I welcome this book which should become the standard text for undergraduates and postgraduates in the humanization of modern medicine. At last we have two texts that can stand side by side, Communication in Cancer Care and C: Because Cowards Get Cancer Too [by John Diamond], the heads and tails of the humane practice of oncology.
