The Brain Tumor Diaries Scott Norris Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Scott Norris is a long-term brain cancer survivor. In this book he allows the reader a rare glimpse into the body, mind, emotions, and spirit of a brain tumor survivor as he journeys through diagnosis, treatment, recovery, survivorship, and beyond. His experience is told in a raw poetic form because, as he says, "There is no grammar or punctuation surrounding memories of brain surgery, radiation, or Gamma Knife radiosurgery; trying to think again with a new brain; laying in an MRI tube scared out of my mind; experiencing seizures; or trying to learn to fit into a whole new life. There is no grammar that can make the experience seem more elaborate or eloquent, or for that matter any more real. There is just experience. No fluff. No fancy grammar. No big words. No proper punctuation. Just experience. And the impressions left behind."

User reviews about this book
I read this book right after chemotherapy and I feel like I needed it during my journey. I was still able to understand what he went through and better understand my own ordeal (malignant medulloblastoma) I high recommend this book to anyone going through their own ordeal, their family, their caregivers, and even doctors and nurses in the oncology field.
As one who has recently been diagnosed with the same brain tumor this strikes close to home. Scott used a very unique style to capture his thoughts but the result has impact.
This was by far, the most touching book I read ever.

My friend had brain surgery in July. This helped me understand her better.
