Listening to it while preparing dinner each night with my boyfriend who has stage recently been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The things discussed where topics I was frightened of bringing up with my boyfriend. it gave lots of ideas to discuss. As a result of listening to this I have changed my partners diet by about 75%.
Never give up.
No there is too much to learn, consider and absorb.
When things seem hopeless this book and the authors observations made me reconsider and gave me things I could do to make myself feel like I was helping.
After listening to this audio book, I have learned a lot, and have recommended to many people. I myself don't have cancer, but this book definitely can help to prevent cancer, too. Recently I've learned that he just died 20 years after his brain cancer diagnose, and I couldn't stop tearing up. Thank you for the precious gift you left to everybody!
This book is a life changer. One of the best books I have ever read. The only weak spot, for me anyhow, was the end where he took a very humanistic perspective of healing and staying healthy, whereas I was hoping he would have attributed more to Christianity. But that's... my belief, not his. Otherwise, the book was fantastic!
Unfortunately, this book and other Audible books do not have chapter markers compatible with older models of iPods, therefore I have been unable to listen to the whole thing because every time I stop my iPod and re-charge, it goes back to Chapter 1 and I have to start all over again. I can't get past chapter 3.
And like regular books in my paper library, I am unable to lend any of these books to friends or family, which is completely ridiculous. If I'm paying for a book, either paper or digital, it is mine and I should be able to lend it to whomever I please. But Audible prevents any book from being shared on more than one device, even if it is mine! I am considering disabling my account because of this.
Anticancer is a very interesting and practical listen to help us live longer and healthier. If you enjoy this book try The China Study. If you like China Study, try Eating Animals. You will live longer and better if you put these ideas into practice.
