It is not the kind of book that you can say I loved it....I could not put it down, but it is somewhat essential reading for those who have come through the prostate cancer mill and are still here. Me, I am a young married man, 44 years old, and I wish I had found this book when I was diagnosed 3 years ago. The book has been written by and with a certain age group so some of the text is difficult to read when you are angry with the world and somewhat at the end of the process. Nevertheless the information that is there is written for men, and their partners, who are probably feeling around in the dark wondering where to go next. A lot of thought has been put into the details on a subject that is still not discussed openly enough. If you or your partner are facing into a prostate cancer journey this is something that you should consider reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intimacy with Impotence 26 Aug. 2004
By J. Rifkind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
With the more frequent and earlier detection and treatment of prostate cancer in men, the diminished sexual capacity that accompanies treatment for the disease is affecting an increasing number of people.

The basic point of this book is: A couple's love-life does not have to end with impotence or reduced sexual capacity. If a couple is determined to have a satisfying sex life in spite of physcial limitations, this book will show them how.

"Intimacy with Impotence" is written by a couple for couples. With a minimum of preaching it deals with the physical, emotional, and psychological challenges accompanying impotence and gives practical advice on overcoming them. As a survivor of prostate cancer disease myself, I can highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must reading 4 Oct. 2004
By Stephen Corman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book not only covers all of the mechancial and pharmaceutical approaches to Erectile Dysfunction, but more importantly dwells on the social and psychological needs of the couple. Initimacy CAN be achieved with impotence, but NOT without love and understanding. This is well covered in the first half of the book.

This book is a "must read" not only for Prostate Cancer patients, but also to those suffering sexual dysfunction from many other causes whether they be physcial or psychological.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book as a couple before prostate cancer surgery! 4 Oct. 2004
By One Who Knows - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My husband is a physician and I am a marriage and family therapist. This book covers, in a reader friendly manner, the proverbial psycho social medical waterfront concerning erectile dysfunction. The most important message is that about penile rehabilitation, ( to be done with doctor's approval ) to be practiced quite soon after recovery from surgery. Published in 2004, it has all the up to date information on both drug and other therapies. In our opinion, this book should be in the hands of every person considering prostate cancer surgery, so that they will be informed about what they need to do after follow up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Change your perspective of life after PC surgery!! 13 May 2007
By Luis A. Beltranena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book makes you aware of many things nobody told me would happen after I had PC Surgery. Your whole system changes and without help it is difficult to live a normal decent life with your spouse. I should have bought it immediatly after surgery, 3 years ago, but didn't know about it until 2 months ago.

We Survivours of PC should unite to help others with the tremendous resources like this book and many others. Read the book, it will get you back on the right track. Love life is not over after PC!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for any couple 25 Mar. 2005
By John L. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My wife and I are in our 70s with children and grand-children. We have had a very happy marriage, but did not really talk alot about our sex life together. I had surgery 18 months ago for prostate cancer and afterwards experienced impotency. This book was immensely helpful in working through this problem. We read sections together and felt that we could have used it years ago. We have better communication now than we ever did.
