Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Howard B. Goldman, MD (Case Western Reserve University)
Description: This is an outstanding book for patients with bladder cancer that provides a full review of all aspects ot the evaluation and management of this disease. Written in laymen's language, it provides answers to just about any question a patient or family member could have regarding any aspect of bladder cancer care.
Purpose: It is designed as a resource for people with bladder cancer and their family members. As these patients usually have many questions regarding workup and treatment options, this book plays a crucial role, helping them make informed decisions about their care.
Audience: Although specifically designed for patients and their families, this book would also be useful for primary care physicians as it provides an easy to digest overview of a common malignancy which is encountered in most general medical practices. The primary author is a well recognized author in this field.
Features: This book's strength lies in its ability to present complicated information in a well organized, complete, and easy to understand style. The basics of bladder anatomy and function, the potential symptoms of bladder cancer, the tests used to make the diagnosis, and the surgical and nonsurgical treatments are reviewed. The details of exactly what patients can expect when they undergo testing and treatment, as well as various risks and benefits, are described well. Also, simple illustrations allow the patient to understand the various types of lower urinary tract reconstruction.
Assessment: This is an excellent book for patients with bladder cancer and one which should make our jobs easier by answering most of the questions these patients have. Although I am sure it is not intended to replace informed discussion between patient and physician, it can only help make that a more productive encounter. I now routinely recommend that my patients with newly diagnosed bladder cancer get this book and I continue to be impressed with their resulting level of sophistication regarding this challenging disease.
S. Bruce Malkowicz
The Guide to Living with Bladder Cancer fills a true healthcare need. It is an excellent addition to medical literature in this era of proactive and involved patients.
