Why this book?
I was drawn to this meticulously written book in part because the author is a professor of pharmacy and my father is a retired pharmacist.

The author offers excellent tips for navigating relationships, the medical field, and evaluating treatment options.
While this book (like mine) is written for readers of all faiths, I appreciated and related to the testimony in the final chapter in which the author discusses the importance of his Christian faith and how it has helped him find meaning and purpose through suffering.
