If like me you have been told that you have cancer and after your surgery you need to made the difficult choice of which follow up treatment to pursue then this book is a must read. As it turns out I chose to pursue a chemotherapy regiment in part on the sound advice of these authors and eight months later I pleased to say thank you Dr. Delfino and Dr. Day for writing this book.

Let me begin by saying that I bought Cancer: we live and die by radiation after seeing it on the new book shelves in my library. I am a breast cancer survivor who was treated with radiotherapy two years ago so I am always on the look out for books on the subject of long term side effects and after briefly examining this book in the library I decided to get a copy for myself as the authors categorize the different cancers and reference the most relevant clinical studies for further reading. Some people may find this book too academic for their tastes I imagine but I am certainly not among them. If you are looking for technical answers to some tough questions then you should consider reading this book.

I bought this book to learn more about prostate cancer as I have just been informed that I have the disease. My first impression is that the authors have done a great job of backing up everything they write giving lots of numbers with references to clinical studies so you get a real sense of authority. One thing is for sure. This book should help me to decide how best to treat my cancer.

What a welcome read for people diagnosed with this horrible disease. This is a book that takes a hard look at the pros and cons of using radiotherapy to treat cancers and not just prostate cancer or breast cancer but every imaginable form of the disease and according to the authors, Dr. Delfino and Day, there are over 200 different types of cancer. If you have ever tried to get a straight answer from a doctor this is a book to read. By the way, this book came out in Sept 2006. Highly recommended!
