This book I found still in active circulation at an unamed public library. As of this writing, it is still on the shelf. For the love of libraries, why is this still in circulation? Please don’t tell me about how you have new stuff too or it is better than nothing. For a public library, this is a slam dunk weeder. No excuses.
Since I have been finding way too many of these cancer books from the 70s, 80s and 90s still on library shelves lately, I can’t emphasisize enough how these really need to go. Aside from the outdated information, the attitude of recovery is less than optimistic. Back then, a cancer diagnosis was nearly a death sentence and chemo barely survivable. A library patron looking for hope and information is not going to find it within these older materials. Get in there and cull those old cancer books.
