"The subtitle of this book reads: End Your Silence, Sadness, Suffering, and Shame. It is a huge promise, and what is astonishing is that Rick and Brenda Redner deliver what they promise in the title of their work in an amazing way." (5 stars)
Rick Redner's book is the best of it kind, and possibly the only one. Excellent reading for any man who is dealing with Erectile Dysfunction, considering an implant or has already gone through the procedure. The book covers many of the concerns that men experience when dealing with ED: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The author provides alternatives to handling the questions that can plague men whether they've had prostate surgery, or not. He offers up personal experiences that can be helpful in decision-making and are relatable to men dealing with similar considerations. His technique is honest and forthcoming. I felt like I was having a conversation with the man, as well as with his wife. The book offers support and offers online suggestions that men can check out to further research their individual cases. Personally, I've had the penile implant for about a year now. I wish the book had been available to me before my surgery.
Jointly written by Rick and his wife, this book tells their story living through the extreme highs and lows of prostate cancer, survival, surgery, impotence, Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and eventually Penile Implant. Rather than focusing solely on his own experience, Redner's deep research in the subject is clearly apparent, and he writes with an authority and surety that lends credibility almost immediately. The personal anecdotes mixed with straightforward advice and wisdom give the book a distinctly narrative feel. Rick Redner and his wife are talented writers and courageous survivors who are willing to share their experiences. The writing is striking in its frank, delicate handling of complex emotions, and a positive attitude, revealing a true sensitivity within the author and an inherent desire to write for the benefit of others.

Turn on the television and it seems like at least every other commercial is a seductive femme fatale enticing viewers to buy Viagra or Cialis. ED (Erectile Dysfunction) has become a household and social media word and topic. But at last someone has the courage to thoroughly discuss the condition and offer advice of ‘having been there’ and extending the information to the full spectrum of treatment.
Rick Redner was diagnosed with prostate cancer resulting in radical prostatectomy with resultant impotence when he was 58. In this book he and Brenda guide men and couples through the depression, grief and the inevitable relational conflicts when coping with ED. They set couples on a path to discover healthy ways to think about, talk about, or cure erectile dysfunction. Rick and Brenda share their four-year journey with ED, and the intimate details about their experiences with penile implant surgery. The list the numerous conditions from the Mayo Clinic’s list that cause ED – and there are many in the spectrum.
The interesting aspect of this book is the straightforward discussion of what can be an embarrassing topic. The reason? It is personal history freely shared by a couple both with medical background and with actual experience with ED. Discussions of Viagra, Cialis, vacuum pump, papavarine injections into the penile corpora, and the types of penile implants when all else fails (from the simple bendable penile inserts to the inflatable implants activated my a scrotal pump. But as important as these fascinating facts are, Rick and Brenda spend considerable time discussing the impact psychologically on a couple with this diagnosis (and yes, this is a shared diagnosis!). The encourage support groups (your partner, your family physician, a friend, a professional counselor, your pastor, priest, rabbi, or imam, an online or face-to-face support group, etc.
It is this equal combination of the psychological aspects of ED - the diagnosis, the choices, the options, the effect ED has on a couple‘s life -
together with the facts of what avenues of approach are available in dealing with ED that makes this books valuable and accessible. Grady Harp, October 16
