From the Back Cover:

"Not just another medical text. This is a companion work. In plain, easy-to-understand language, it is packed with key information, advice, and common sense."
—Dan Rather, HDNet

"When Norman Morris and I worked side by side at CBS News, his passion for firsthand reporting fired my own enthusiasm and buoyed my own work. Now he has brought to the life-and-death battle against prostate cancer that same powerful instinct for first-person testimony. Good journalism is an early-warning system for the health of democracy and our own well-being, and every man who reads this book will thank his lucky stars for it."
—Bill Moyers, PBS

"As a bladder cancer survivor, I know firsthand how hard it is for men to talk about their diseases—especially below-the-belt diseases—but this book shows us how to do just that, the first step in coping with and eventually conquering any disease. Needed, helpful, and at times inspirational."
—Bob Schieffer, CBS News Chief Washington Correspondent

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you need to know the medical facts about treatment options, side effects, and outcomes. You also need practical advice and moral support from those who have been there.

Prostate Cancer Survivors Speak Their Minds combines expert medical guidance from one of the world's leading authorities on prostate cancer with personal stories of men who have battled and defeated prostate cancer. Survivors tell you what you need to know about:

  • Coming to terms with your diagnosis and preparing to fight the disease

  • The special risks prostate cancer poses to African American men

  • Renewing your sex life as you recover from the disease

Dr. Arthur L. Burnett's open and honest comments put each survivor's story in a meaningful medical context and give you the knowledge, as well as the courage, you'll need to make the right decisions and win your battle against prostate cancer.
