The Prostate Cancer Owner's Manual was written to help the 3.1 million American men who have prostate cancer and the 191,000 more who will develop it this year. It is not a medical textbook, but a practical user's guide. Since the two authors - one a medical doctor -- have "been there, done that" they are more than qualified to provide readers with real-world insights.The "Owner's Manual" provides? ?Abundant facts and explanations about the disease, ?Collects and presents data about the on-going test-or-don't-test debate, ?Information about treatments and multiple possible physical reactions,?Details on the physiological impact of prostate cancer and its treatment, and?Data on who gets PCa, what diets are good, and whether you can avoid it.For these reasons, and many more, the "Owner's Manual" is very much a book written for patients and those close to them. The authors -- as well as expert prostate cancer doctors -- firmly believe "that men and those close to them must be prepared for what they may confront -- and not be surprised by changes in their bodies and minds." As the cliché goes, "forewarned is forearmed."

Job Search Sucks! If you are looking for work, will be looking for work, or have given up on the whole job hunting experience, you will know how true that is. But, if you want work, you gotta do the job search thing, so why not get a laugh or two and some great advice along the way? Read it all? Heard it all? Don't be so sure. Being fired is a horrible experience. A layoff may sound less brutal, but in reality it’s just a firing in camouflage; you are still being given the boot, only with benefits (sometimes). Just as crappy is having to reenter the workforce after an accident or illness has shattered your confidence, maybe even stolen your ability to do a job you loved and were good at. Or you have just graduated and have no clue what you really want to do with your life or who is going to hire you without experience. Whatever your story, the fact is, some horrific, brutal, or crappy event has forced you to look for work. You just might find a new idea or two in this frank and funny look at what we all know to be true—Job Search Sucks!
