    Mark Herzlich is a hero. Whenever I'm having a rough day, I thin

    Mark Herzlich is a hero. Whenever I'm having a rough day, I think about him and how there are people who have it so much worse. I have nothing but respect for him, he's inspirational and he is a cancer survivor. I read this book and felt like I was by his side through his whole life and I could read it over and over again and never get sick of it! He came to my uncle's Multiple Myeloma 5K in New Caanan, CT and I am so honored to have met him. I am a cowboys fan, but after reading this story I admire him so much I bought his jersey! A must read book, 150%. A big thanks to Mark for teaching me how wrong I was about life, thats knowledge I will have for the rest of my life!

    highly recommend this book

    This book shows the courageous fight of not only Mark but the whole family. Once you start reading the story you will not want to stop reading. Mark is an inspiration to all cancer patients as well as survivors such as myself. His journey is remarkable.

    A beautifully written memoir of the roller-coaster ride of Mark'

    A beautifully written memoir of the roller-coaster ride of Mark's fight with his disease, "What It Takes" is an absolute must read. I cannot say enough great things about this book. Mark Herzlich's story is in itself is inspirational, but his book is written in such a way that highlights the reality of the challenges and obstacles he faced throughout his battle with cancer as a young man. If you have been touched, directly or indirectly, by this nondiscriminatory disease, you will most certainly be touched by his story. I would recommend this book to anyone who is, or knows someone who is questioning whether they have "What It Takes" to fight the good fight.
