I devoured this book, staying up quite late to do so.
The author is very correct in telling how many many people diagnosed with an unusual and rare cancer react when they learn they have Carcinoid.
As another person who was diagnosed in 1995, and who has been very proactive in my treatment, I recommend this book highly to all dealing with cancer — not just the patients, but also family members and friends. There is a great deal of very useful and helpful information in this book.

This book is about carcinoid cancer from the inside out, by a teacher of literature, and is well crafted without being oppressively literary. The story is told straightforwardly and with courage.
