I am thrilled that my book, Conquer Prostate Cancer: How Medicine, Faith, Love and Sex Can Renew Your Life, was reviewed in the November issue of the Journal of Urology, published by the American Urological Association. The review was written by Dr. Lawrence S. Ross, M.D., a Professor of Urology at the University of Illinois and a former president of the American Urological Association..
As Dr. Lawrence pointed out in his review, physicians tend to be wary of books by lay people, so I am especially proud to receive a positive review in this prestigious medical journal. Below are excerpts from the review:
"Such books are always suspect by the medical establishment, fearful of readers receiving poor or biased information regarding the disease or the treatment options extolled by the patient. However, this book has been well written and is a mix of serious contemplation, real-life experience and humor from a man who has spent his professional life serving and supporting others."
"Weinsberg spares nothing in describing his own angst over his disease, and the fear of loss of continence and sexual function associated with treatment. Having opted for robotic assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy and experiencing a good outcome, his description gives the reader the initial sense of over enthusiasm for this specific procedure. To his credit, the author tempers his enthusiasm with a fair representation of all of the options for managing this ubiquitous disease."
"Patients with prostate cancer and their families and friends seeking something to help them through their experience will likely find this book useful."
