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 Make sure you specify the third edition (2010) which has a photo of a lake on the cover.
