Brutal Honesty by Deirdre Kohler (Big People), R130. ISBN: 9780620487993 - This is a personal account by Deirdre Kohler  of how she battled and conquered a brain tumour that threatened her life.
Her story includes the full cycle from  symptoms, epileptic seizures to surgery and recovery. 
But she is not alone in this battle.  Friends, including an American who had lost his wife to a similar disease, her husband and family and a strong faith helped her.
Information about degrees of brain cancer, the difficulty of diagnosis, decisions to take on radiation, chemotherapy or surgery and at what stage, the process of recovering after the surgery make this interesting reading.
  From medical detail on brain cancer to a sense of compassion, sympathy and admiration, this book has it all.
