"This book will help the reader to be informed and an active caregiver as well as advocate." -- New Age Retailer, June/July 2008
"Easy to read, and easy to follow. You will find the author has great insight, experience, and knowledge in this area and you will find the help offered to be unbeatable. Take it from me, a person who has been there done that - this book would be a GODSEND when you are facing the illness of someone you love dearly." -- Family Product Review, June 2008
"I am very impressed with this outstanding book! Ms. Buck writes with both her heart and her head, and these combine to produce a richly informative guide to hospitalization. I highly recommend Hospital Stay Handbook to all readers, particularly those who have chronic medical problems in the family or anticipate hospitalization at a future time." -- Anita Grace Simpson, BellaOnline's Public Health Editor
"It's difficult enough to go through a protracted hospitalization and several near-death experiences with someone you love. Then you have to learn to navigate the hospital and health-delivery systems. But then to sit down and write out all that you have learned for other people to have as a guidebook to use when their loved ones are hospitalized, you demonstrate the depth of your love and caring for your fellow human beings. That warmth, caring, dedication and basic, common-sense information were so evident in your appearance on Full Power Living, Jari, as well as in The Hospital Stay Handbook." -- Ilene Dillon, MSW, Host of Full Power Living
Readers will admire [the author's] assertiveness and appreciate details of her positive and negative experiences with hospitals and staff. -- Library Journal
