Beljanski is very clear about where she stands and this influences the book, adding an overly biased edge. However, the insertion of factual data and research offset this and validated the claims of the book. I would definitely recommend this book to others, as I found it informative and it provided several alternative methods I was previously unaware of.

I like that Beljanski stands by what she believes in. It's quite plainly her biased opinion based on her father's work and how justified she feels his work is, but she supports this with research and provides a clear analysis of just why she thinks her way could work. It makes the title of the novel that much more interesting, especially the use of the word 'War' which shows you that she is fighting for something, not just against cancer but for acknowledgement of the plausibility of the alternative methods' success.

Winning war on cancer is justified concept of the writer not only on her Fathers analysis.
Take for instance the under Developed world which have continued to experience inclined up ward epidimiolgical of cancer diagnosis due to change in lifestyles and food values from natural drying up preservations to refrigeration deep freezeing.A study to determine the variability of the two could give some highlights to the war against cancer.

Nothing beats a story than including one's personal experience in it.
The book taught me so much and I'm definitely sure I'd be picking it up again.

I found it a four star read for me, and I will readily recommend it for anybody seeking knowledge about cancer.

I'd give this book a 3 out of 4 star rating. The research that went into its creation, plus the addition of resources and Beljanski and her father's own experiences made it a lot more credible.

Cancer is such a deadly disease and I love how this book deals with it in an informative way. So I am giving it a four out of four
