The Prostate Cancer Protection Plan - Bob Arnot

This book was not good.

While it is not a short book, it spent surprisingly little time justifying the recommendations. The recommendations conflict with a lot of other data and theories out there, and I felt that way too much emphasis was put on diet instead of the more effective supplements and medicines that can be used.

I disagree almost completely with the diet recommendations, and since the book didn’t properly explain the benefits, I don’t feel compelled to properly refute them.

On top of that, a lot of relevant and widely-known information was completely left out of the book. Maybe some of that info was not available in 2000, but that’s not much of an excuse to me - the whole book seems to be premature, and the author was clear that most of this was new to him. Maybe wait until you’ve got it more figured out before you write a book.

Much of the missing information is in my current favorite book about prostate cancer - Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers by Blum. I definitely recommend reading that book, but not this one.

On top of all that, this book was loaded with charts and recipes that I have no use for. Glycemic load charts can now be Googled simply, and even in 2000 this was easily available. There isn’t much book left over once the fluff is removed.
