Praise for It's Probably Nothing...
"This book is different than any other I have read in a long time. It touches on a so sensitive subject of cancer. But the approach is difference by using a series of poems, observations, and notations you get a very personal look into how one person deals with this disease. In It’s Probably Nothing…* Micki Myers makes you feel a full range of emotions. I really liked its fresh approach to such a delicate subject matter... Everyone will either have or be touched by the damage caused by cancer, so celebrate this day and all of its possibilities." (Wilson Trivino, PurePolitics.com)
"Artist and writer Myers “decided early on to see the humor in my situation, to laugh in the face of fear.” Her poetic approach to her cancer journey will buoy those going through the same experience and grant them permission to face cancer in whatever way that works." (Library Journal)
"Micki Myers is a lady after my own heart. To eradicate her breast cancer, she endured a bilateral mastectomy, underwent chemo therapy and managed to maintain her brilliant sense of humor.
Her book, It’s Probably Nothing … Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Implants is an extraordinary account of her experience, written entirely in verse. You’ll find yourself both nodding and chuckling as you read her brief vignettes." (Emma Keller, The Guardian)
"Just wanted to tell you how much I admire the book. Great work. I'm sure it will attract a wide readership." – Jim Daniels
"It's been a while since I sat down with a book and didn't get up--or care to get up--until I was done, and I loved doing it with yours. The poems are lovely and funny and sad and the complete opposite of self-absorbed. The coda was perfect ... You've written a great book and, equally, one that is useful." – Dave Newman
"I read it when it arrived a while ago and was impressed. I not only liked the book, I got a kick out of the illustrations (all these years of practice!)." – Ed Ochester
“[Micki] walked a perilous line without a misstep into either of the chasms flanking it: flippancy on the one side or pathos on the other. Intelligent, funny and truthful." – Alison Gordon
“FANTASTIC BOOK!!! I LOVE IT!! Thank you for writing this (from someone who hates books about cancer, and keeps restraining herself from writing one for everyone else to hate).
I'm not sure how to describe why I love your book so much, but I never thought anyone else would suspect that I recklessly practiced my Formula 1 skills on the way to and from radiation treatments. Every page I turned, every poem I read, made me think "Hell, yes! I wish I wrote that!" You make a direct hit with every observation, and I love your voice. Thank you.” - Julia Selinger
