I bought a used first edition of Dr. Walsh's "Guide To Surviving Prostate Cancer" and later bought a new second edition to make sure that I had the latest information available. I read the 2nd edition and have only scanned the 1st edition. At a quick glance, I don't see much difference in the two.
I would like to give the 1st edition to someone that needs it. If you do not have this book, or have access to a copy of one, let me know and it is yours. First response gets the book. If you want to reimburse the postage, that would be great, but not required.
Disclaimer: I bought the book on Ebay. It was formerly a library book, and the person that I bought it from apparently purchased it from the library when it was replaced with the second edition.
