"I picked up this book expecting to be educated, entertained and amused. I was also hoping to pick up some information that would help me offer support to those in my life who are affected by cancer. I put it down having ticked all of those boxes. It's [also] reminded me that the NHS is quite literally the best thing there is in the entire world." - Kate Smurthwaite, comedian, writer & political activist
