Good book outlining most of the basic questions that arise after initial diagnosis. Book explains how stage is determined. I read the 2nd edition and will be reading the 4th edition to see if there are changes in the chapters on chemo and tamoxifen. Nottingham Grade scale was not mentioned - perhaps that was developed after this edition and will be in the 4th ed. Will update review at that time.
Ok just finished the 4th edition. Nottingham Grade is covered but it's referred to as Bloom Richardson...more

As a newly diagnosed breast cancer patient, my doctor, who happens to be the author, gave this to my family and me. It helped immensely. It gives an exceptional explanation of what to expect and advice for the unexpected. It was particularly helpful for my parents and greatly put their minds at ease through the months of treatment and recovery. John Link will forever be a part of me. I highly recommend his books for anyone who is, or knows someone who is, battling this silent killer.

Should have gotten this the day i got my diagnosis instead of flailing around on the web. I'd have asked smarter questions.
