"I was just thinking to myself what a tough week I'm having (I'm losing my hair) when I came home to find this wonderful book to help me cope. All of chemo's 'greatest hits' are here, the drugs I'm on. This book is concise and wonderful."
- Lynne, cancer survivor
"Here it is, a consumer's guidebook you wish you didn't need but a must have when you do. Packed full of scientific-based, practical information, it helps answer your questions. You will reach for this easy-to-use book again and again, as my brother in treatment and his family did."
