Pamela Ellsworth (Author). Although I had some medical background and found this book to be helpful in anticipating and answering our questions about prostate cancer and our options; my husband found much of the book to be "mumbo-jumbo". There was a lot of medical terminology without enough simple definitions or explanations in plain simple English.

The doctor recommended that I get this book and read it for more information about my upcoming prostate surgery. The book is excellent. It does a thorough summary of the subject, Treatment options, what to expect from the options, and what you can expect after the selected treatment. it was easy to read, but still has a lot of backup data.

Once I had read the book, I gave it to my son so he could could start a lot earlier than I did to keep a very close eye on prostate cancer and the range of tests that can be done for people who have a family history of prostate cancer.

Bottom line: it's a very good book, easy to read, and covers the topic very thoroughly. A must-have for anyone considering the treatment options available for prostate cancer.

This is the first book I read as I explored prostate cancer, and it was a great introduction to the subject, giving me language and data that helped me focus my continued research in other books, on the web, and in discussion. It really contains a lot of helpful information in very clear, helpful language. The only reason I gave it 4 starts instead of 5 has more to do with the Kindle version than the book itself. The charts are very hard to read in the Kindle version; they are poorly copied. (Not to mention that I was having trouble getting it synced across devices, and the idiot rep who I talked to on the phone told me to remove it from my device and download it again. He assumed I had an actual Kindle which keeps a backup, which I didn't. I read Kindle books on my Android phone and PC, and these version don't back up data. So I lost all bookmarks, notes, etc. Again, this is no reflection on the book or the author, just the poorly trained reps at Kindle.)

We were recommended this book by an oncologist. We each read it through several times and found it a great introduction to the disease. It's written in language that a layperson can understand, is well-organized, has section highlights, a very helpful glossary, good index, as well as charts and diagrams. It was just what we needed to begin to study this disease. As we do additional research, we have a good head start on knowing the basics.

It can be a daunting read as it honestly states the advantages and disadvantages of each treatment option, but it's been extremely helpful.

Upon diagnosis of my pc I wanted a source that would clearly describe the disease and its various treatment options. Here is a lucid, compact, authoritative presentation, recommended by my urologist, that provides an excellent beginning for those wanting to understand what lies ahead. The text is supplemented by illustrations and matrix-tables that chart advantages and disadvantages, plus side effects of therapies and drugs. Discusses possible complications, social effects and includes a glossary of terms that will be new to you. The fifth star is lacking only due to the fact that pc treatments are developing quite rapidly so combination therapies and robotic-laparoscopic surgery are not discussed here though that is common to books on pc published prior to 2005. While I have used several other sources, including the internet, I keep coming back to this one for quick reference.

This is a must have for anyone looking at prostate cancer options. It is easy to read, well laid out, and readily understandable. I bought it for a friend and now two other people have already read the the book. Good stuff.

This book is a good way to learn about prostrate cancer. It's written for people with a non-medical background. The print is very small and cannot be enlarged in the Kindle edition. The font size makes some of the charts unreadable. It helps to prepare questions you might have but don't know how to ask when you meet with your doctor and gives you a heads-up on possible treatment plans. If you or a loved one has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer, this book is a good first resource.
I had the shock of being diagnosed in mid-March, and had Brachytherapy performed in early April of this year. My Urologist gave me his copy to read, but ordered my own through Amazon. Got to me in a few days. This book was very helpful in my evaluation of the proper procedure to choose for myself (Surgical removal or radiation). Ironically the information in the book helped me reach the best decision, but helped put me at some ease too; Being filled with detail helps!

What I didn't expect was how fascinating the topic would be, even with my cancer diagnosis. Though I will admit some of the line illustrations could be a hair more detailed, it's still a fine book. Anyone facing this should benefit greatly from this book.
