    "Receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer is devastating and when the shock begins to subside there is an overwhelming need to gain as much information as possible about what is to come. For many people, like me, the first port of call is the internet. There's certainly plenty of information scattered across the web but not all of it is helpful, a lot of it is inaccurate and some of it will only add to your fears. I only wish that I had a copy of "Breast Cancer: Taking Control" by Australian breast cancer specialist, Professor John Boyages in my hands at the very beginning. This is a book that you can dip in and out off, throughout treatment and I definitely would recommend it to anyone recently diagnosed with breast cancer as well as to those closely involved in their care and recovery." - Aboutmygeneration.com February 2012
