Book about dealing with brain tumours

I am getting this newsletter from the International Brain Tumour Alliance...

IBTA E NEWS AUGUST-SEPTEMBER 2011  the Web version

They offer a great page of literature on brain tumour books.
I find it helpful to read about others who face particular health issues. There was little when my late parents were dealing with cancer (2005 - 2007).

Navigating Through a Strange Land: The IBTA continually seeks to identify and review books written by patients and caregivers about their brain tumour journey. There is a link to several books here. Ten years ago there were very few books in this category but a pioneering effort was the book “Navigating Through a Strange Land”, edited by Tricia Roloff, and containing chapters written by patients, caregivers and health professionals. Tricia (now known as Tricia Perrine) advised us recently that a third expanded and updated edition had been published in late 2010 and is available through Amazon or directly from Indigo Press at indigopress.orders@gmail.com Make sure you specify the third edition (2010) which has a photo of a lake on the cover.
