Editorial Reviews

Review


"[Dr. Melman] operates from the position that men should want to know if they have cancer, and then should want to become cancer-free in short order. A variety of treatment options will achieve this end; Dr. Melman and his co-author, Rosemary Newnham, a medical writer, deliver a detailed, straightforward and methodical description of them all. Illustrations help with the anatomy, and ample attention is paid to the severe side effects all these treatments can have... this book may well supply the cancer patient with what he has difficulty finding elsewhere." -- Abigail Zuger, MD, The New York Times


"For most men who get prostate cancer, the immediate battle takes up all of their time and energy. Many don't know what questions to ask about what life might be like should they survive. Arnold Melman, one of the nation's leading urologists, is on a mission to change that. His book AFTER PROSTATE CANCER: A What-Comes-Next Guide to a Safe and Informed Recovery is aimed at the men who survive, along with the friends and family who are there to support them." -- The Sacramento Bee

Format: Paperback
What is clear in "After Prostate Cancer" is that Arnold Melman is part research scientist, part old-fashioned doctor. The old-fashioned part only means that, as in the days before HMOs and the like, doctors took the time needed to counsel patients giving them a range of ideas. "After Prostate Cancer" personifies Arnold Melman by giving the reader up-to-the minute scientific news and also laying out a range of treatments for both the cancer and also for the very possible side-effects of either the surgery or the radiation treatment. The reader of this book is not likely to be picking it up just to satisfy a random interest, but because the reader or a beloved friend or relative has cancer or has had the treatment (with side effects). As such, in what is a terrifying episode for most men and partners, Dr. Melman also does a superb job calming the reader (aka patient) with commonsense insights and the best of his significant medical experience.

As the partner of a survivor of prostate cancer, I highly recommend this book and wish that I had purchased it when we were deciding on treatment options rather than months later. However, since both the emotional aspects of the disease and the physical realities following treatment are so effectively discussed, buy this book no matter where you or your loved one are in the process of deciding on treatment or at any point following - you won't regret it. "After Prostate Cancer" looks at the physical, mental and emotional aspects of prostate cancer and is co-written in an accessible manner by a urologist with 40 years of experience treating prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction together with a professional writer. This is the first book I've come across that views treating men affected by prostate cancer holistically. The emotional aspects of prostate cancer for the man dealing with the disease and the after-effects of treatment for those surrounding him are underplayed in most of the literature I had read until finding this excellent book. I can't recommend it highly enough both for men dealing with prostate cancer and for those who love them. In fact, doctors and other health professionals would do well to be aware of this book so that they could recommend it to patients and their families.

After Prostate Cancer is a must read for anyone interested in learning the facts about dealing with prostate cancer. In a very clear manner Dr. Melman defines the disease from diagnosis to the various treatment options as well as the side effects that one might encounter depending on the treatment selected. I found the book to be an "easy read" and most informative and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking insightful answers to difficult questions and a clearer understanding of how this disease affects us and choices we can make to improve our lives.

This book is a "must have" for anyone who is about to undergo or has gone through prostate cancer treatment. This book tells it like it is and what to expect and I wish that I had read it prior to the hours of research I did on the internet which only gave me outdated and conflicting information prior to my surgery. The book provides clear, up to date medical information as well a first -hand accounts from men who have experienced different types and complications. read it1

I urge every adult (yes, both male AND female) to devour the contents of this amazing book on prostate cancer--a book which holds a wealth of information on everything from basics to recovery. Kudos to Dr. Melman who shares his wisdom and understanding in a way that is easy for the lay person to understand and appreciate.

After Prostate Cancer, is a must for any male afflicted with this disease. Dr. Arnold Melman has outdone himself with this book. I have been dealing with prostate cancer for seventeen years and this is just the book I needed in 1994 when I first discovered I had the disease. Dr Arnold Melman and Rosemary E Newnham get five stars from me.
