This is a useful book to browse through, particularly for trainees. There are 195 pages of clinical information divided into 13 chapters. It’s a slim book which is easy to pick up and read. It uses case scenarios to discuss various controversies and discussion points on prostate cancer, which makes the topics and the decision-making process more relevant and easier to understand.

Examples are the management of biochemical recurrence after radiation therapy, the management of high risk disease, or the role of radical prostatectomy in a man with suspected metastases. Each discussion point of view is supported by references to key trial data, and the reader is helped by summary tables in many instances. This is a good practical resource for anyone interested in, or involved with, prostate cancer management.
