Very Valuable Resource
When my father was diagnosed with NSCLC in October 2004, my first reaction was to research, research, research. This book, Lung Cancer: Myths, Facts, Choices-- and Hope, was an excellent introductory resource for my family. I read the entire book cover to cover, and then revisited chapters as they related to my father's treatments. The book is written to be completely accessible, informative (without being overwhelming), and hopeful. I found that it eased my anxiety and answered some pressing questions immediately. It was also extremely useful in formulating questions for our doctors. It allowed us to enter into appointments with a base level of understanding, and to ask important, detailed questions about treatments and options. I would recommend this book to anyone newly diagnosed with LC, families and friends of lung cancer patients, and interested parties looking to broaden their understanding of the disease. Lung Cancer kills more people in the US every year than breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer, and prostate cancer *combined*.

Most of the information in this book can be found on the American Cancer Society web-site. Could be good for those recently diagnosed with Lung Cancer. Lots of info for caregivers and family members, not so much for the individual dealing with the disease.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
