"Ryan and Jackson offer patients and their families useful step-by-step advice. It comes at a time of unusual excitement in the field, thanks to new treatments that hold the promise of making long, full lives with cancer far more common."

"I recommend this fantastic step-by-step guidebook to anyone dealing with cancer as a patient, or as a family member or friend. It is also a basic book for carers and support workers and a fantastic resource for nurses and doctors to refresh their knowledge."

"Living with Cancer is comprehensive, straightforward, and just plain wise. From the practical details of diagnosis and treatment to the deep meaning of hope, it offers answers to the questions that people facing cancer have and guidance for how to live—truly live—with this disease. If you have cancer, or love someone who does, read this."

"From the practical details of diagnosis and treatment to the deep meaning of hope, this book is filled with all the questions most people facing cancer have and the answers needed to live as well as possible. Everyone facing cancer and everyone who loves them should read this book."

"Readable right from the start, this great book's joint approach of palliative care and oncology fits with the American Society of Clinical Oncology's new guidelines: within the first 8 weeks, every seriously ill cancer patient should be seen by an interdisciplinary palliative care team along with their oncologist."

"A spectacular guide for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis."

"A unique and greatly needed book. Written by experts in the fields who are used to working together as a team, Living with Cancer covers the breadth and depth of cancer care for patients and families. Authoritative yet easy to understand, it combines best evidence with patient examples in a cohesive way that feels like a conversation with a very skilled, experienced, and compassionate doctor."
