"Highly recommended. Lucid, in-depth coverage of what you need to know." --Alan Rees, Alan Rees on Consumer Health, A Majors Report


"This is an extremely thorough, up-to-date resource book containing a wealth of practical information for both newly diagnosed and long-term survivors and caregivers. Ms Johnston has a degree in life sciences and a family history of several cancers, including colorectal, which no doubt contributes to her empathetic approach. Although I am a four year survivor of colorectal cancer and have read everything I could find about the disease, there is a great deal of information in this book that I have never come across previously, such as individualized prognostic factors and detailed descriptions of various tests and procedures. [A]n indispensable reference guide." --Colorectal Cancer Assoc of Canada newsletter, book review


"Highly recommended by OncoLink. It is one of the best resources available specifically for colorectal cancer. An important addition to any colorectal cancer patient's library." --James Metz, MD, University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center, writing for Oncolink (www.oncolink.org)


"Lorraine's book, Colon and Rectal Cancer is great. I couldn't put it down. I sure wish it had been available when I was first diagnosed--with all the resources, facts about procedures, treatments, hospital stays, and explanations of blood work. You're just reeling at diagnosis; to have all this information at your fingertips is such a big help. I wouldn't change a thing: informative, down-to-earth, easily understandable, and very touching." --Pati Lanning, Colon cancer survivor


"Lorraine Johnston's Colon and Rectal Cancer is a must-have guide to navigating the maze of colorectal cancer. From its clear explanation of possible symptoms and screening methods, to its easy-to-understand discussion of diagnosis, treatment and recovery, this book is an invaluable resource. I believe the reader will find this thorough and uplifting book as hard to put down as I did." --Pati Lanning, founding member of the Colon Cancer Alliance, active volunteer with CCA's Publications Committee, and regular host of CCA Chats.


"Colon and Rectal Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Families is highly recommended by OncoLink. It is one of the best resources available specifically for colorectal cancer.
