CONSUMER HEALTH

Androgen Deprivation Therapy: An Essential Guide for Prostate Cancer Patients and Their Loved Ones

By Richard J. Wassersug, Lauren M. Walker, and John W. Robinson. 

3rd edition. New York City, Springer Publishing Company.

This book is clear, warm, and encouraging. It begins by addressing the silence that usually surrounds the side effects of androgen deprivation therapy, discusses the different drugs available for treatment, and continues by exploring the importance of getting enough sleep, exercising, and eating well. And it compassionately tackles harder issues, like sexual dysfunction and gynecomastia. This is the book’s third edition, and it feels up-to-date and thorough without being overwhelming. Men with prostate cancer and their partners will benefit from reading this honest book.
