What can I say about this amazing book??? First of all I must start my rating by saying that I am a former Oncology nurse and thyroid cancer survivor. I could so totally relate to this made me made me cry........but seeing Christine Magnus Moor take the horror of Cancer and find something good in it shows me that I'm not crazy after all. So many thing she said were things that I said and thought. And the fact that she keeps giving back after this experience shows me that I'm on the right track! If you have cancer, love someone with cancer, or are a nurse read this book! It will make you think, laugh, and cry all at the same time!

Beautifully written and easy to read, Both Sides of the Bedside is like a companion, full of life and light while telling a story of great difficulty, pain, struggle, and achievement. I wish I had something like this when I was going through treatment to make me feel less lonely. I would recommend this book for any patients looking for a companion or guiding light or just feel lost during their treatment. I admire and thank Christine for sharing a story so personal that it is oftentimes hard to share. Christine’s unique perspective as a nurse turned patient provides a mirrored story; throughout her experience with cancer, she remembered significant moments from her patients’ journeys and felt their pain as her own. If only we could all have nurses like Christine!

A very stirring book in which we follow in great detail the cancer treatment of the author. This is skilfully interspersed with the stories of cancer suffers she treated when working as a cancer nurse., and without these other stories the book would, in fact, be a trifle claustrophobic, but we follow the life of the author over the brief time she was undergoing treatment, and although the account is somewhat self-indulgent, it is a gripping account. At times, however, I did wish the author had the knack of being able to step back and be slightly more objective. Nonetheless it is a very readable tale, clearly and concisely written, and you race through it, identifying with the writer, and turning the pages to find out how things resolve. if anyone wants to know what it feels like to go through cancer treatment and all that surrounds it, this is an ideal book to read.
