start eating juiced spinach when you can hardly handle pudding. They tell you what to expect with the chemo and ways to deal with various problems. A great resource book.
