About the Author

Patricia Barnes-Svarney was once a geologist and is currently a science writer who’s published more than two dozen books, and hundreds of articles in such publications as Popular Science, Air & Space, Astronomy, Technology Review, Discover.com, and others. She lives in Endicott, New York, with her physicist-farmer husband, growing organic garlic and herbs—and tending to the every whim of her three cats.

More About the Author

Patricia Barnes-Svarney is an award-winning science and science fiction writer--with close to three dozen published works for children and adults. Tired of saying, "I'll look that up," to her more inquisitive friends, she went from scientist to writer in a few short months--and hasn't looked back since. Never one to be "pigeonholed," her books and magazine articles cover such topics as geology, mathematics, astronomy, women's health, the (once and hopefully future) space program, humor, Star Trek, birds, Alex Mack, food, and even cats.

Go to www.pattybarnes.net to learn more about her books, writing, and future publications and events.

Format: Paperback
With such an intriguing title, there was no way I could pass up entering the Goodreads giveaway. And I'm so glad I won!

This is a women's health book, loaded with information about the fairer sex. It's in a Q&A format, with each question being answered in great detail. There are ten chapters total, nine are themed and the last one is of miscellaneous questions. Following this is the appendix, source citations, and resources for further reading. There are also "Them and Us" segments scattered throughout that more closely compare men and women.

Instantly, you can see that this book is incredibly well researched. The author backs up each answer with studies and the prevailing theories. But this doesn't mean the book is boring. It certainly doesn't read like a textbook. Barnes-Svarney make the information interesting and easy to understand. Also, she's funny. There are jokes and funny remarks throughout that make the book more enjoyable.

As for the questions themselves, they are very interesting. Some are things people often wonder about. Others, people just assume they know the answer already. But what we think we know by way of wives tales are dismissed, replaced by facts. Even if you know the general answer to a question already, as was the case for me with some, there is still more to learn because of the depth of the answers. Plus, it nice to be able to give sources when someone says "prove it" to you.

Overall, this book is well written and makes learning about health fun. It is both informative and insightful. I'd recommend it to any woman interested in learning more about how her mind and body works. I'd even recommend it to men who want to understand the opposite sex better.

As I'm sure, with most people reading this book, the title draws you in. Even if you may not wish to know the answer to that particular question, the book has so many more. All of the questions are very interesting, and the answers to some are quite surprising.

I definitely recommend this book to all women out there.
