If I had stage 4 cancer, were fighting for my life, and could only refer to one book, Life Over Cancer would be the one. I can say this with conviction after scouring through dozens and dozens of titles at Amazon and ordering several. Using some of the strategies in the Life Over Cancer to help bring my wife back from sliding further into the death spiral of cachexia (wasting and rapid loss of weight, loss of appetite, growing weakness).
For people too weak or not inclined to read a lot, during our recent visit to the Block Center, Dr. Block said that chapters 1, 4 and 13 contain the essence of the book. But I found chapters 14 through 18 also very helpful. The book is packed with insight into scientifically supported complementary therapies to conventional cancer care.
