This book describes the basic facts about cancer, the two ways cancer can be visualized, and the four sensible strategies for responding to your cancer. But the first step in your cancer journey is to become aware of and to evaluate your own attitudes to health, healing, doctors and so on. By becoming aware you will be more in control and therefore more able to take a long view as to how you - you in particular - wish to respond to your cancer. The book then provides you with resources that will help you take the next step in your cancer journey. And of course, a natural strategy that cures cancer is very likely to be a strategy which, put in place ahead of time, might very well help you avoid that cancer in the first place.
My wife died of cancer - and also from the impacts of her treatments. Throughout her battle I read book after book but could not find any that gave me a simple overview of the situation I was facing or provided me with a comprehensive list of the options available to me and the benefits/drawbacks and evidence supporting them. So after my wife died I kept on researching and eventually wrote a number of books to rectify the situation - the current one being The Cancer Survivor's Bible. www.fightingcancer.com for details. This big book (550 pages)is supported by a quick summary of the alternative approaches called Cancer Recovery Guide: 15 alternative and complementary approaches. Additionally I have written The Amazing Cancer Kid - the true story of Connah Broom (if you want hope, this book gives it - sent home to die seven years ago with 11 tumours, he is alive and kicking today with only one. How did he do it? Read the book) and Cancer? Don't Panic!(a short but important ebook that provides key insights that will help you think about cancer in a helpful way
I also lived for eight years with my profoundly handicapped daughter, Stevie. She taught me everything valuable that I know - I have written a memoir of those years called Wordjazz for Stevie (why 'wordjazz'? Because there is an interplay of many themes in this short but not, I hope, slight book).
I have also written a memoir of a Chinese kung-fu fighting playboy (King Hui: the man who owned all the opium in Hong Kong. This is an important work of oral history and will deepen your understanding of the dynamics of Hong Kong.
My other Hong Kong book is Chinese Gods, an introduction to Chinese folk religion.
Finally I have written a couple of novels - The Alphabet of Vietnam (a reflection on war and violence and what happens when soldiers come home again) and Dreams of Gold, a comic take on the Olympic Games.
