We have produced the Core Books List to help public libraries and cancer information and support centres improve the quality and reliability of the cancer books they stock. The list includes books about cancer itself and people’s experience of living with cancer. All the books on the list have been reviewed favourably by our volunteer book reviewers. This list is not prescriptive but intended to help libraries to make informed choices between the very wide range of books available, which can be of variable quality and accuracy.
