I feel like this book, as well as other pseudo-science books, are simply not effective.

I am not a cancer survivor, my husband is 7 years clean with colon cancer, but I think that if you are a survivor, this book may be one to read.

Dont know any survivors myself, but, I think Cancer survivors will like this book. It provides therapy on how to best prevent themselves from getting other forms of the disease.

In my humble opinion, we should have more of these survivors coming out. It may not be as easy, but if only few spoke out, it would be a major source of hope and resilience. We usually need to hear that someone else went through what we are going through and came out a winner. This then encourages us not to give up.

I think it is really reassuring ,after going through a terrible experience to know that concerted efforts are underway to model better responses to the challenge.However i also admit that it depends on the attitude of the survivor ,some may in the least just fail to appreciate.

Do you feel slighted because you would have liked to have known this information earlier? Do you feel attacked for sticking with mainstream treatments?
I myself am not a cancer survivor, however, I have asked three of my family members who are, and they said that they would like to have read this book earlier. They did enjoy the book and said they would recommend to any cancer patient.

Cancer is killing more people these days then AIDS and it is a sad case. I feel really bad for the people that are struggling with this nasty disease. There are people I know that have never smoked a day in their life but somehow get second hand smoke in their systems and have to live with lung cancer. Its a sad sad case. And not to even mention the food we eat, specialist say these processed foods have cancer in them. Im just in awe of over this nasty disease.

I know someone who is very close to me, my dear Aunt who has luckily survived the danger of breast cancer. Based on my scanning ang preview of the book, I think that this is a great source of information and motivation for readers especially cancer survivors. I am definitely recommending this to mh Aunt.

A friend of mine lost her dad to cancer but before he died, he underwent chemotherapy and they thought it was gone but it really wasn't. I can say reading this book would have given them hope but it wouldn't have taken away the pain.
