I respectully disagree with your take on the book, though some of your criticisms are well taken. I think that you have to first of all consider the book from the standpoint of the largely unaware cancer victim who is considering looking out of the mainstream box rather than from someone who has the extensive knowledge that you do.
I do agree that there is a lot of superfluous material such as all the information and photos of his family and the religious jargon. While perhaps unneccesary, those reflect Ty's deep love for his family and his religious convictions. I could have done without them myself, but given his family background and roots (he did graduate from Baylor University) I understand them and even admire them. I also note that Ty intended the book to be in part a memorial to his mother, father and other family members who succumbed to cancer and led him to his research.
Insofar as the rant about conventional medicine, I disagree that it is not useful or detrimental. Many people who read his book, the same as is true of many who read my book, visit my website or join my forum, are not at all sold on alternatives. Nor are they aware of how wrong and evil the mainstream cancer industry is. I think that opening such people's eyes to what mainstream medicine is all about in regards to cancer is quite valuable.
It may be quite true that some people could find a lot of valuable information at websites. The problem with that is that there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of cancer related websites. How are people to know which ones contain comprehensive and valuable information?
I've read a lot of books about cancer. For an overview of alternative treatments, the cancer industry, and a wealth of information about the best cancer fighting foods and supplements, I agree with people such as Bill Henderson, Webster Kehr and Tanya Harter Pierce that the book is hard to beat.
