The book has a tone that is filled with clarity, as well as the fact that you can hear the love that she has for her father. The only setback for me is that the points made in the book are a bit unclear. I would give it a 4 out of 5.

she writes about the natural herbs that her father used to help patients but is opposed by prominent scientist keeping this remedies from reaching peolple who need them. As a result transforming the relationship between a father and a daughter who sworn on her fathers deathbedshe embarks on making them avalable . overall she fails to give a comprehensive arguement to show that her father did find a natural cure.
For me i will give it a 4 star.

When I started reading this book, I was interested in the topic. But as the book went on, my interested waned and the book started to bore me. I think this book is better suited for scientists instead of everyday readers.

From what I read in the free sample, I give this book 4 out of 4 stars. I haven’t personally dealt with a family member having cancer but my grandmother has Alzheimer’s so I can relate to the heartache of someone close to you being ill. You can tell the information is very well researched but there is also the personal touch with stories about the father

Interestingly, some of the extracts that Beljanski discovered not only help with cancer, but AIDS and Alzheimer's symptoms as well.

I really loved this book. Not only am I very interested in the science, but I also found the author's personal story to be very inspiring. I couldn't put down the book. I can definitely see Beljanski's research revolutionizing the health care field in the future.

Reading the book sample made me curious. I've heard about people that cured their cancer somehow, naturally. But so far I don't know what to think about that. I want to believe that it's possible, but having experience with weird illnesses and a lot of experiments of my own, I find it extremely hard. And yet, I believe every time because there is no option not to :)

I appreciate when the author included anecdotal information to support the scientific premise of the book.
