Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This expanded second edition includes updated information reflecting advances in breast cancer treatment made in the past decade. Weiss, a physician specializing in breast cancer and founder of Breastcancer.org, and her mother, a writer and breast cancer survivor, have included new chapters on mind-fog, bone health, intimacy and sex, as well as the latest on hormone therapies, drugs and other treatments, and diagnostic technology. The text also covers topics that seem more suited to those who have been recently diagnosed or are still undergoing treatment (i.e., choosing a physician, hair loss, breast reconstruction and traveling the maze of scans and tests). Some survivors may prefer to race to the later chapters, which focus on life style choices, environmental concerns and genetic factors, homing in and preventing and managing recurrence. The authors explain that while several of the most influential risk factors (family history, being a woman and getting older) can't be controlled, women have the power to modify such other risks as weight gain (a hazard for recurrence as well as lymphedema), exercise, diet, smoking and use of alcohol. Women at any stage of the breast cancer journey, including those grappling with emotional issues surrounding the chance of recurrence, will benefit from the Weisses' up-to-date and uplifting outlook.

quite excellent in helping me and my wife negotiate the rapidly growing body of information. From dagnosis to surgery to treatment takes 2 to 3 weeks. A lot has to be figured out in a very short time. This book proved a valuable resource. Some pain is minimized, but i am sure it is different for all. The book was worth every penny.

I purchased this book two years after my diagnosis based on a friend's recommendation. I wish I had it a year ago. It clarified a lot for me and has helped with ongoing questions that crop up.

I own this book and enjoyed reading it, even if I don't feel that I learned much of anything from it. It was comprehensive, well written, clearly explained aspects of life beyond the tense months of cancer treatment. All this was fine, but I've read a lot by now so don't know that I really needed it but am glad to have it by my bed anyway.
