With parallel force to breast cancer'¬?s tug at the heart of a woman's self-image, prostate cancer strikes a man at the core of his masculinity. This account of one man's battle with prostate cancer resonates with the plights of thousands of men. But what sets HIT BELOW THE BELT apart is the author'¬?s perspective as a physician-in particular, his experiences as an oncologist. An ordinary patient with an extraordinary background, Ralph Berberich captures both the medical side of the disease and the fragility of a human being confronted by a life-threatening illness-as well as the process of education that enables him to cope with his diagnosis. HIT BELOW THE BELT deviates both from medical accounts, which are often dry and unsympathetic, and inspirational books on the subject, which lack specificity and depth. Instead, Berberich gives an honest, highly personal, and often poignant telling of the details of his struggle.show more
