Based on the Simontons' experience with hundreds of patients at their world-famous Cancer Counseling and Research Center, "Getting Well Again" introduces the scientific basis for the "will to live."

In this revolutionary book the Simontons profile the typical "cancer personality": how an individual's reactions to stress and other emotional factors can contribute to the onset and progress of cancer -- and how positive expectations, self-awareness, and self-care can contribute to survival.

This book offers the same self-help techniques the Simonton's patients have used to successfully to reinforce usual medical treatment -- techniques for learning positive attitudes, relaxation, visualization, goal setting, managing pain, exercise, and building an emotional support system.

Good reading

Good book for someone diagnosed with cancer, written some time ago but still worth reading. Liked the second part Pathway to Health. Bought another copy to a friend.

A positive approach to cancer

This book shows us how to use relaxation and visualisation along with goal setting to improve our odds in the battle against cancer (or other diseases). A big help to anyone who is feeling shell shocked after a cancer diagnosis.
