Reviews

This comprehensive, well-researched and evidence-based book is written by a compassionate and empathetic healthcare provider whose skills have helped many men in our community. Dr Hughes connects the dots with a biopsychosocial approach that should be the model for all supportive care programs. The total patient and family care paradigm will be much improved if all caregivers read this book and practiced this personalized approach.
