Living through Breast Cancer Dec 22, 2007
This book is very interesting because it is written by someone who has lived both sides of this disease. I will recommend this book strongly to all of those with breast cancer, and also to their family members and friends. Each chapter tells useful informative information that one should know on this journey, but most often hesitate to ask.
Honest, Heartfelt, and EASY to understand! Jul 30, 2007
36, married, and 3 young girls....and a breast cancer diagnosis June 2007. We were fortunate to have close friends who are related to Dr. Kaelin. She is smart, easy to talk to, informative, unpretentious (sp?), and oh, so compassionate. I am 12 days postop today (7/30/07) and still use her book as a reference. I had the honor of meeting her as well-funny who your hero's become after surviving a bilateral mastectomy and she is absolutely amazing to speak with! Most important, SHE LISTENS. To all cancer survivors....be well, be strong!

Lone voice of dissent May 17, 2007
I must be the only woman in America who didn't like this book -- I found it superficial and was disappointed that it didn't focus much on her own experiences. Plus there were some inconsistancies in her writing - the first time she mentions an incident, it was raining, later in the book, she recalls it being sunny -- minor, but it is sloppy editing. I read this around the time of my sent. node/lumpectomy/mastectomy surgeries in the fall of 2006. Went on to have chemo and rads, and I've read some 30 books on BC in an effort to be a well-informed patient. For my money, I'll take Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book:4th Edition 2005 for info, and for personal experience, I liked Katherine Russell Rich's The Red Devil: To Hell with Cancer--And Back and Lila Petosi's Dancing With Fear: Tips and Wisdom from Breast Cancer Survivors Blessings to those of you who are starting your BC journey.

This comprehensive book will help any breast cancer survivor navigate the medical system and become her own best advocate for quality health care.
Saved me from chemotherapy induced insomnia!! Aug 14, 2006
This book saved me when I has having chemotherapy and ended up with constant insomnia. I had not read about that as a side effect of breast cancer treatments until this book which has a good discussion of drugs usually used to treat breast cancer. I had read LOTS of books prior to my treatment and only this one mentioned drugs used to treat insomnia. If hadn't of known, I probably would still be staring at the ceiling ALL NIGHT wondering what the heck was going on!!!
