"You have breast cancer." After the initial shock of diagnosis, women are faced with myriad questions about where to go and what to do next. Lange, a Harvard Medical School-trained physician who experienced his wife's battle with the disease, has written an especially user-friendly book for women seeking answers and a measure of hope. Based on his video and CD-ROM programs (Lange, 1997), Be a SurvivorTM follows the stages of treatment and recovery, offering a balanced, accessible text; highlighted topic boxes; excellent, detailed illustrations; and checklists of questions for doctors ("Could you give me the names of specialists you think I should see?"). There are informative sidebars and inspirational photos and quotes from survivors on almost every page. Similar to John Link's The Breast Cancer Survival Manual (LJ 3/1/98), Lange's work also covers reconstruction, alternative therapies, clinical trials, and life after breast cancer. The book ends with a lengthy resource list, a glossary, and an index. Be a SurvivorTM should be the first book women reach for in developing strategies to fight perhaps the biggest battle of their lives.?Bette-Lee Fox, "Library Journal"
