It looks like this list came out just before the release of my new book, Red Sunshine,- now distributed by Random House. As a pathologist who specializes in breast cancer diagnosis, I never expected to see my own malignant cells under the microscope. But at 33 years old, shortly after the birth of my second child - I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.  Believe me, being a physician did not make me any less terrified of both my treatment and my future. But I discovered that the process can be enlightening in so many ways as well. There are lots of great guidebooks out there - but sometimes a glimpse of the journey from someone who has been through it is just what the doctor ordered!

Hi There. The Screech Owls of Breast Cancer by Eugene G Breen is a must read for all those young women and girls who do not want to get cancer. It is a provocative and controversial read of 60 pages and says what no one is saying. It is based on national statistics and cancer trends and needs to be studied.

I haven't written anything for a while, but just logged in and came across the thread above about recommended reading. In my  posts in the past, I've gone on about how brilliant I think a book I read is, so would like the moderators to consider adding it to the recommended reading list. It's called Emotional Support  through Breast Cancer and it's by a psychologist who's had breast cancer herself. She's called Dr Cordelia Galgut. What I like is that she tells it how it is! She understands that we don't 'just bounce back to normal' because our 'normal' is different from what it used to be. She reminds us that it's 'normal' to feel frightened and angry, etc. Anyway, maybe you could take a look, it's on Amazon under her name - Cordelia Galgut. I definitely think it's worth recommending to women and their families.

I would like to recommend the book "Tripping Over the Truth: How the Metabolic Theory of Cancer is overturning one of medicine's most entrenched paradigms" by Christopher Travis. It presents the history of cancer research and how we got to the present. It also provides an alternate theory that is very promising for the prevention and treatment of cancer
