In the autumn of 1994, Michael Korda was diagnosed as having prostate cancer. For several years he had been examined, tested, and medicated, always with the assurance that everything was all right - until it wasn't. But the discovery of the actual cancer was only the beginning of his ordeal, and "Man to Man" tells not only what Michael Korda and his wife, Margaret, went through but, more important, what they learned. With uncommon frankness, Korda writes of overcoming incontinence and impotence, the truth about various treatments, how tumors are graded, and the reality of the "numbers." "Man to Man" alternates Korda's personal experiences, including the operation itself, with information and advice, as well as stories about his encounters with doctors, other patients, and the growing network of recovery groups. "Man to Man" is frank, informative, and, above all, hopeful - and Korda tells his story with an honesty and intensity never before seen in a book on this subject.
