I love this book! The recipes are great and are easy to make, even for someone who isn't a pro in the kitchen. The first 20+ pages read like a wonderful explanation of how nutrition affects cancer and how cancer is studied in people. Perfect for anyone trying to live longer, esp. if you have a strong family history like me.
