Autoayuda Resumen Albert Espinosa never wanted to write a book about surviving cancer, so he didnt. He wrote a book instead about the Yellow World. What is the yellow world? The yellow world is a world thats within everyones reach, a world the colour of the sun. It is the name of a way of living, of seeing life, of nourishing yourself with the lessons that you learn from good moments as well as bad ones. It is the world that makes you happy, the world you like living in. The yellow world has no rules; it is made of discoveries.

In these 23 Discoveries Albert shows us how to connect daily reality with our most distant dreams. He tells us that losses are positive, the word "pain" doesnt exist, and what you hide the most reveals the most about you. Albert Espinosa has won several battles with death, which is why his stories are so full of life.

He is powerful because he never gives up. And as a last resort he bargains: he swapped a leg and a lung for his life. He has learnt how to lose in order to win. Hes hyperactive and prefers losing sleep to losing experiences. If you want to tell him something it has to be very good or told very fast. He loves to provoke people but he does it to make provocations seem normal. His greatest hope is that after you have read this book you will go off in search of your yellow world.

Albert Espinosa is a bestselling author. At the age of thirteen, Albert was diagnosed with cancer, an event that changed his life forever. When he was fourteen, his left leg had to be amputated. At sixteen his left lung was removed, and when he was eighteen part of his liver was taken out. After ten years in and out of hospitals, when he was finally told that he had been cured of the disease, he realised that his illness had taught him that what is sad is not dying, but rather not knowing how to live.


The Yellow World

Shelves: let-down , books-i-own , my-opinion I was expecting this to be more of an autobiography. Unfortunately these lists that Albert Espinosa made and that this book consists of were alle over the place and not really my cup of tea. This whole concept of "the yellows" was also really weird and most of the time not even comprehensible. They were between about 8 and 14 years old, and were in the hospital for varying reasons. The 8 year old was in a coma after kids dared him to jump off the highest diving board into the pool in exchange for him forming part of their group. There were 2 kids with cancer, a girl with anorexia, and a boy with heart problems. The series told of the friendships one forms A few days ago, I finished reading this.

Photograph: Linda Nylind for the Guardian "Humorous Spanish books about cancer" is probably a small section at your library. Aged 14, Albert Espinosa was a typical football-obsessed schoolboy from Barcelona. Then doctors found a malignant bone tumour in his left leg. Just as they reached the airport to jet off for one last holiday together, the Espinosa family decided to turn back and fight. Albert spent the next decade in hospital, losing a leg, a lung and part of his liver. He learned to walk four times and endured gruelling amounts of chemotherapy — 83 sessions, to be precise.
