This is one of the most if not memoir I have ever read, could not put down. There is nothing left unturned, she puts it all on the line. There is also more than just talking about her Cancer, she shows how she handled it, the center she has, the ways to beat cancer, this is not how she puts it, but you understand. You will not be able to put it down, it is that good. It is more than just a Memoir, read it.
