MY BOOK: You Can Beat Prostate Cancer —And You Don’t Need Surgery To Do It
My new book, You Can Beat Prostate Cancer, is now available on our website,
www.lulu.com, and on
Amazon. We are currently #5 out of 725 books on prostate disease on Amazon, and the #3 all-time best seller at Lulu Press.
That means it’s being discovered and it is being read
by lots of recently diagnosed men. Nothing could make me happier.
You can read excerpts from the book as well as read what others have to say about it by clicking
on various links on the website. I am more than pleased at the reaction from readers thus far.
My objective in writing the book was to provide a useful tool for newly diagnosed men and their
families. I remember the fear, anxiety and confusion I felt when I received the frightening news
of my diagnosis. And it got worse as I conducted my research. The more I spoke with doctors and
surfed the Internet, the more confused I became.
This book is for anyone who is at risk of prostate cancer, including our sons, brothers, nephews
and friends. The book provides—in layman’s terms—much useful information for
getting properly diagnosed and taking control of your own treatment decision. The pros and cons
of all major treatment options are discussed, including surgery (both standard and
laparoscopic), conventional radiation, IMRT, brachytherapy, cryoblation, hormones and watchful
As you might guess, my bias for proton therapy is evident throughout the book. It’s the
perfect book to give a friend who is struggling with a treatment decision. Those of us who have
already been treated can benefit from the book as it also covers the steps we should take to
prevent a recurrence of our prostate cancer.
Frequently I am asked, “How can I convince my friend that proton theory is the best
treatment for his prostate cancer?” My answer now is “Encourage him and his wife to
read this book. It’s all there.”
