    I am sure current medical students receive wonderful training in 'soft skills'. They are fortunate, because I didn't. I just wish this book was around when I was a student and junior doctor. We were all conscientious, but all too often unwittingly overlooked the patient's perspective and fears.Keith has had a tough time to say the least, and so have his family and friends. Some of his experiences were harrowing. His writing style is engaging, and his emotions are never far below the surface. There were times I had to put the book down, not because I was bored, but because I needed time to reflect on his experiences, and understand what qualities drove him to survive this nightmare. Humour is also never far away, and I suspect this was one of his successful strategies.Readers and their relatives with similar conditions will benefit from his compelling descriptions of the tests, treatment, and routines of hospital life. They will surely draw comfort too, and perhaps develop their own success strategies. There are plenty of ideas to choose from.

    That's how Keith refers to his journey many times, and it's certainly that! This amazing book carries you through at breathtaking speed, chronicalling the highs and lows of fighting a horrible illness. It's very honest (which is not always comfortable) but ultimately uplifting, giving a real insight into what it feels like to live through cancer. It has given me a much more profound understanding and made me feel more able to empathise and talk about the subject with friends who are also touched by the disease. Make sure you have a good space of time available when you start reading because you won't be able to stop until you get to the end!

  • By S. Locke on 26 November 2009

    Keith has certainly covered every emotion which touches the life of a person who has been told "you have cancer". He starts at the beginning and takes you through his amazing journey with the loving support of his family and friends in an honest, heartfelt and courageous way. A brilliant read for anyone who has been diagnosed or caring for someone with cancer as it is inspirational and gives a comprehensive detailed account of life as a cancer patient and how you can win. Bangers and Mash - How to take on throat cancer, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and win, with help from an NLP coach

  • By D. Bowler on 18 November 2009

    An extraordinary account of a life threatened and the marshalling of personal strength to deal with it. One has to admire Keith's openness regardng his feelings throughout the discovery of the tiny lump and treatment, the emotions laid bare and the sheer terror at the potential meaning of the diagnosis.The breaking down of delivery of the news, the treatment, the whole experience into phases in a journey to the final target seems to have helped immensely in Keith's handling of the illness.I received the book in the morning, finished it by lunchtime.Delighted with the ending......

  • By T. Evans on 19 November 2009

    I read this book knowing what my cousin had gone through as a breast cancer sufferer. However throat cancer looks as much if not more than horrific. It really opened my eyes and made me so grateful that we have such a wonderful National Health Service! Keiths account of his ordeal was terrible, in that it is truly amazing what he had to endure, but he has written in an upbeat manner and with a sense of humour. I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone. It makes you glad to be alive. I wish the author a long and healthy future now he is recovered.

  • By Robin Hutchinson on 19 November 2009

    This is a really charming and personal book on a difficult subject that deals with the impact of a cancer in a very readable and accessible way. It's a journey that naturally has highs and lows but I found it helped in adding a fresh perspective not just to the issue of coping and recovering from illness but also with the other situations life throws at us.

  • By Mrs. Sue Blake on 27 May 2011

    I met Keith Hern recently after we were introduced on email via a mutual acquantaince and then discovered we lived near to each other. Small world. I knew that Keith had had throat cancer, I didnt know the timing of this and the man I met for 'a green tea and a chat' was the picture of sparkling good health.Bangers & Mash is superbly written. Gosh, I feel I have shared every inch of your journey Keith. For anyone diagosed with throat cancer or who knows someone who has been, your book would be a welcome relief to thenm I am sure. It's raw. It's real. It's inspiring.I believe tough things happen in life to those who can handle it. Keith, you are clearly a gifted communicator and through the medium of a book, you can now impart hope to others.Well done.xSue

  • By Tom Evans on 27 October 2009

    A brush with cancer is a shock to the system for both the patient and their family. Keith tells of his journey with amazing honesty and clarity and how cancer of the throat takes away your dignity in so many ways.Keith tells the story with humour though and uses that most basic of our senses as his yardstick for health - our ability to taste.Thank you Keith for sharing your painful journey and for giving hope to all that their is a light at the end of every tunnel.
