My Voice: A Physician’s Personal Experience with Neck Cancer, by Itzhak Brook, MD
Reviewed by Paul M. Roser
I would rate this book a “10.” It is very good. It should be required reading for anyone the first time they hear head and neck cancer mentioned. Everyone should know what they are facing (except some might decline to go forward with treatment after reading it…). Dr. Brook “tells it like it is.” I could relate to many of the things he discusses.
This book should also be read by every head and neck cancer surgeon, so they know what goes on after their work is finished. I would imagine many have no idea what their patients go through. As a physician and patient, this man speaks from personal “both-sides-of-the-fence” experience.
To order a copy of the book, go to www.dribrook.blogspot.com ($10.22 for paperback; $4.99 for Kindle download). In August, Dr. Brook also released The Laryngectomee Guide, a practical guide for laryngetomees. It, too, is available through his Web site.
