Brain Tumours: Living low grade by Gideon Burrows

I found this book very interesting and extremely helpful following my brain tumour diagnosis and have recommended this to many people already.

Gideon Burrows has written this from his own experience and gathered quotes and stories from all walks of life. I found I could relate to so much of it.

Reading his and others comments through the book made me feel less alone with my thoughts.  It has a mass of information and links to take your research further. I firstly had purchased the kindle version but after many many highlighted sections decided I also needed a paperback copy and now have both which I pick up regularly.

Living with a low grade tumour has so many what ifs, life is now living in limbo but it does help to know others have been where I am and more will follow….

Thank you to Gideon Burrows for this book which I highly recommend to anyone unfortunate enough to need to learn more about brain tumours and the many many questions and uncertainties that follow diagnosis.


Slow growing brain tumours change lives forever.

This readable and moving non-technical guide is about living with a low grade tumour, a diagnosis given to thousands of people every year.

Featuring dozens of personal testimonies from those dealing daily with the impact of their tumours, this book offers information, support and reassurance for those with a low grade brain tumour, their family and friends.

Father of two Gideon Burrows was told he had an incurable and inoperable low grade glioma brain tumour aged just 35. He discovered information was scarce for those with slow growing brain tumours and about the particular challenges patients like him face.

In this book, he shares his own experiences and those of many others as they came to understand their diagnosis and learned how to live low grade.
