ADT needs to read this outstanding book."

"This new and updated second edition will again be an important and valuable resource for the vast majority of men who are faced with the need to start ADT for treatment of progressive and advanced forms of prostate cancer - whether for a few months or for the rest of their lives. It is a book we will again recommend to patients when they ask us about issues related to life on ADT."
