No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Change your diet. Think positive and you'll live. Doctors aren't always right. Get some experimental treatment. Watch this YouTube video. Read this article. Visit this website. It's the chemo that'll kill you, not the cancer.

There's always a chance.

There's always hope.

There's no harm in trying...

When Gideon Burrows was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour, he found himself in the cancer twilight zone: a place where hope and wellbeing are exalted, and where truth and rationality are sometimes optional extras.

It's a world where the dying are always bravely battling, survivors are venerated and where charities and wellness gurus are beyond criticism. It's a place of miracle diets, self-healing and positive thinking.

When there are so many contradicting opinions and so much background noise, how do you separate the sane from the sound? How do you make decisions that are wise rather than wishful thinking?

This book challenges the very foundations of how we respond to the disease. It will make you angry, it may make you cry. It will make you feel hopeful and hopeless in equal measure.

Above all, though, it will make you think.
