This review is from: What's Up Down There?: Questions You'd Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend (Paperback)
This book is fabulous. I really did laugh and cry as I read it. Dr. Rankin addresses real life questions with detailed, real-life answers. Being a woman and a sex ed teacher, I know a lot about women's health issues. However, I learned a lot more in her book than I would have imagined.

I know one reviewer disliked the title because it perpetuates the idea that women's genitally is something not to be discussed. From reading this book, I can tell that this is not the author's belief - she firmly believes we should all love our bodies as they are. My guess is the title was a marketing decision by the publisher.

Back to the content. Dr. Rankin is a straight shooter. She tells it like it is and in a charming, revealing way. That is refreshing in the area of women's health. I like the fact that she shares her own experiences as a woman. This approach is empowering. We live in a society that doesn't want to talk about vaginas. Here is a medical professional who openly talks about all things woman, yet in a down-to-earth, non-clinical (yet accurate) way. This book is like a Vagina Dialogue. Let's take the stigma out of our body parts and be open to entire being.

Thank you Dr. Rankin for writing this book. I anticipate you will help many, many women.
