ForeWord Reviews, USA, is pleased to announce that Breast Cancer: Taking Control won a 2010 Book of the Year Award in the Health Category. Representing more than 350 publishers, the finalists were selected from over 1500 entries in 56 categories. These books are examples of independent publishing at its finest. Award winners are chosen from real librarians and booksellers, who are on the front lines everyday working with patrons and customers. Breast Cancer:Taking Control was one of 12 finalists for the 2010 Book of the Year Awards in the Health category and was awarded the Bronze Award on Saturday 25 June at the American Library Association Meeting in new Orleans. "Receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer is devastating and when the shock begins to subside there is an overwhelming need to gain as much information as possible about what is to come. For many people, like me, the first port of call is the internet. There's certainly plenty of information scattered across the web but not all of it is helpful, a lot of it is inaccurate and some of it will only add to your fears. I only wish that I had a copy of "Breast Cancer: Taking Control" by Australian breast cancer specialist, Professor John Boyages in my hands at the very beginning. This is a book that you can dip in and out off, throughout treatment and I definitely would recommend it to anyone recently diagnosed with breast cancer as well as to those closely involved in their care and recovery." - Aboutmygeneration.com February 2012
