“It's a small book, and a quick read, although not always an easy one. But it's worth the trouble. And while it made me sad, it also made me smile. I appreciated the poet’s heroic refusal to sugar coat the experience or tie a pretty pink bow around her pain and loss.” (HuffingtonPost.com)
"Plain-spoken, mordantly funny free-verse observations about things they don't tell you about 'in the helpful cancer books,' as Myers writes." (Pittsburgh City Paper)
“With one in every eight women getting breast cancer, bookstores and libraries are full of serious cancer memoirs, making Myers’ darkly comic entry about her diagnosis and recovery a much-needed addition to the list.” (Publisher’s Weekly)
“Artist and writer Myers ‘decided early on to see the humor in [her] situation, to laugh in the face of fear.’ Her poetic approach to her cancer journey will buoy those going through the same experience and grant them permission to face cancer in whatever way that works.” (Library Journal)
“Micki Myers is a lady after my own heart. To eradicate her breast cancer, she endured a bilateral mastectomy, underwent chemo therapy and managed to maintain her brilliant sense of humor. Her book, It’s Probably Nothing . . . Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Implants is an extraordinary account of her experience, written entirely in verse. You’ll find yourself both nodding and chuckling as you read her brief vignettes.” (The Guardian (UK))
“Micki Myers’s book about breast cancer tells it like it is, with stark honesty and humor. It’s Probably Nothing is recommended to breast cancer sufferers.” (Maduhlika Sikka, author of A Breast Cancer Alphabet)
“Myers walks a perilous line without a misstep into either of the chasms flanking it: flippancy on the one side or pathos on the other. Intelligent, funny and truthful.” (Alison Gordon, novelist)
“I’m not sure how to describe why I love this book so much, but I never thought anyone else would suspect that I recklessly practiced my Formula 1 skills on the way to and from radiation treatments. Every page I turned, every poem I read, made me think ‘Hell, yes! I wish I wrote that!’ Micki Myers make a direct hit with every observation, and I love her voice. A fantastic book.” (Julia Selinger, breast cancer activist)
