*Explaining what it’s like*

Of the world’s nearly two million women (and some men) diagnosed annually with breast cancer, apparently just one is a psychologist specializing in trauma therapy who decided to write a personal diary with professional advice while overcoming it.

Three years after beginning treatment and more than two after getting a clean bill of health, Dr. Naomi Baum of the Israel Center for the Treatment of Psychotrauma has published her 221-page, paperback account of the journey. The potential audience for Life Unexpected: A Trauma Psychologist Journeys Through Breast Cancer is large: patients with this and other types of malignancies; their families and friends; family physicians and oncologists, radiologists and surgeons; and ordinary people who will become more grateful for their lives after reading about Baum’s ordeal.
