Review quote

"Prostate Cancer Strikes is just the right mix of medical facts, human interest and whimsical humour. I quite enjoyed the structure of the book paralleling a George Lucas/Tolkien adventure. Gogs' honest and open writing makes for a compelling and entertaining journey." - Richard Lett Comedian, Actor, award-winning Writer, testicular cancer survivor Vancouver, BC

"Prostate Cancer Strikes is an excellent, well-balanced book that has laid bare the realities of a prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Gogs' has taken the somewhat 'taboo' subjects for men, like the dreaded digital rectum exam, incontinence and erectile dysfunction after surgery, and discussed them on a very realistic and real (sometimes comical) level. I highly recommend that all men and their families read this book." - Susan Evans Axelsson, PhD Research Scientist focused on prostate cancer Lund University, Lund, Sweden
