Not the Last Goodbye: On Life, Death, Healing, & Cancer

David Servan-Schreiber, M.D., with Ursula Gauthier. Viking, $22 (164p) ISBN 9780670025916
Servan-Schreiber was a world-renowned psychiatrist and authority on cancer, whose book, Anticancer, encouraged holistic dietary and lifestyle changes to minimize the risks and effects of the disease. By following his own advice and undergoing several operations, he was able to reverse an aggressive form of brain cancer and extend his life by nearly two decades. But despite his best efforts, the tumor reappeared in a July 2010 MRI. Servan-Schreiber died 13 months later, but not before penning this epistle of hope in which he recounts his battle with cancer, his efforts to fully live his final months, and the lessons he has learned along the way. Humbly detailing his fears, regrets, and hopes for his family and those of others fighting cancer, Servan-Schreiber remains till the end a man committed to living. Readers will find this book touching, enlightening, and most importantly, life-affirming. Agent: Susanna Lea, Susanna Lea Associates. (Nov.)
