    1. For me this is a crash course on the subject and full of pointers for further readings.Catatan bacaan saya ada di sini:irwansyahrir/2017/07/1

    2. A very well detailed book. The author brings out the history of cancer and cancer research in an interesting way for non medical people. Very engaging book and a must read. The conclusions reached at the end of the book are very valuable and thought provoking. The only point I would like to raise is that the author does not discuss / repudiate many objections and points raised by the detractors of the Metabolic Theory of Cancer.

    3. This was a fascinating book written in layperson ability to read. It starts with the history of how they discovered cancer drugs up to the present theory. It goes into several films that I watched about cancer treatments and the way they tested drugs. I learned about the gene mutation theory (outdated now) and the mitochondria theory. The ketogenic diet was described in detail for cancer too.

    4. An important book that avoids controversy whenever possible and shares a story of possibility and hope. Cancer and cancer care is complex. This book in layman’s language simplifies much of the complexity to share that care options may not require billions of dollars but rather more systemic thinking and approach. Like any science story it’s value will be judged by time.

    5. A New Way ForwardFor everyone who has seen the barbarism of modern chemotherapy, Tripping Over the Truth holds promise that there may be a better way. The evidence, as assembled here, demands at least a deep dive into the possibility that we’ve looked at Cancer incorrectly for decades. Compelling.
