What People are Saying About This

Susan George

The Cancer Stage is not a metaphor but a rigorous description of where we are. Deeply learned, relentlessly logical and corrosively liberating, McMurtry is an unconventional, idol-smashing philosopher imbued with passion and urgency; a dangerous man. Every word resonates.
—( Susan George, author of The Debt Boomerang (Pluto) and A Fate Worse than Debt )
