New Zealand author Phil Kerslake relates his experiences and insights with warmth, humour and pragmatism. Enlisting the contributions of some of the world’s leading cancer researchers and practitioners, this world-recognised six-time cancer survivor shows how to use action and attitude to support cancer recovery.

This book shows how:

• To cope with a cancer battle as you never thought you could
• What being a fighter really means
• What being an "active patient" involves in practice

• To convene a life path audit that will feed your will to live
• To create a life with more balance, meaning and fulfilment

It is inspiring, informative, courageous, and life-affirming. It is a recipe for a beautiful life and it moved me deeply … as it will you.”
