"[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
