About Cancer As a Turning Point.

Helps anyone dealing with the devastation of cancer to find a "turning point" or spiritual understanding that can be used to promote healing and to find the unrealized dream within that can provide inspiration

Decades of work and research reflected in this phenomenal work about the elements that make us happy and fulfilled. It provides the tools and steps to work into an unusual soul search that holds the potential to enlight you and kick you into action. The benefit to cancer healing and the connection to cancer altogether is because this author spent his career working with cancer patients. The implications of his findings are universal and apply to anyone, healthy or not.

LeShan, a psychologist, gives reason after reason why some people could be more prone to cancer. His perspective is backed by research (case studies). He tends to focus on a loss of personal power or energy drains perspective. The reasons are somewhat intuitive but he provides hard data to back it up. I found the information both fascinating and empowering (in that a person can make changes to empower themselves to be less prone to cancer). This book is written from a cancer perspective, but it could be for just about any other illness. (A chronically weakened immune system is grounds for illness, which if persistent enough eventually becomes a ground for death.)

I found LeShan's writing style easy to read and it flows.

I first bought this book ten years ago thinking someone will get cancer and I want to know what to say to them. The exercises in the back are
excellent for anyone getting their life on track.The patient insights and recoveries are very compelling proving for some that you can get control of your life and beat this.
This is now my standard gift for cancer patients. LeShan's other book YOU CAN FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE is also full of wisdom about handling family, doctors,
friends and your own feelings. SO moved, I went to visit him when my husband had cancer. I am now the patient. This has given me courage and a positive attitude
and greatly reduced the trauma of dealing with this disease. I heartily endorse this book for patients, family, and friends.

Someone bought this book for me when I had cancer eight years ago. I continue to read it as a source of inspiration. I think this book should be repackaged under a different title that excludes cancer from it's title - because this is a book about living. And making choices to live a life in spirit and to your highest potential.

i'm a research psychologist specializing in behavioral medicime.THIS IS POSSIBKLY THE VERY BEST BOOK WRITTEN FOR THE LAYMAN, TO HELP ONE MAXIMIZE THE CHANCE OF RECOVERY FROM ANY MEDICAL CONDITION BY ADJUSTING OUR INTERNAL DIALOGUE TO FAVOR POSITIVE OUTCOMES, PARTICULARLY BY ADDRESSING ANY ASPECTS OF OUR LIVES WE ARE CALLED TO LIVE FULLY, BUT WHICH WE HAVE NEGLECTED!!! The best cognitive therapy to complement whatever medical treatment(s) we are receiving.

This is a a very nice book if you or someone you know has cancer. It's also nice just for understanding the impact your mindset can have on your health. While it's only one of many factors that impact your health, it can sometimes be the difference between you immune system being able to fight off disease or succumbing. As good a preventative tool as it is a recovery tool. Very well written and still relevant.

I found this book to be very helpful but would not recommend it for a newly diagnosed person until later in their chemo therapy. I am a caregiver to my daughter with Hodgkins lymphoma and I thought it might be too much information for her initially. As we investigate alternative ways to increase her resilence and strength in fighting cancer this has some very valuable information. One does not need to read ALL the personal stories of his clients. So be choicey when reading various part of this book. It is not a novel so one can benefit from one chapter or another as needed.
I HAVE GIVEN IT TO PEOPLE WITH THE BIG C AND THEY HAVE ENJOYED READING IT?
