Every day I work I find at least one new book I would like to read but I will never manage to read all the books I add to my list. Recently, when I grabbed some new nonfiction books to put on a display one caught my eye – Anticancer: A new way of life by David Servan-Schreiber. My sister-in-law has had cancer for a couple of years now and has tried all the conventional treatment without success so I decided to read the book to see if it would be any use to her. What I particularly liked about this book is that it is scientific without being hard-to-follow or dry. The author is a neuroscientist and all his recomendations are based on reputable scientific studies. He also has had a brain tumour for 15 years and his personal story and those of other patients is woven into the book. I will definitely be recommending this book to my sister-in-law – I might try harder to like green tea too!
