Unlike many books dealing with medical conditions, this book tells it from the view of a patient confronted with life-threatening choices. Speaking from his own experience, prostate cancer survivor Don Kaltenbach cuts through the confusion and controversies. He tells how he avoided surgery and was successfully treated with radioactive "seed" implants (brachytherapy). Kaltenbach describes the entire range of available treatment options, including state-of-the-art Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). This newly revised edition of Prostate Cancer: A Survivor's Guide provides the most up-to-date information that may save your life or that of a loved one.

Don Kaltenbach is the Executive Director of the Dattoli Cancer Center & Brachytherapy Institute. He is also a greater than 13 year prostate cancer survivor. He is a noted lecturer to men's groups across the country and has published award-winning books on the subject and a video recounting his journey to a cure via brachytherapy treatment. A former practicing attorney for nearly 30 years, Don has since dedicated his life's work to increasing awareness about prostate cancer. Don lives with his wife, Nancy, and their three children, David, Graham, and Whitney, in Sarasota, Florida.Review:
