This 2008 edition has now been updated - and very substantially enlarged (it is 40% bigger) - and is now available in eight short books called the Cancer: Complete Recovery Guide series.
There are dozens of cures for cancer. When Jonathan's wife, Bernadette, was diagnosed with cancer, Jonathan realised he knew nothing about the disease. "What I needed was a sane, personal, intelligent and critical voice that could lead me through these contending beliefs; that could put both sides of the case and point up the limitations of any arguments there might be. But I never found this voice. So, I have taken it upon myself to provide this voice for others. This then is the book I wish I had had at hand when Bern was diagnosed with cancer." "Chamberlain has a voice that is at once humble and powerful. I like writers that cut to the chase, and then do not skimp on the practical details... and I really like his attitude. He speaks from the heart, but clearly wants you to use your head. Good combination." - Andrew Saul, PhD, Doctor Yourself Website "Thank you for the organization of a fragmented body of information. This book is now the reference book on alternative treatments." - Jim Cole "I now can recommend your book. as 'the' book to read. You have covered just about everything that I have read, and it took me over twenty books and innumerable downloads to do it. The book is more precious than gold!" - Richard Thompson, cancer patient "This book tells me everything I want to know. Why didn't my doctor tell me this?" - Rev. Bill Newbern

Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide is the book I wish I'd had at hand when my wife Bernadette was diagnosed with cancer. This book describes what cancer is; what the mainstream approaches are - and the pros and cons of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy; and what the alternative approaches are: the tests you might want to consider, the detox regimes, the diets, vitamins, herbs, supplements, machines and therapies that could give you a 90% chance of recovery from cancer.
The truth is there are dozens of cures for cancer. But you can't do them if you don't know what they are - and you won't do them if you are not convinced they are the best way of dealing with your cancer.
This `big book' is co-published with a `little book' ( Cancer Recovery Guide: 15 Alternative and Complementary Strategies for Restoring Health ) that provides a speedy overview of the options and strategies. This book is for those of you in need of quick answers now.
This is what some readers have said to me (other testimonials can be found at my Fighting Cancer website).
"I devoured the entire [book] in one sitting. As I read, hope grew and grew. I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You gave us hope when all we could see was despair and you gave us a path when we thought all was lost." - Mrs Colleen Crim
"I now can recommend your book to the people in my support group as "the" book to read. You have covered just about everything that I have read, and it took me over twenty books and innumeral downloads to do it. Thanks again, and no I'm not going to give your hard work away! The book is more precious than gold!" - Richard Thompson
"This book tells me everything I want to know. Why didn't my doctor tell me this?" - Rev Bill Newbern
"The first half of this book was riveting. It made me realize there is no alternative to the alternatives." - Ann Napier
"First of all let me say: Congratulations on your superb book!... Let me say immediately that your book is authoritative, reputable, and much more comprehensive and better balanced than the vast majority of other books on the topic. Also, it has much valuable material that I don't recall seeing in any other book. The book would strongly appeal to cancer patients and their families. ...In fact the tone is engaging and lively and will appeal to anyone sympathetic to alternative approaches to cancer. You have succeeded in making a complicated subject accessible." - Leonard S. Rosenbaum, M.A., Board of Dirs., Intl. Assn. "Mr Chamberlain has a voice that is at once humble and powerful. I like writers that cut to the chase, and then do not skimp on the practical details... and I really like his attitude. He speaks from the heart, but clearly wants you to use your head. Good combination." - Andrew Saul PhD., The Doctor Yourself NewsletterAbout the Author:
When Jonathan Chamberlain's daughter was born with Down Syndrome (she was later to suffer brain damage when a heart operation went wrong, leaving her blind, epileptic and so profoundly handicapped that she could not even sit up by herself) he founded two charities for handicapped children - The Hong Kong Down Syndrome Association and Mental Handicap Network China. So when his wife, Bernadette, was diagnosed with cancer, he brought his proactive instincts to bear to this new challenge.
The result was his first cancer book, Fighting Cancer: A Survival Guide. When this went out of print he re-organised the information and substantially updated it. Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide was the result. This was followed shortly after by Cancer Recovery Guide: 15 Alternative and Complementary Strategies for Restoring Health.
His own personal story about the tragedy of his daughter and then his wife is described in his memoir, Wordjazz for Stevie, which can be downloaded free of charge from his website.
Jonathan grew up in Ireland but lived most of his life in Hong Kong. He now lives in Brighton, England.
