Preve
Reading this book should be required by any man whose doctor has recommended starting ADT, but it should be read BEFORE making the decision to start.

I was diagnosed with high-risk prostate cancer in September 2013 and started ADT in November 2013. I had a reasonably clear, although as it turned out incomplete, understanding of what to expect. Neither my urologist nor my oncologist offered any meaningful explanations. I gathered what I did know at that time from a half dozen books on prostate cancer, but that required that I spend untold hours reading through them to extract the information I really needed. If I had had this book back then, I would not only have saved myself a lot of time, I also would have understood what was in store for me many times better than I did.

NOBODY likes ADT. Period. However, we endure it because it presents us with a key element in our overall treatment plan.

My wife and I learned much of what's in this book through trial and error. If you have been smacked with a prostate cancer diagnosis and, while still reeling from the impact, have been told you need to start ADT, study this book. Take its recommendations to heart. Doing so can save you agony (physical and psychological) and allow to deal with the life-altering side effects of ADT in calm, organized manner.

If you're soon to start ADT, or are already in its clutches, buy this book. It will improve the quality of your life. Honest.

I have been on ADT for about 3 months for prostate cancer, and am a married, 52-year-old computer scientist. I read this book (e-book version) primarily because it is focused on ADT and was published in 2015. While I did learn a few things, these nuggets were buried under layers of annoying, touchy-feely, self-help psychobabble. If you know nothing about ADT, enjoy making lists of "Pros and Cons" and creating and completing questionnaires to help you determine whether you're following your "action plan" for communicating with your spouse, or keeping yourself motivated (etc.) then this is the book for you! Otherwise, the books by Jay S. Cohen MD, or Mark Scholz MD are better choices. I also noticed that the "minutes left in chapter" number at the bottom of each page was almost always 1.

Diagnosed with PC in 2008, my partner's cancer has progressed to requiring ADP. The decrease in intimacy and libido began right after diagnosis. It's a shock to anyone to suddenly be unable to have SI after many years of marriage. One never knows how intertwined everything is until it's gone. Suddenly I am alone and wondering what my role us to be. At least it feels like I am alone. This book explains the effects of ADT on couples and suggestions about overcoming many of the issues. It's a bit painful to read, but made me think honestly about what is happening to us as a couple. I gave it 4 stars as some of the suggestions seem repetitive on paper; could be done without. This title should be recommended to all persons facing androgen deprivation therapy. It would really help not to go into these changes blind; to make plans before the side effects are present. Now I am asking my partner to read it.

This book speaks of feeling, loving, touching, finding new ways to replace what you've lost to low libido. How about NO-Libido with ADT? That is what you are left with. It's not about penetrative sex it's about no desire whatsoever. And everything else I've read spews out the same rhetoric. I will get several more years of life because of ADT but living life as a eunuch is not pleasurable. I may not have the ability to have intimacy because of a lost libido but I do have a memory of what I once had and have not been able to refind it. And it sure isn't in a book.

This is the most helpful book I found for ADT patients. It inspired an exercise program that improved both mental and physical feelings of well being. After reading many useful guides for prostate cancer issues, this one was the best in terms of the magnitude of side affects and their management for ADT treatment. Every one who receives this sort of therapy ought to read the book, before therapy, if possible. If you know of someone undergoing ADT, advise them to read this. The authors have filled in the tremendous gap left by most (not all) oncologists regarding the potential stress of ADT. This book proves the "essential" of the title.

Great explanation for anyone dealing prostate cancer. It has lots of the explanations the doctors rarely take the time to discuss!
