This is a remarkable personal account written by one of America's leading experts on human behavior. In telling his story of dealing with advanced prostate cancer, Edmund Fantino candidly reveals the specific aspects of the disease while conveying a larger lesson. The details of coping with a grim diagnosis and the management of treatment form the core of this book, and are in themselves of great value, but the essence of this narrative is larger than one man's personal discoveries about a terrifying disease. The specific lesson is how he managed one of life's most distressing events while still managing to live his life. The larger lesson is a universal blueprint for building constructive behaviors that enable us to live our lives to the fullest.
