Originally a NYT Magazine piece, the author is a divinity professor at Duke University who presents the devastating story of her struggle with liver cancer at 35 with warmth, wisdom, some complaints and humor. Very readable and thoughtful without too intrusive a religious commentary although her beliefs are prominent and she wrote a thesis on the "prosperity churches" of the south. At the time I started this book, her diagnosis had no personal connection. Now it does and I am grateful for it. The appendices (Do's and Don't's in talking with the patient) are worth its purchase.

I requested this from the library because someone recommended it but I don't really do self-help books. If I were going to, this is the sort of self-help book I would read because the entire premise seems to be that self-help is nonsense and (spoiler!) there is no cure for being human. I mostly skim read it but it's fairly well-written and structured so I would absolutely recommend this to people determined to read this sort of thing.
