Dr. Steven Q. Wang, a world-renowned skin cancer expert, provides an essential guide for people with melanoma and their families in

Beating Melanoma

. The book's unique, practical format approaches the disease in two phases, just as people with melanoma need to do. First comes a step-by-step guide for what Dr. Wang calls the "mad rush" phase-an intense and stressful period from diagnosis to completing initial treatment. Dr. Wang's calm guidance helps readers through this critical time, using an easy to understand plan for ensuring optimal treatment and survival outcomes. Once the mad rush phase is over, the "marathon phase" begins-life resumes its normal shape but with lingering concerns about new melanoma and metastases. Here Dr. Wang addresses common questions about prevention and prognosis.
Steven Q. Wang, M.D., is director of dermatologic surgery and dermatology at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Basking Ridge, New Jersey.

    Good sun suit

    We bought this a month ago for a family trip to Cancun. My only complaint is that the sizes run very large. I used the size chart to purchase a suit for my nine-year-old daughter, and ordered a medium. It was way way too big. I wasn't too surprised because she is small for her age, but it was the correct size according to the chart. I reordered and got the small. It was still big but manageable. As far as the materials and amount of sun protection, the suit works well.

    Blown away

    I liked my hat, and wore it for the 1st time on vacation. I was wearing it in my car, and a gust of wind blew it out the window, and I turned around and looked for it, but couldn't find it. I miss it.

    Free sun hat promo

    I got the free hat as part of a promotion. It was bulky, not flattering and so unstylish that I sent the free hat back.

    Perfect pool shirt

    I bought this shirt for my husband to use at the pool.  Not only did it look nice but was cool and comfortable enough.
