Advance praise from readers of The Booby Blog: A Cancer Chronicle:

The Booby Blog is one of the most engaging accounts of illness I have ever read. In her journey through breast cancer, Hollis Walker peels back layers of experience to reveal psychological and spiritual insights that are the goal of a lifetime. This is a true heroine’s journey—someone who braves dangers with exceptional courage, who then returns to share wisdom gained. This beautifully written account is seasoned with hope and humor, and will uplift and inspire anyone who reads it. —Larry Dossey, M.D., author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

Hollis Walker’s new book, The Booby Blog, takes us by surprise with fresh discovery and soul-making as she walks day by day through diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Her candid reflections help open our hearts and minds to the healing complexity such a journey requires. Hollis’s playful, witty and soulful trek touches universal human experiences so nakedly that we all are potentially moved into deeper connection with Self and soul as a result. Her remarkable human transparency and the ability to write from this quality takes us as readers into luminous territory. This book is a must-read for women being touched by the call to heal through facing illness. —Monika Wikman, Ph.D., author of Pregnant Darkness: Alchemy and the Rebirth of Consciousness 

The Booby Blog is so fresh, so relevant, and so intimate. Author Hollis Walker remains authentic, hopeful and human in the face of fear, darkness, mystery and patriarchal authority. I will buy this book for every one of my friends with cancer.—Amy Sayers, breast cancer survivor

I found The Booby Blog deeply personal and honest, funny and insightful. Hollis Walker looks at the process of finding oneself sick and the path to wellness in a way that takes the reader along for the ride. As a nurse who has gone through breast cancer, I found that much of what she says about the medical establishment really resonates. I think anyone who has cancer, had cancer, or knows someone with cancer would benefit from reading this book. —Shelby Morales, R.N., breast cancer survivor
