Bill Vancil’s newest book, “Almost an Addict” has received rave reviews and has been described as a book that may well save lives. After three months in the hospital getting a liver transplant and taking pain medication, Bill Vancil emerged physically dependent upon an opiate. His six year affair with oxycodone, and his resolve to rid himself of the dependency, makes for a great read. The book squarely explains the difference between dependency and addiction. Bill was not an addict, just almost.
“Don’t Fear the Big Dogs” was a ground-breaking book, one of the first to tell of proton radiation treatment for prostate cancer, in an easy to read narrative style.

In 2005-2006 Bill Vancil participated in twenty-six Barnes and Noble book signings and more than seventy radio and television interviews. Bill served on the International Advisory Council of Loma Linda University’s Proton Treatment Center for ten years, and has counseled scores of men on facing the decision regarding choice of treatment for prostate cancer.
