Fleishman MD,Director Cancer supportive ServicesContinuum Cancer Centers of New York:Beth Israel & St. Lukes-Roosevelt HospitalsThis book is the one I wish I’d come across when I joined the fraternity or soon thereafter. It takes a hard look at some of the non-medical issues you may not have thought about. If it has succeeded, you’ll recognize them when they turn up in your life. You’ll learn how some other men have dealt with them and get ideas about how you might manage them in your own way. Not least, you’ll discover some new ways to think about your situation.What this book is not about is treating prostate cancer. There are countless volumes on that topic. It’s about dealing and living with prostate cancer- about handling unfamiliar situations that are going to arise- about regaining a sense of control- about living productively, well and yes, happily to the outerlimits of possibilities.
