Customer Reviews of The Prostate Cancer Treatment Book

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Very Realistic Book that Provides Information in a Very Straightforward Way I found this book to be very informative. It has a realistic straightforward perspective. Information is not sugar coated, non biased. A well balanced approach to treatment options and perspectives from the leaders in the field of surgery, radiation and medical oncology. A wonderful resource of information for men diagnosed with prostate cancer and their families. Straight forward question and answer sections throughout the book, well done. I would have liked some more information in some areas such as in supplements, nutrition, lifestyle, and actual different treatment process.
