Man to Man: Surviving Prostate Cancer (Paperback)

Man to Man: Surviving Prostate Cancer Cover Image
Special Order


Although prostate cancer is a disease that strikes nearly 200,000 men every year, it is a disease that has been shrouded in silence, in part because it strikes at the very core of masculine identity.  But in Man to Man, bestselling author Michael Korda breaks that silence, turning the story of his illness and recovery into a candid and instructive book that speaks not only to every man and woman whose life has been touched by prostate cancer but to everyone who lives in fear of it.

With unsparing frankness, Korda describes how he survived the ordeal of prostate surgery and its painful and humiliating aftereffects.  He tells us how tumors are graded, evaluates different treatments, and makes sense of prostate cancer's mystifying "numbers."  Practical, immensely readable, filled with information, and, above all, hopeful, Man to Man is literally a life-saver.
