In the autumn of 1994, Michael Korda was diagnosed as having prostate cancer. For several years, he had been examined, tested, and medicated, always with the assurance that everything was all right—until it wasn’t. But the discovery of the actual cancer was only the beginning of his ordeal. With uncommon frankness, he writes of overcoming incontinence and impotence, the truth about various treatments, how tumors are graded, and the reality of the “numbers.” Man to Man alternates Korda’s personal experiences, including the operation itself, with help, information, and advice, as well as stories about his encounters with doctors, other patients, and the growing network of recovery groups. Man to Man is frank, informative, and above all, hopeful—and Korda tells his story with an honesty and intensity lacking in any other work on the subject.

In the autumn of 1994, Michael Korda was diagnosed as having prostate cancer. For several years, he had been examined, tested, and medicated, always with the assurance that everything was all right—until it wasn’t.

But the discovery of the actual cancer was only the beginning of his ordeal. With uncommon frankness, he writes of overcoming incontinence and impotence, the truth about various treatments, how tumors are graded, and the reality of the “numbers.” Man to Man alternates Korda’s personal experiences, including the operation itself, with help, information, and advice, as well as stories about his encounters with doctors, other patients, and the growing network of recovery groups.

Man to Man is frank, informative, and above all, hopeful—and Korda tells his story with an honesty and intensity lacking in any other work on the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Man to Man brings prostate cancer out of the closet…Mr. Korda tells his story with unflinching candor.”  New York Times Book Review 
“Proves that a single, highly personal moving account of an individual’s illness can provide more education…than every medical text on the planet.”  Los Angeles Times 
“An eye-opening and important book.”  San Francisco Chronicle 
“This intensely candid, engaging and sharply witty memoir…bears witness to the soul-searching, medical options and singularly male difficulties associated with prostate cancer-and will prove an extremely valuable resource.”  Publishers Weekly
“This moving personal account [is] highly recommended.”  Library Journal
“Korda’s account is an essentially positive, often laugh-out-loud funny, and above all, very human book.”  Booklist
