Sex After Prostate Cancer: A Wife's Secret by Lori Wilk

"Sex After Prostate Cancer" is an encouraging book about how to deal with the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, including the medical and psychological aspects.

One of the great things about this book is that it covers everything from the medical aspect (what is prostate cancer, what is the PSA blood test, etc) to the psycho-social aspect (how to adjust to sex afterward, what to do about problems with erections, etc).

The author, Lori Wilk, is very passionate about this topic, and it shows in her writing -- you can tell she has a genuine desire to help others.

Her writing is simple and concise, and only tells you what is important. She shares a lot of personal information and anecdotes, which helped me see her points more clearly.

The section about depression following the diagnosis is particularly informative. All too often we get caught up in the medical aspect of a diagnosis, and we can forget about the psychological aspects. There is quite a lot of information (even statistics from the American Cancer Society)  in this book, but it is organized well and not difficult to follow.

This book is an absolute must-read if you or someone you know is going through a diagnosis of prostate cancer.
