Defeating Breast Cancer by Stacey Keen, M.D. Book Blast - win a $25 Amazon Gift Card


Title: Defeating Breast Cancer
Author: Stacy Keen, M.D.
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Health
Format: Paperback

When Dr. Stacey Keen, a radiologist, viewed her own screening mammogram, she immediately knew she had cancer. Defeating Breast Cancer: A Physician's Story of Healing, Martial Arts and Life maps out her journey through diagnosis, treatment, and triumph.

In telling her story, Dr. Keen relays not only her mental and emotional journey, but also her experience with complementary medicine (acupuncture) and her traditional course of treatment (surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy). Dr. Keen is candid, witty, and knowledgeable, and she offers a unique perspective as medical expert, patient, and survivor in one. Doctors, as well as cancer patients and their loved ones, will come away from her uplifting book well-informed, less apprehensive of life-saving treatments, and armed with invaluable resources.

Dr. Keen's tale of survival brings encouragement, hope, and empowerment to anyone struggling with breast cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. Humor, positive attitude, and the best of Eastern and Western philosophy and medicine: I enlisted them all to maximize my chances of survival and to grow through this experience. Those who seek a somber tome about breast cancer should look elsewhere. Those who stay with me through these pages will glimpse a way of coping with cancer that I hope can brighten their lives.

Stacey Keen, M.D., practices Radiology in Maryland, where she lives with her husband, Andrew Alpert. A third-degree black belt, Dr. Keen has studied Bujinkan Ninpo Taijutsu since 1990.

President Tron 7000 by Adam Pfeffer Book Blast - Win a $25 Gift Card



Title: President Tron 7000
Author: Adam Pfeffer
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Science Fiction
Format: Paperback

In 2056, androids have become commonplace—so much so that the United States has elected its first android president. President Tron 7000 might be just what the country needs. He knows all the answers and vows to include everyone in his programs for a new America. Not everyone is convinced, however. Aging reporter Hudge Stone believes that the election of an android must be a mistake. Even though the new president has pledged to end nuclear war and provide better education for all, it seems too good to be true. When President Tron is shot by an angry human being, however, all hell breaks loose. Tron declares humans enemies of the state and sets out to exterminate them, calling all other robots to join him. There is little doubt which side is stronger, and only time will tell what the future of the human race will be—whether humans will survive or be made extinct by the machines they have created. In this science fiction novel exploring humanity’s quest for perfection through technology, humans fight to survive against androids determined to destroy them.
