5 out of 5 stars Extremly well written, December 8, 2002

  Reviewer: Allan Adelson from Hazlet, NJ United States

Written in plain English, so you can understand everything that's necessary about bladder cancer. No need to sit with a medical dictionairy to explain terms, since everything is put in plain words. I have bladder cancer and this book has put the disease in perspective for me. I would advise anyone that wants to understand this form of cancer to read it now.

  Reviewer: Midwest Book Review (see more about me) from Oregon, WI USA

Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer and the least discussed: Dr. Mark Schoenberg's Guide To Living With Bladder Cancer tells what is needed to know about symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. Chapters move from the basic initial signs of such cancer to treatment options and bladder preservation therapy. A quite comprehensive portrait evolves.

5 out of 5 stars Bladder Cancer Information, February 18, 2001

  Reviewer: dmfreil from Farmington Hills, MI United States

An excellent well-written,illustrated book on bladder cancer, the disease, the therapy, the treatment, the medical viewpoint as well as patient experiences. The information is top-notch and told in an easily understood format, yet medically correct. Not only is this book great for the bladder cancer patient but also for family members.It helps to cut through all the unknowns and the fears. I highly recommend it. Years ago, I looked for such a book to help understand my father's condition, but none was available. Five stars plus to the author who took the time away from a busy medical practice to help educate the general public.
