M.G. Evans Cancer Inc., The Half Full Side tells the positive story of one man's struggle to overcome all that is negative in his life. Cancer is one of the most devastating diseases known to man, physically debilitating, while destroying the will to live. From everything negative, however, sometimes emerges a positive element, a new outlook and attitude on life. Cancer Inc. is unique in that it is a collection of e-mails from Marc to his friends and family, relaying each step of the battle against cancer-from treatments to updated conditions. Essentially, the truly fascinating aspect of this book is the individual's ability to remain humorous and unfazed, and maintain a resolve-despite adversity in the deadliest of forms. The following is an example of Marc discussing the effects of his cancer treatment in terms of stock: "With the current economic conditions, it is good to report some favorable results in the recent medical stocks. Marc Inc. has seen a rise in some of it subsidiary holdings. Recent testing in the Pet Scan division show only localized disease in the Neck division, while all other holdings are showing a clean balance sheet." In addition, moral support has the power to change an individual's life; no matter how difficult is the climb back to normalcy. Cancer Inc., The Half Full Side is a testament to Marc's friends and family, who gave him a reason to keep fighting. Ultimately, the bridge that an individual has to cross to get from the "Patient" to "Survivor" status can seem endless, but with the quality and quantity of care and support from friends and family, this becomes a possibility. Though M.G. Evans' writing style is experimental in structure, it is certainly genuine and honest. The bottom line is that this book is not just for cancer patients, but for anyone who is facing an obstacle that they feel is insurmountable. The premise of the book is quite simple: "If in life we always look at everything as half empty, then the results will almost always be failure. It is important to find the joy and positive points in everything that we do." Cancer Inc., The Half-Full Side is a must-read page-turner for all. Readers will be glad to know that Cancer Inc. is on Barnes & Noble Nookbooks and on the publisher's website.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The cover alone made me want to buy this book and read it. The courage of this man to deal with Cancer in such a positive way was truly inspiring. Not many people can find the humor in Chemo and this author has captured the real cure for cancer by keeping a positive attitude. You will find this book on the best sellers list and Oprah's book club soon.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
