More About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The authors are mother and daughter, the mother being a gynecologist and the daughter a writer--I wish my own mom had been so knowledgeable and forthright about the topics discussed in the book. Again, this book is great for those who are uncomfortable talking about reproductive health with their parents or children.
Also sprinkled liberally throughout the book are odd historical facts about gynecological treatments or conditions, both in American and other cultures. These are sometimes amusing, sometimes upsetting and often bewildering. It provides a good historical context for a realm of anatomy and physiology that is still (compared to many other health problems or issues) mysterious and not fully understood.
Overall, it's a very quick and informative read that I highly recommend for every woman and girl.
The book is written in an easy to understand fashion and makes the subject about as much fun as it can be. I would recommend this book to every woman, but also to the parents of teens…especially those that either don't know all that much or are hesitant to talk to their children.
Also, please note that most of the glowing reviews were written within a few days of each other. Thanks Mom and Dad!
I'd recommend this book to any woman--or any man for that matter! You'll be surprised what you might learn.
