I must make a confession, my reasons for becoming a book reviewer are not entirely altruistic. There is not a book I have read that has not left me wanting more. As a reviewer I often have access to the Author and can ask my ‘icky’ questions. A well used phrase is ‘every picture tells a story’. My version of this is ‘Every story has a story’

The Journey Through Cancer is the poster child for stories within stories. The plot line is simple, Jim’s wife Betty is diagnosed with lung cancer and the book details the 8 month battle they faced.

At just a little over 100 pages it is hardly a daunting read.

Over the past few weeks I have got to know Jim Serritella. He has a wicked sense of humor, that can be seen from the subtitle:

How to Lose 25 lbs. Without Diet or Exercise, and Be Cancer Free in 8 Months

The ink is barely dry on the first copy and changes are already being made. The back stories are glorious and worthy of a book themselves. I am not clear how many of them Jim will be willing to share. At least one of them is already in the wild. The Zantac story is a head scratcher.

It is my hope that Jim Serritella will share more of these asides.
