Dr. Ali's Understanding Lung Cancer is an incredibly well-organized guidebook possessing an ability to discuss virtually everything there is to know about lung cancer in a single volume. The author emphasizes how lung cancer can affect both patients and caregivers in all walks of life, and his ideas are suggestive of a multipronged approach that’s much needed in light of our rapidly changing health care system. As someone who has lost family members to lung cancer, I have no hesitation in recommending this book. (Meredith Patterson, Broadway and Television Actress)
Dr. Ali has taken on a huge and complicated subject, and successfully given an overview that will benefit lay and professional readerships alike. Most of all, he has clearly defined the monstrous nature of this killer - lung cancer - and correctly pointed out that while there are many factors in its development, the single most consistent stimulus is WHAT WE BREATH. The data for that cause and effect is irrefutable. For those that seek knowledge regarding this cancer, this work is rich in data sources. (Roy B. Sessions, M.D., author of The Cancer Experience)

The author is absolutely right - Lung Cancer is not just limited to smokers, it affects more people than that. This book has the answers to this devastating mystery. To be from a trusted, M.D. who is well-versed in the subject, has studied it first-hand, and is an undeniable expert, this was the obvious choice to understanding the disease wholly. Dr. Naheed Ali writes from an objective manner, telling the complete truth.
I like that it doesn't read like a textbook, but doesn't patronize people who are suffering either. It is detailed and specific, but gives you what you want to know about alleviating symptoms, what makes it more bearable. I just consider this Understanding Lung Cancer: An Introduction for Patients and Caregivers to be indispensable for me and my loved one during this time.
