I would recommend this book for anyone facing a diagnosis of prostate cancer. It is an unflinching narrative that spares few details of the trials author John Hallenborg undergoes as he deals with diagnosis, treatment and their effects on his personal, emotional and sexual life. Hallenborg's story is both vivid and unsparing. He bypasses the tendency many of us have to self-censor when describing our responses to such a traumatic experience, so as a book it's a strong cup of tea. It will be a valuable resource for any man dealing with prostate cancer; certainly most helpful before decisions are made on a course of treatment but useful at any time thereafter.

You're not likely to pick up this book unless you -- or someone you love -- has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. At this point, when you are filled with panic, confusion and fear, it's nice to have a friend who can hold your hand and support you through the process. John Hallenborg can be that friend.

Life, Sex and Prostate Surgery: How One Man Healed and Was Made Whole contains a lot of pertinent medical information on prostate cancer, but that isn't the principle value of the book. Instead, the author offers an unblinkingly honest personal account of his own experience, answering many of your most intimate questions along the way. At a difficult time, when prostate cancer confronts you, it's good to have the support of someone who has been there -- and survived and thrived.

Insightful, funny, candid, informative and life affirming, this book is a must-read for any man (and the people who love him) who is facing prostate cancer, or may be avoiding being checked for it. The human understanding, wit and wisdom found in this book were not easily come by, but were obviously earned by the author through his experience.

I can be a bit of a hypochondriac and I can rarely read about disease without feeling ill. It's even worse with movies. I've often suggested that movies about cancer should be rated "C" and movies about kids with cancer should be rated "KC." Then I will know to stay away. The one exception to this was American Splendor, the film about Harvey Pekar. The main character dealt with cancer and I didn't feel ill or emotionally manipulated as I watched it.

John Hallenborg's darkly funny memoir is like American Splendor--his struggle with cancer makes for a compelling rather than an emotionally manipulative story. Hallenborg pulls no punches in describing the psychic turmoil a man goes through in diagnosis, in surgery, and in recovery. Also well done are his tales of getting 'back in the saddle' with confidence. Highly recommended!

Well written and spells out the whole deal in plain language. And funny at times, not easy to do given the subject matter. It is abundantly clear from chapter one that the mission of the writer was to bare his soul and to share his personal experience for the sole purpose of perhaps helping others. There is no chest pounding which is so often the case with survivor stories. The content is sincere without being syrupy, informative without being over-bearing and contained just correct dose of urgency so that the reader gets the message loud and clear but doesn't come away feeling scolded.
