I found this book review at the Barnes & Nobel bookselling site:
Yocheved Golani has written a comprehensive manual for the ill and those helping the person experiencing a medical crisis. Her approach is compassioante and filled with messages of hope and universal faith.
I found the book to be pro-active, not reactive. In Ms. Golani’s encouragement to use positive language, she enables a reader to look at their circumstance as a point of growth. She has productive exercises for the reader, using one’s own words to approach a medical crisis (or chronic illness) is going to last much longer than the “you should” messages so many ill people face.
The list of resources is a valuable commodity! Whew, everyone experiencing illness should have access to this comprehensive list- it’s action oriented, for sure. Ultimately, the most endearing and enduring message one can receive from this book is: Medical crisises may happen, but who you are, how you manage- it’s in your hands. Pick up this book and be your own best advocate!

Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity.
Face Your Future with Optimism.
Save your sanity, time & money!
You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.
You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?
A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.
I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.
I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.
Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.
