Wow! I have just finished this book and I feel I know more about cancer than I could have learned by watching a hundred TV documentaries.
Who would EVER have thought an author would write the GOOD NEWS about cancer?! But that is what this author, Lauren Pecorino has done. Everybody talks about cancer, you read about it in the papers, you hear about it on the news or in a programme, and sadly, some of us learn from personal direct experience of having a close loved one die from it. The figure is quoted as 'One person in three' and that is enough to make me need to know more, so I took a chance, or so I thought; the chance that I would buy a book which would flummox and bamboozle me with hardcore science and make me feel like I was back in some nightmarish chemistry class. But chance was in my favour and this book is written for ordinary people, just like you and me. I read it with ease and my mind was able to absorb it all.
I feel I know more now than I ever did and I believe this book is inspirational and will help people to understand the nature and causes of cancer, the best ways to increase your chances of avoiding it and also the exciting and literally fascinating therapies which are being currently designed and also those which have been already been designed.
There are so many other books out there which drone on and on like my secondary school chemistry teacher, this book will grab your attention, make you sit up and it actually makes you feel like you've conquered your own fear of something which, let's be honest, none of us know much about.
Beautifully written and I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who felt like I did before I read this amazing book. Buy it and read it, you won't regret it.
