Editorial Reviews

Review

"A refreshingly up-beat, humorous, compassionate treasury of practical wisdom for those living with cancer." (Willa B. Miller, coauthor of The Arts of Contemplative Care )

"This remarkable book combines the deep and authentic wisdom of Zen ancestors’ pithy teachings with the everyday practical intelligence required to live with cancer. If you are ill, this book is required reading, but it is also recommended for those of us who face aging and mortality--everyone. This book brilliantly addresses living fully each day while facing a life that ultimately veers beyond our control." (Grace Schireson, author of Zen Women )

"As a person living with chronic illness, this book has become one of my most valuable resources. It’s a rich and comprehensive guide to opening our minds to our life as it is and for soothing our struggling bodies." (Toni Bernhard, author of How to Be Sick and How to Wake Up )

"Daju Suzanne Friedman gives us a wise, practical and compassionate fusion of modern and ancient Zen mind body approaches that allow one to live with cancer." (Herbert Benson, MD, author of The Relaxation Response )

"Something truly astonishing can happen when we are pushed to the edge of our life. Daju Suzanne Friedman met her cancer diagnosis with the courage of everyday Zen. She leads us through the mundane and the horrific with such steadfast wisdom that her book reminds us what is possible for our lives as we engage the inevitable challenges of old age, sickness, and death." (Rodney Smith, author of Awakening )

"As straightforward as a Zen Master, and as compassionate as a Bodhisattva, Daju gently unveils the path of living with cancer. This is a healing jewel, studded with ancient wisdom and good humor. I will be giving this to many friends as a companion on the way of doing illness." (Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, author of Most Intimate: A Zen Approach to Life's Challenges )
