I bought this book for my boyfriend who was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in Aug 2013, he has not put it down since! It is VERY easy to read, you can jump into it anywhere, he comes back to review it time and time again as he learns more about what he needs to eat to help him stay in the best health possible. His words 'anyone who has cancer should buy this book'!! If you know anyone that has cancer and they may need some information to help themselves then do them a favour and buy this book as a gift. I dont think I have ever spent 20 quid more wisely. His tools for learning are this book, his iPAD (another excellent present by the way cant speak highly enough, helped him through Chemo trips, portable etc) and his notepad which is getting full of information. Buy it, read it, change your eating habits (useful for anyone else who is ill or healthy actually!) there is hope out there so believe...as the doctors dont help you with this part....they are great but there is more that you can do than just go to hospital!!
