This book is put together from the author’s regular columns, interspersed with brief chapters from others who saw him through his cancer journey.
Often funny, deeply personal and sometimes reflective, I found David’s take on cancer uplifting and something I actually enjoyed reading. Medical memoirs can be tough going and he doesn’t pull any punches. He opened my eyes to some procedures I didn’t truly understand, without dwelling on the difficulty and pain involved.
David feels that we have a choice about how we respond to events in our lives. That choice provides a means of control which would certainly help me in such a situation.
If I ever have a cancer diagnosed, I will keep this book close by to remind me to try and see the humour in dark times and to exercise control by my response to the situation.

BalanceReviewed in Canada on 9 March 2020
The balance of honesty and humour was so inspiring to me and has helped me to achieve my own balance on my cancer adventure.
Heart warming, inspiring and funnyReviewed in the United States on 27 September 2019
David’s reflections are great to read as a reminder of the choice we have in how we might respond to events, it is rawscary, but also made me laugh out loud.
