 The book Non Compliant List gives an accurate account of the events surrounding cadaver organ transplants from the perspective of a very sensitive recipient and enlightened teachers. This book is not for everyone and should not be read by transplant recipients, transplant candidates, or anyone associated with cadaveric organ transplants. And esp. Connie the woman awaiting a liver transplant and writing a book about her experience.

Thanks for some good reading material! I am writing a book called Surrender. It is my journey from diagnosis to current day. A book in progress (It won't be finished until I have had the liver transplant) it includes photos, interviews, quotes and references.

A good friend of mine Gary Klausner wrote "Never Say Never".  I am going to buy this book today.


If you know someone with CF, they will definitely be inspired by Gary's words.  Whenver I talk to Gary, I always feel uplifted.  I cannot wait to read his book.
