Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Thank goodness, an accessible medical guide for women that's actually written by women. While it focuses on prevention, it's vastly educational and empowering for when you do find yourself miserably sick or injured--or just curious about a particular health topic. Unlike other guides that combine statistics for men and women, the Women's Wellness Book has dug up the facts that matter to help you improve your health. Supremely organized into 25 skillfully written chapters, it's replete with charts, line drawings, and photos, with helpful "wellness tips" and "wellness warnings" in the margins throughout. Emotional health and sexuality are given much more coverage here than in most home health references, and the sections on menopause and perimenopause (a subject overlooked in many other similar books) are among the most comprehensive and up-to-date around.

From Library Journal

First published as The Women's Complete Healthbook (Delacorte, 1995), this comprehensive guide to health for women has been updated and reorganized to emphasize wellness and disease prevention. The book explains the importance of family history, regular medical examinations, and lifestyle assessment. It discusses choosing healthcare providers and insurance, active participation in one's care, and appropriate care at different stages of life, offering information on nutrition, fitness, contraception, pregnancy, birth, well-child care, menopause, mental health, and various diseases. Unfortunately, the outstanding information on medication included in the first edition is not in this one. Nevertheless, this volume is an excellent source, and its focus on prevention sets it apart from more traditional guides such as The Harvard Guide to Women's Health (LJ 4/15/96). Highly recommended for all collections.ABarbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L., CA

Format: Hardcover
This book provides all the necessary concerns of women in all ages. It integrates the mind, body, environment, lifestyles, stresses and abuses for a holistic view of a woman's health. It starts with what we can control about our health and the many concerns of women in different ages. It talks about the major factors that contributes or limits one's health. A very focus book on complete women's health. I recommend this book as a standard in our home libraries.

A Kid's Review on December 13, 2002
Format: Hardcover
Although this book is dated, the information in it is quite valuable and stands the test of time. I found a ripped copy of the book at a junk sale and started leafing through it. I was very impressed. So much so that I went out and bought a new copy! Diana Dell does a wonderful job, and Debra Judelson, who is some kind of doctor, contributes some useful information too. I strongly recommend this book. I wish it was a movie!

Format: Hardcover
I don't know how this can be the "complete" book of women's health issues when it nowhere even mentions miscarriage. A bit unbelievable. There is no excuse for leaving out a health issue that 25% of women will experience in their lives.
Also, I have had this book for probably 14 years, so of course some information is going to be outdated. I have referred to it a few times over the years, but I am getting rid of it now.

I have a copy of this book that I got from my sister along with some other books. I thot most of the information in there was useful. I wish the Editor had put more work into it though, it is pretty skimpy in some places. Anyway if this book was all the info you had it would be okay. It is worth the price.
