The mere mention of the prostate gland is enough to make men cringe. Long a taboo subject, the walnut-sized man gland can cause mental anguish, emotional aggravation, bitterness, and anger. The prostate often affects everything from sexual performance to male ego-strength. When it is working well, the man’s world is good, but when it is affected by change or disease, the male universe often collapses upon itself.
In The Prostate, Dr. Taguchi tackles the most common prostate problems, treatments, and questions in down-to-earth language. If there is anyone who can dispel the fear associated with prostate issues, it is Dr. Taguchi. Required reading for all men over the age of forty.
Yosh Taguchi, MD, PhD, FRCSC, is McGill University’s first full time academic appointee in Urology (1966). He was Program Director for Urology from 1991 to 1998, and he continues to practice as a Senior Urologist at the McGill University Health Centre. He is best known as the author of three books: Private Parts: An Owner's Guide (1988), an international bestseller that has been translated from the original English into French, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, and Russian, The Prostate (2001), published in Canada, the US., and the UK, as well as in French and Spanish translation, and Zen in Action (2006). He lives in Montreal.
