Description: Dr. Jimmie Holland, a pioneer in the field of psycho-oncology, has spent years talking to people with cancer and their families and presents a new understanding of what it's like to face this dreaded disease. She understands that everyone copes very differently with such a prospect, and puts forward the controversial yet commonsense notion that the current overzealous belief in the mind-body connection leads many people to blame themselves for getting cancer, or for not getting better. She provides practical and compassionate guidance on:
-- What makes a cancer diagnosis easier -- and harder -- to deal with
-- How to respect and appropriately respond to a person's way of coping and avoid the "one size fits all" approach
-- How to help patients find meaning in what's happening
-- The help available for people dealing with the emotional aspects of cancer.

Sensitive and eloquent, The Human Side of Cancer offers cancer patients and their loved ones honest and reassuring advice on dealing with the greatest challenge of their lives.
