Noch lebe ich! - Der Krebsroman für Männer (German Edition) by Wernher Droste-Gera

By Wernher Droste-Gera

Dieses ist kein Ratgeber!
Sondern eine bösartige, aber aus vollem Herzen ehrlich gemeinte Abrechnung mit einem Geschäftszweig ohne Ethik, ohne ethical. Ohne Mitleid, ohne Zuwendung. Ein Geschäft, das Menschen in höchster no longer nicht nur alleine läßt, sondern sie auch noch bis zu ihrem Tode ausplündert. Das macht fassungslos.

Alles, was once ich hier erzähle, ist wahr! Ich habe es erlebt!
Am eigenen Leibe.
Auch, wenn es niemand glauben kann.
Aber erwarten Sie nicht zuviel. Es werden keine Ratschläge erteilt. Das wäre verbrecherisch unseriös. Für Sie und mich gibt es einfach keine Ratschläge! Es gibt Fakten, es gibt Erfahrungen, aber eben keine Ratschläge. Entscheidungen, die härtesten Ihres Lebens, müssen ausschließlich – AUSSCHLIESSLICH! – von Ihnen getroffen werden.

Und nun etwas Unterhaltung.
