Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bladder cancer is a major disease, but it has a low profile in the public consciousness when it comes to cancer. One result for the thousands of patients diagnosed each year with this condition is that they find very few sources of reliable information, other than the specific advice of a personal physician. The Guide to Living with Bladder Cancer fills a true healthcare need. It is an excellent addition to medical literature in this era of proactive and involved patients." -- S. Bruce Malkowicz, Co-Director, Urologic Oncology Program, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania

Bladder cancer is a very common form of cancer. It is a messy disease and painful. Despite its frequent occurrence, there is little public discussion of its symptoms or treatments. So until I became a bladder cancer patient, I knew essentially nothing about this disease.
But bladder cancer patients need good information fast. There are critical treatment decisions to be made right after the initial diagnosis, and the choices one makes will affect one's future quality of life to a major degree. Discussions with one's urologist are helpful, but there is much to learn if one wishes to make informed decisions.
Mark Schoenberg's book provides the essential facts to help bladder cancer patients make those critical decisions. I know: it helped me.

Schoenberg writes to the bladder cancer patient. He reviews the various forms of bladder cancer and the treatments for them. This is a scary subject and he is knowledgeable, accurate, and reassuring.
People are surviving bladder cancer today, and the information in this book can save your life. Your urologist or oncologist will not explain bladder cancer as thoroughly as this book does.
Missing from the book are references to bladder cancer internet sites such as the bladder cancer web cafe or the bladder cancer mailing list. This guarantees the book will go out of date quickly, which is unfortunate.
More information about dealing with your doctors and various institutions involved in your care also would have been helpful, although these subjects are covered in other books.

Format: Hardcover
Published in 2000, this is an excellent book for one to begin to get information on bladder cancer. However, we find it is becoming quite outdated. For example, chemotherapy drugs have progressed beyond those referenced in the text and CT equipment is now newer than that which appears to have been standard when the book was written. The authors could do a tremendous service by updating this book, and in so doing, provide a great service to many people with this disease.

This is the only book about bladder cancer that I found for the general public. It's very informative and well written with a general optimistic tone. It was very helpful to understand the diagnosis and treatment options.

written by a very talented and capable doctor. Johns Hopkins is an outstanding facility, filled with top-level physicians.

Dr. Schoenberg rises to the top! He is straight forward and chillingly honest with his patients. You can believe what he says when the patient is under great pressure to make a decision about a very serious condition and surgery. This book is most helpful in helping a patient make a wise decision. I have not found another book that spells it out and tells it as it is. I own two copies and am constantly allowing friends to borrow one while they make this terrible discovery and decision on their life and future. Highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Schoenberg writes not only to the patient but to the caregiver(s). His optimistic and reassuring approach is straight forward, no beating around the bush. The reader obtains a thoroughly well rounded education through Dr.Schoenbergs' discussion of anatomy, analogies, drawings, treatments, and outcomes.
Great reference book should be in everyones library. My suggestion for the book would have been to list the major Bladder Cancer Centers in the United States. Enabling an individual to seek assistance in their own state other than Johns Hopkins, which is a fine Hospital.
I agree with previous reader websites would have been helpful.
Reading this book prior to visting your physician is strongly reccommended.
