The Chemotherapy & Radiation Therapy - Survival Guide

This book is very easy to read but doesn't skip on technical details. The chapters cover basics about the treatment, how to deal with side-effects, getting good nutrition, support, and bone-marrow transplants. Patients like this book because it de-mystifies the process and helps guide them through from beginning to end. There is comfort in knowing what is coming and they feel reassured to know that there are ways to deal with just about everything that may come their way. Patients are usually very interested in mind/body techniques during chemotherapy. As per the author the chapters on Mind/Body techniques, relaxation and visualization are liked by patients.
