I appreciate the kindle version of this book is cheaper than the print version. The book is very short - not much content, so I would have been unhappy had I paid "full price". That being said, You Did What? is inspirational for anyone saying "NO" to corporate / mainstream cancer treatments. I also have breast cancer and face intense pressure from doctors and well-meaning friends to get cancer treatments which would leave me permatently disfigured and possibly ruin my future health with side effects. This book offers validation to those of us who question the wisdom and science behind the corporate medical paradigm. You Did What? has its flaws, but I recommend it as an antidote to the fear-mongering and corruption which fuels the multi-billion dollar cancer treatment industry. I wish I could make my doctor read this book!

I jumped at this book, because I have started the process of moving from traditional cancer treatments (cut/poison/burn) to an alternative (modified Gerson therapy). I was looking for the process that the authors used to select an alternative treatment and found little to satisfy me. I was also looking for a way to deflect challenges from well-meaning family members and friends (the "You Did What?" part), but didn't find much there, either. The criticisms of conventional Western medicine were well backed-up, but they became repetitive ("rants"). To some extent, then, the book smacks of a stream-of-consciousness approach, not well organized. I would have appreciated a lot more content on the process that the authors used to select the specific alternative treatment they chose: Why the clinic in Oregon? What criteria did they use to choose that? What are the upsides and downsides of the other alternative choices they evaluated?

Still, if you are faced with cancer -- especially breast cancer -- and considering conventional versus alternative treatments, read this book. Also, read Questioning Chemotherapy, by Ralph W. Moss. Both are excellent!

The book was premature, too much front end emotional going on. But he facts are there and the fact that it can be done. The book is a guide to move forward and find your way through cancer. I said no to chemo and radiation and a second radical surgery. I said, "No thank you, I will do it myself." The fact is I dodged many oncologist bullets when the three I first went to did not have my best interest at heart and then found the oncologist and breast cancer specialist I work with now. First do no harm. That is the promise of all doctors. But the frantic push to get a cancer patient into chemo and radiation is not the best interest, it is the one way treats all. The treatment can kill, the patient must be in charge even if they do not know anything. It is their life. This book cemented my path to find the other way and I have - by finding an oncologist that told me chemo was overkill for what I had and would not do any good, radiation would harm me. The injections to block estrogen was the way along with the natural foods and calmer way of life.

I was surprised at some of the negative reviews. I found there were many footnotes for the claims made by the Authors. I wish there were footnotes to more sociological and scientific studies. A bibliography would be nice. But I found the book compelling and motivating. I found it rang true. My experience was very similar to Hollie's and I felt bullied by the Physicians. My son had just died and I was quiet ill and felt I had no will to fight the bullying physicians who basically told me unless I did it their way I could go somewhere else. I had kidney cancer which is rare and I had very few choices. The nearest doctor was 50 miles from me to not go with him meant 7o miles or further. Needless to say I did what he said and now I have life long impairments. It has been five years and I am not half the person I used to be.
If I had to do it again I wouldn't do what the physician was insisting. I spent the first two years wishing I had died. Then I found Complementary medicine and Alternative medicine. I credit those Practicianers and Physicians with giving me back what life I have. Hollie and Patrick cite some excellent resources. Thank you
My impression is that the book was not meant to be a guide, definitive or otherwise, or a medical book, but more inspirational. It is inspirational indeed. Another review said it was a "A Love Story", I agree. The message is good. There is more than one way to deal with cancer and the conventional medical community does not have all the answers. Readers will find some good resources here.

In a word, compelling. This incredibly well written book is a quick and easy read and yet it is FULL of extremely valuable information about cancer treatment - providing the reader with a clear understanding (backed by tons of research, citations, personal experience) of having a choice about cancer treatment that isn't in the mainstream, namely, using natural methods to rid the body of cancer and protect it from cancer's return. These young authors have done a great services to the world by sharing their story and their exact steps, including how they came to such a brave decision, the name and phone number of their treating clinic, their favorite cookbook, and lifestyle changes, that brought Hollie (the new mother with cancer at the center of this story) back to health and living cancer-free. I laughed and cried, but mostly laughed and cheered, and ended up feeling less afraid of ever getting cancer. I recommend this book to any person faced with cancer or anyone who knows someone facing cancer. And I recommend reading it from cover to cover -even the Index.
