From the pink ribbons to the chat rooms to the web sites that sell related accessories and stuffed animals, breast cancer has morphed from a disease into an experience. And at every step of the way, society tells women that this experience can teach them profound lessons, transform them into wiser, more insightful people, and maybe even give them a peek at the meaning of life.

But what if it doesn't?

Five Lessons I Didn't Learn from Breast Cancer is Shelley Lewis' thoroughly modern, slightly contrarian take on doing breast cancer in an epiphany-free zone, where the goal is simply to get through it and get the hell back to your life.

Proving chemotherapy can eradicate everything except a sense of humor. Lewis shares her five strategies for coping, and then reveals the real, not-so-meaningful insights learned from breast cancer, including If you honestly think breast cancer is a gift, you can't come to my birthday and Lie to yourself (it's sooo helpful).

A wonderful interweaving of the author's personal story, interviews with breast cancer survivors, and a sharp-eyed journalist's look at the breast cancer community, Five Lessons is full of unconventional wisdom, unexpected advice, and hilarious observations about life inside the pink bubble.

    " I really liked this book. I don't have breast cancer, however, her realistic, true attitude (and somewhat humorous at times) towards this disease and her journey through treatment provided for an overall informative and good read. It educated me and calmed some of my fears due to being mis-informed. "
