Prostate cancer for men—like breast cancer for women—has very serious psychological as well as physical ramifications. One author of this candid book is the patient suffering from the disease. His account of his diagnosis, treatment over two years, and eventual cure is touching, profane, and often uproarious as it evokes the physical and emotional rollercoaster engendered by this illness.

The result is a comprehensive understanding of the psychological, the physical, and the clinical aspects of prostate cancer.
