Bottom Line: Skip this Book
on September 19, 2009
I had high hopes for this book when I read about in my local paper. After reading it I found it weakly edited and a poorly disguised infomercial for the various websites of the experts and of course that of the [...]. There is no problem for being paid for producing something of value, but that is not the case here. The book has been released suspiciously close to October and Breast Cancer Awareness month. The experts contradict each other on the same page and some of the advice provided can be counterproductive. The book is neither a single resource for options nor does it provide new information. If you are patient, work with your doctor and get the information on what is happening to your body from him/her. Only the doctors know the combination of drugs you are receiving, the cumulative side affects and the best mitigation techniques. The resources (many free) that are noted in the book are available through your medical team and participating hospital. Libraries, web searches for cancer support and hotlines can provide even more information about local organizations. If you are trying to support a patient visit her, go with her to chemo, cook a meal for her family, if there are kids-take them out for awhile, or advocate for her with her doctor.
1. Under no circumstances should you follow the advice in this book over the advice of your doctor.
