"Without preaching, Guy Corneau provides a global outlook on illness and offers advice for all on how to understand illness and to heal." - Entre les Lignes

In June 2007, renowned Canadian psychoanalyst Guy Corneau was diagnosed with phase 4 terminal cancer. Two years later, to the surprise and joy of his physicians, not only was he thriving, but the cancer was gone. Corneau shares his extraordinary two-year journey: he underlines the importance of using traditional medicine in conjunction with new medical practices, including meditation, cell dialogue practice, and focusing on nature. Corneau does not offer a magic recipe: the struggle against any illness is a difficult one, the outcome often uncertain. However, he underscores that even at its worst stages, it is possible to go beyond the feeling of being reduced to an illness, to find psychological and spiritual meaning in this ambivalent condition, and to use it as a way to celebrate and reaffirm life.

Steering away from preaching and clichés, Corneau humbly conveys his own path, highlighting encounters with exceptional people who gave him advice and inspired him. This book will guide us-as patients, friends, or companions that we all are or one day will be-through the obstacles that lie ahead.

Author's biography - Versilio

Versilio is an editor who publishes authors of novels and non-fiction works, both literary and commercial.

Versilio’s vocation is to concentrate on a restricted number of projects in order to be able to accompany them from their initial conception to the final manuscript, thus ensuring both their digital and paper editions with its partners (Robert Laffont, Albin Michel, Flammarion, Gallimard…).

In order to satisfy the ever-changing needs of authors and readers within a constantly evolving market not only in terms of both communication and direct distribution of information, but also with regard to social networks, Versilio created the Slog. A combination of a S[ite] and a [B]log, a Slog is designed to showcase an author's creative world, to keep readers permanently up to date with their favourite authors and give them a chance to share and discuss their interests with an online community.

Furthermore, in line with the growing demand from online bookstores and the explosion of new media and social networks, Versilio's team includes not only all competences necessary for digital publishing (software engineering, designing, production, marketing) but also for the production of audio and video contents contributing to their promotion and enrichment (podcasts, author interviews, book trailers, advertisements and animations).

Thanks to the implementation of these new solutions in their dynamic set-up Versilio regularly collaborates with leading players in various fields (including Amazon, Kobo, Fnac, Google, Apple, Twitter, &c.) to promote both their authors and their authors’ works.

Versilio shares offices with Susanna Lea Associates in London, Paris and New York, and therefore benefits from an international perspective on the world of books, and the challenges brought about by the evolution of digital publishing.
