Product Description

TELL ME THE TRUTH

Cancer is one of the deadly diseases in the world. The cancer patients have many experiences and traumas they face during this period and the most excruciating part is to convey the bare truth about the disease.

There are many books on the disease penned by the patients, Tell Me the Truth: Conversations with My Patients About Cancer, Life and Death tells the story from the perspective of a doctor. Ranjana Srivastava, an oncologist, responds to her patients’ questions on cancer, life and death while she seeks to console and nurture them. But as she shares her experiences with her patients, Dr. Ranjana Srivastava also reveals the very human side of the medical profession—the moral dilemmas, anxieties and challenges that an oncologist experiences as she treats her cancer patients.

The book deals with the human faces of cancer and the dreadful facts of diseases. Srivastava in the book opines that the doctors should open up with their patients to understand them more especially with the cancer patients. Cancer patients put up with the most and complain the least, endowed with an uncommon wisdom that is a privilege to observe. It is not simply that they see the big picture; if you spend long enough with them, they help you see it too.

Dr. Ranjana Srivastava is a leading oncologist in Australia’s one of the largest public hospital networks. She pursued education from India, United Kingdom and the United States. She has penned many health related articles in magazines like The Week, The Guardian, Time Magazine, The New York Times and The Best Australian Science Writing. Her articles also appear in medical journals including The New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet. She has the books Dying for a Chat: The Communication Breakdown Between Doctors and Patients in her credit.
