Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for any guy diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer. I received it as a gift and ended up e-mailing Rabbi Ed to thank him for writing it. I received the book after having made my treatment decision to undergo laparoscopic robotic prostatectomy. I still had serious doubts and worries about the surgery and more so about its aftermath. The book is most informative and really put me at ease with my decision.

Early stage prostate cancer is unique in that the patient generally must decide upon the method of treatment. This was a decision I struggled with for weeks. If I had read the book at that time I believe the selection process would have been much less difficult. If you have been recently diagnosed I wish you well and implore you to read this book. I plan to tell my urologist to recommend it to future patients

Format: Paperback
The book is an account of Rabbi Ed and his wife's experience with Prostate Cancer and the options he chose as a treatment. His Doctor even has an account in the book as well. I must say that once I started reading this book I could not put it down. It touched me through and through and I wish I had a book like this when I first found out that I had prostate cancer. It does a great job of laying out treatment options and side effects. Rabbi Ed did a wonderful job and I appreciate his being so open and honest with his own personal story. It truly touched me.

Format: Paperback
Prostate cancer affects thousands of men every year, but it isn't a death sentence. "Conquer Prostate Cancer: How Medicine Faith, Love, and Sex Can Renew Your Life" is a guide for living with prostate cancer and fighting it as well. With much advice on doing what one can on the medical front, as well as making everyday life more liveable, Rabbi Ed Weinsberg shows much wisdom and sly wit in encouraging his readers to embrace life in their battle. "Conquer Prostate Cancer" is a fine present for anyone faced with the diagnosis.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Brand on November 10, 2008
Format: Paperback
A well written and heartwarming story not which only discusses treatment options in depth but, of equal or more importance, illustrates how both the patient and family dealt, and continue to deal, with a devestating, unexpected diagnosis. The story transcends the specific cancer and would be good reading for patients and families, regardless of the type of cancer. I most highly recommend it.

Conquer Prostate Cancer presents a detailed and touching account of Rabbi Ed and his wife's journey through treatment for prostate cancer, while it also describes the experiences of 19 other men and their wives. Rabbi Ed talks openly and insightfully about treatment options, side effects, and emotional and faith issues. A must-read for all prostate cancer patients, survivors and their loved ones.

This book is very clear and lucid to read. It is just the type of book you want to share with others because it is written with candor, humor, a holistic approach to healing rendered most credible through personal experience with the subject and useful input from medical experts and current researchers in the field.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Paul Schellhammer on November 4, 2009
Format: Paperback
A well-written, well researched, and well-balanced account describing a patient's encounter with the diagnosis of prostate cancer. The dilemma of multiple treatment choices and variable quality of life outcomes are described so as to aid fellow patients in their decision process. I have read the other reviews and the praise is unanimous.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Diana Daffner on November 4, 2009
Format: Paperback
Rabbi Weinsberg has provided such useful information in this book, that I recommend it even if the health challenge being faced is something other than prostate cancer. The natural health suggestions he makes, the relaxation techniques he describes, are useful for everyone, especially someone about to undergo surgery. Most of all, as a sex educator and couples' coach, I applaud and appreciate his open discussion of the sexual experiences and struggles that accompanied his journey to wellness. He and his wife, in their admirable desire to help others, courageously reveal what normally stays hidden behind closed doors. In so doing, they encourage readers to more comfortably relate to their own sexual situation and to explore ways to improve it.
