CANCER ON $5 A DAY* *chemo not included written with Robert Schimmel
From Jamie Reno, Newsweek: "Funny and touching and enlightening. I think it's perfect."
From Nancy Yanes Hoffman, The Writing Doctor: "A brave new book...a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit. Robert Schimmel's courage is inspiring."
From Barbara Bamberger Scott, Curled Up With A Good Book: "...Schimmel steps outside the bounds of his own suffering to make others laugh. To make me laugh. And you."
From Publishers Weekly.com: "Schimmel's conversational account is
particularly ribald, emphasizing the importance a sense of humor can
play in coping, learning and healing.
From Punchline Magazine: "CANCER ON $5 A DAY is thoughtful as it is raw and it's consistently funny throughout."
From HotReports.com: "...a fabulously written book on Schimmel's battle with cancer. He is edgy and hilarious throughout this book. CANCER ON $5 A DAY is a laugh out loud and profound account of one man facing a deadly disease and how he was better to understand himself."
From The Cleveland Plain Dealer: "...remarkable and riveting...this could be the most profanely adult book of inspiration you'll find. But inspiring it is, and moving, without being mawkish or phony. Schimmel is simply too laugh-out-loud funny, and his storytelling too compelling."
From The San Diego Union-Tribune: "It's engrossing and dark, with touches you'd expect from the rough-edged, ribald comic."
