Reviews

Diana Rigg
John Bayley

author of "Elegy For Iris"

A really extraordinary book. The medical details are spellbinding. The whole thing shines with courage and amusement.
Sir David Weatheral, F.R.S.

University of Oxford

"Living Proof" does underline the extraordinary chasm between the world of complementary medicine and conventional western practice. The message of the book is far-reaching and teaches us an enormous amount about the stresses and strains of living under the cloud of serious disease. It does a great service to us all.
Robert A. Kyle, M.D.

Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota

Michael Gearin-Tosh is a wonderful writer. He deals with the most important concepts. And he is indeed "Living Proof." All physicians should read this book. Many of us are looking for more effective chemotherapeutic agents, biological intervention, etc., but the role of the "unorthodox" therapies in his own experience and Carmen Wheatley's case report on him -- which is particularly well done -- deserve scientific scrutiny and study.
Candace B. Pert, Ph.D.

Georgetown University School of Medicine, and author of "Molecules of Emotion"

The world has been waiting for this book and I hope, at long last, it opens the debate into the true nature of cancer. What happens when a smart university professor, his life at stake, studies his options and decides his cancer should be treated, not with chemotherapy but with the "crazy" approach of good nutrition, acupuncture, visualization, and vitamins? Well, for one thing, he writes a thrilling, important, informative book. For another, he's still living productively eight years later rather than dying within months like he was supposed to. "Living Proof" is a must-read for every person -- and their loved ones -- who has been diagnosed with cancer.

Diana Rigg I could not put this book down. The story of a man, told in his own voice, who has the courage to take his life in his own hands, the wit to laugh at his condition, and the detachment to choose his own course.
