Review Text

  • By Pat on 2 February 2012

    This book is one man's account of his experiences being diagnosed and coping as best he can with prostate cancer. It's very open and honest and you get to hear what it's really like from someone who is personally going through all the anguish and pain, rather than from a medical point of view.I found it touching and there's lots of information on what to expect and advice on how to handle it, a lot of which would apply to other illnesses.My only gripe is the recipes! They took up 40% of the book near enough which was far more than I had expected. But, if you like recipes than obviously that doesn't matter in the least.Definitely worth a read for someone in a similar situation to the author or close to someone who is.
