This book is not a book for children, but is a book for pretty much everyone else. It chronicles Tommy's year-long (and more) battle with stage four inoperable throat cancer, giving a truly remarkable insight into what goes through the mind of a family man when told he's very likely to die. In his own words, and inimitable style, Tommy takes us through everything from initial diagnosis, up to and including his current battles with the after effects of his treatment.
At times, it is the funniest book Tommy has ever written. At others, it's the hardest thing you'll ever read. But even through those darker moments, Tommy's humour and good grace are never far away, and this is ultimately an uplifting read, and one that, via the original blog format, has touched thousands of cancer sufferers and their families, and helped put their feelings into words they might otherwise never have found.
Raw, honest, painful, yet often laugh-out-loud, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
It's a tough read, of course, but still uplifting and amusing in many places, in no small part due to the sense of humour and sheer will power of the patient involved, children's author Tommy Donbavand. Fortunately he's also a great writer, so this is a highly readable account. Even if a tough one at times.
Can't recommend this book highly enough. Read it if you can.
