I recommend this book to individuals at any stage of breast cancer from diagnosis through the end of treatment and beyond. I wish I had found this book from the beginning of diagnosis. It contains a lot of very useful information to guide you through terminology, medications, the changes taking place in your body, and the psychological factors of breast cancer and its treatment. I will likely purchase this book so I can highlight and make notes.
