    Twisted Fate:My Journey with BRCA?from Breast Cancer Doctor to Patient and Back was provided through the generosity of Netgalley, Author, Pamela Munster, M.D., and publisher, The Experiment. It is due to be published September 18, 2018 Twisting Fate is aptly named. Not only is it ...

    Dr. Pamela Munster is an oncologist, professor, and researcher in San Francisco. In 2012, after treating patients with advanced breast cancer for twenty years, forty-eight year old Munster had a feeling that she should ask the nurse practitioner in her San Francisco clinic to schedule ...

    I decided to read this book because over twenty years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was twenty-two at the time. There are many books about the medical aspects of cancer out there, but there aren't many whose authors share both medical and personal experience with a breast ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting, very helpful information, and told a good story. More information on BRCA genetic information than I have read since my Biology of Cancer class, and some helpful info for men who may also have the mutation. The paradox of how hard it is t...

    It was a good read from a medical perspective, but the typos were distracting and the author would change subjects frequently and oftentimes wouldn't come back to the first subject she was discussing. But it was medically informative and overall a fine read if you are a medical profess...

    Munster does a masterful job of weaving together her personal breast cancer experience, stories from her patients and her family, and solid medical information. Four years out from my own diagnosis, this book helped me continue to put the disease in perspective. Every cancer patient is...

    Well written. She puts everything into perspective. ...

    This book is extremely well written and provides a wealth of information on the topic in the title of the book. I highly recommend it to anyone dealing with this awful disease! ...

    Very interesting. We forget that men are also affected by the BRCA gene. It?s not always obvious who carries the BRCA gene. This is a great medical story. ...
