The feel-good prostate cancer story of the year. Time is short for a broke, unemployed animation writer who flunks a biopsy. Follow the medical adventures of JP Mac as he attempts to comprehend the reality of prostate cancer, select a treatment, and snag a new health care provider all in less than two months. Told in a hilarious, sardonic style, Mac strives to keep cool as he wrestles with bureaucratic bungles, medical complications and a difficult post-treatment future. A funny, pull-no-punches tale, this short hopeful essay is a perfect read for guys and their families facing the number one cancer among men.
"I recommend this book for every man who is contemplating surgery for prostate cancer. For one thing, JP Mac is very funny. I believe his ability to find the absurd and keep his perspective even in the most awkward or discouraging situations is one important reason for his successful recovery. His strong support from his wife, Joy, and their family is another. Finally, he talks about the nitty-gritty aspects of recovering from this life-saving but difficult surgery -- something few men are willing to do. He got through it, and got his life back. Reading this might help you get through it, too."
