I was 32 when diagnosed with breast cancer. I bought every book I could get my hands on but this was the only book I wish I had found. Most cancer related books are going to tell you what to expect during treatment. This is the ONLY book I have found that tells you what YOU can do for YOU from the minute you find out you have cancer. It teaches you that everything you put into your mouth has an effect on your health, and it lists in very simple terms what you can eat to prevent cancer. I will buy this book for every person I know who has had cancer and every person diagnosed with it in the future. THIS is the cancer bible.

As a cancer patient lots of books have come my way. Most were of little help. When I learned of this book I was so sceptical I borrowed it from the library. Before I was finished I went on line and bought it. This book is outstanding worth every penny. I constantly refer to it. Well written and easy to understand.

After reading Suzanne Somers book "KNOCKOUT," I got this book and it is very informative. I believe the right way to stop cancer is the to eat right, balance hormoens, get enough sleep and avoid toxins. I recommend it.

There are many books on "fighting" cancar. Who to listen to? Well, Anti-Cancer got my attention because of the recommendation from M.D. Anderson president. It also got the attention of my oncologist. I provided a book for her as well. It is not completely an easy read as this writer is a physician and scholar. It seems written with a researcher's skew. However, it provides valuable information regarding things which patient's may do to prolong life adjunct with treatment. Research indicated it can make a difference. This book reminded me that I do have some control over my life - mind, emotions, lifestyle, diet and other choices. To me, this is more than half the battle. I have a good prognosis. But, changing my life choices can change my body's responses and thwart recurrence. This is good news.

I am a 10-year breast cancer survivor recently going through a diagnosis of my cancer returning.....the doctors think.....they do not know....they will keep testing....and I will keep waiting for the other shoe to fall, so to speak. I went right out and picked up this book which called my name right off the shelf-- I found it to be insightful, hopeful and answered some very specific questions as to yes, you can drink 3 cups of green tea to benefit! I am in the process of putting together a little Manual To Me....based on this book, things I can choose to do each day to benefit my body-- It is empowering to believe, and Anticancer provokes actions that I can take in that there are simple things one can do each day that make a difference!

Since my husbands diag. I have read a lot of information about cancer. I bought this book and as I was reading it I realized that not only is it easy to read and understand, it is by far one of the best sources of vital, current information regarding cancer research, treatment etc.. I have already had to buy a second book because I gave my first one to someone else diag. with cancer.

This book will make you think about nutrition as it relates to cancer. It might prompt you to consider changing your diet toward a more organic and vegetarian one. Of course, there is more to holistic health than food and this book covers those aspects well. It is relatively easy to read with not a lot of medical terminology so the layman can understand it well. It should be widely read.

I got this book when my mother-in-law tested positive for cancer last month. What I wasn't expecting was to find a new way to look at what I myself eat, the amount I exercise and how I choose to proceive stress. This is a great read for anybody looking to improve their lifestyle. I highly recommend it.

A very good friend of mine has brain tumors and breast cancer. After surviving one year of chemo, her blood test results are identical to a healthy person never having or needing chemo or radiation. In solidarity, Sara's entire family joined in the diet over a year ago, and everyone has experienced numerous positive changes. I ordered the book, but I have already lent it to another friend. One has to adapt to another way of eating, but it is a pleasant change for the better. It is educational because it teaches us what happens to our bodies according to food choices. Most people, especially those of us in poor health, are desparately searching for anyone or anything that can bring relief and bring help. I will definitely buy this book for my family and friends who are suffering from ill health.

This book was a little technical and scientific, but the heart of it gives hope to cancer patients and their families. I bought this for my Nook and it wasn't that kind of book. There were charts and footnotes, etc that couldn't be read, so I will buy hardcover or paperback reference books from now on.

"Anticancer" by David Servan-Schreiber is an amazing book. I had just learned I had breast cancer so started researching online. Found a link to this book, read some of the pages and description of contents and decided it would be very helpful. The book became a sort of "bible" for me. It is so well written and researched. The author has all the credentials to write such a book, as well as refers to studies being done in the field of cancer all over the world. He is a doctor, researcher and survivor of cancer himself. You will find information on the best foods and worse foods to eat: if you have cancer or you want to try to prevent having it. Even without cancer you will find in it a resource for living a much healthier life. The book is detailed enough for professionals in medical and research fields, but also is written for the lay person to understand. It reads smoothly like a novel, but you can skip all around too. I recommend this book to everyone...in fact I told my doctor, nurses, friends and family about it. Such a blessing that I found "Anticancer" out of the blue online. I can't say enough on how much it helped me feel more knowledgeable and confident as I entered the scary world of cancer.

This book is an engaging, personal and scientific look at combatting cancer from all perspectives - mental, physical, nutritional, and environmental. Read it, take it to heart, and share it with family and friends. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain from Dr. Servan-Schreiber's recommendations.

This is not just another book on what to eat and what to do for health. It has a story line regarding Servan-Schreiber's own health problem and what he learned from the experience. Turns out that younger folks should be aware of these things before health issues catch up with them.
