The subtitle of this book could have been “How to squoosh cancer in 20 weeks". Here is an excerpt from the book.
“The surgeon dropped what he thought would be a bombshell: 'We will have to remove almost half of the mobile part of your tongue.'

Perhaps I should have gone back to Switzerland to barter a bit more: 'Your colleague in France is offering me fifty percent. Can you make me a better offer?'”
