What People Are Saying

Ed Davis
"An upbeat cancer tale, by a prostate cancer survivor, that features jobs, friends, sports and political action in an honest, light-hearted way-without the truck of many cancer-related books that feature causes and cures. A good yarn about good people facing tough times and, for the most part, prevailing."--(Ed Davis, Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Georgia and Player-Manager of Senior National Champion Softball Teams)
James Wylie
"A great book, entertaining and easy to understand, without a large number of characters to keep track of. Well-written by a first-time author, Terry Leiden, who is both a prostate cancer survivor and a great softball player and coach....This book is a story about five survivors who also play softball. Through various methods, they are able to play the game they love. As a retired veterinarian and a prostate cancer survivor, I understand their problems."--(James Wylie, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Player in Old South 65 Softball, All-Star Player,All-Tournament Player, World Team, All-American Team MVP)
Steven Simmons
"Terry Leiden has put together a sometimes humorous, sometimes whimsical and sometimes poignant story about the AARP generation. Drawing on his own experiences as a senior softballer, a senior in America's workforce and a senior lay person, he touches on subjects that affect us all. Whether it be the valiant efforts put forth by a not-so-talented but certainly dedicated senior softball team, the health care issues that confront all of us as we near retirement or the passion to take up a cause and make it known to the general public, Leiden tackles all these situations with verve . . . .I find more truth in this fictional account than in what many perceive as the reality of senior life. Leiden has done what more authors need to do: show senior life for what it really is-a vibrant, contributing and essential factor in America's society."--(Steven Simmons, Senior Softball USA's Clubs & Leagues National Director)

    A great first novel

    A very inspiring story of five or six prostate cancer patients who meet after diagnosis on their initial appointment at the Urological Oncology Department of the Mayo Clinic in Scotsdale, Arizona. Lieden does a magnificent job of exposing the pain and depression of a newly diagnosed cancer patient and delves into their personal lives through their coming to grips with their new condition, mentally and physically. There are moments of sadness combined with moments of side-splitting humor. What an excellent effort for a first time author.
