Not the Last Goodbye : Reflections on Life, Death, Healing and Cancer Hardback


This is a story about life, death, healing and cancer.

It is a story about a doctor diagnosed with a brain tumour in his early 30s who started a crusade to inform people about the disease and inspire them to take responsibility for their health.

It is a story about a man who bravely overcame cancer against the odds.

It is a story about the cancer returning and being told you only have 18 months to live.

It is a story about saying goodbye. But most of all, it is a story about living. In this unsentimental and humbling memoir celebrated neuroscientist and psychiatrist David Servan-Schreiber discusses his diagnosis, his emotions, his fears, his hopes and his legacy.

He recounts stories from his life and takes us with him on this extraordinary journey as he shows us not only how to live, how to take care of ourselves and how to fight for survival, but ultimately, how to die gracefully.

This inspiring and heartbreaking book will change the way you look at yourself, your life and the world around you.
