Carr spins off her original Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips in this uplifting guide. She begins with her own story the discovery of inoperable Stage IV cancer in her liver and lungs then covers four main topics: diagnosis, mind, body and spirit. Though she admits to having bad days, Carr follows her own advice to "shake off passive malaise." She gathers her support group or "posse" (many of whom supply guest entries), determined not to let cancer "poison" her entire world. Included are helpful sections on choosing the right doctor and learning to live in a self-nurturing manner. A vegan, the 30-something Carr also includes tips for fighting cancer "with your fork." The upbeat Carr makes it easy to forget she has cancer, yet she touches upon some grim statistics: by 2050 half of all women and one third of all men will have some form of the disease. Carr who proves that living with cancer is truly an option explains, "I always try to talk about my cancer in a bold and confidant way." While her hip, chatty style may particularly appeal to a youthful audience, her authenticity and sound advice will resonate with survivors of all stages and ages.
