" A handy book to have around . . . a common-sense blueprint for healthy living." -The Chicago Tribune
The New York Times bestseller takes us on an empowering journey and changes the way we think about fighting cancer
David Servan-Schreiber's story of his journey from cancer patient to health combines memoir with a clear scientific explanation of what makes cancer cells thrive and what inhibits them. Anticancer is filled with easy to understand charts and diagrams and a sixteen-page color "Anticancer Action" insert that enables readers to make small but essential changes in lifestyle and diet.

Anticancer enables people living with cancer to adopt a proactive attitude to living, even thriving, with cancer and helps healthy people prevent it.
