Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
This is the fourth and fully updated edition of the 'essential' cancer self-help book that has sold over 45,000 copies since its first publication. Living Simply with Cancer (LSWC) is a small and easy-to-read book that is ideal for those who have recently been diagnosed with cancer and also for their family and carers. The book aims to empower the reader to take control of their illness and it details how to develop simple yet effective strategies to improve their general health and perhaps also their prognosis. Nutrition, stress management, exercise, humour, support groups and re-discovering your own-self are all discussed in an easy-to-understand way by the author Ross Taylor, who was given a 'terminal' prognosis in 1993. Today Ross is active, fit and full of vitality and passion for life. As Dennis Lillee said, 'Ross is a winner in life'.
