5.0 out of 5 stars delivered promptly, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
delivered promptly, exactly what it says on the label, makes better bread than some other brands I've used, package lends itself to excluding air and keeping in plastic bag in fridge better that tins store air above yeast as content goes down


How to Avoid the Over-diagnosis and Over-treatment of Prostate Cancer
How to Avoid the Over-diagnosis and Over-treatment of Prostate Cancer

5.0 out of 5 stars PCa treatment is a hugely controversial field, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
PCa is an absolute minefield of confusing and contradictory statistics and opinions. The writer of this book is at the butt end of his career (he is around 75) and probably more free to tell it like it is than he has ever been

For any man affected by PCa and still undecided which treatment (or non treatment?) to choose it is well worth reading BEFORE he decides on any irreversible action. It might just save you an awful lot of needless aggro

Anyway, that's my take on it

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for any prostate cancer 'newbie', 16 Nov. 2011
Any man weighing up prostate cancer treatment (or non treatment) options will soon find that there is a welter of information and advice available. Nay, more than that. He will be faced with an absolute overdose of often contradictory advice and opinion; and much of it proferred by outright snake oil salesmen

Chapters in the book are written alternately by a patient and by an oncologist and, while neither rejects conventional treatment out of hand, both clearly show that in many cases rapid and brutal radical intervention is not always in the patient's best interest

I have read several books during my past 8 years on 'active surveillance' and for me this one makes a lot of sense. These writers tell it like it is. They do not blindly regurgitate the standard cliches and views (usually edited carefully to eliminate all possibility of litigation)

I wish the book had been available back in 1964 or thereabouts when I was struggling to make sense of it all
