Praise for the previous edition: "Every man who is a candidate for ADT needs to read this outstanding book."
- Patrick C. Walsh, MD, University Distinguished Service Professor of Urology, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institution

Praise for the previous edition: "Excellent, very informative, and comprehensive. Androgen Deprivation Therapy addresses issues sensitively, and is not afraid to tackle important but often ignored topics."
- Paul D. Abel, Professor and Honorary Consultant in Urology, Imperial College London

"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."
- -E. Michael D. ("Mike") Scott Co-Founder and President Prostate Cancer International
