Polycystic Ovary Syndrom (PCOS), named after the cysts that may form in the ovaries, is a hormone disorder that causes irregular menstrual cycles, obesity, and infertility, among other symptoms. If untreated, it can lead to heart disease, diabetes, and uterine cancer. This is a book about and by PCOS women (coauthors Boss and Sterling both have it; physician Legro is an expert on the syndrome), which is evident in their easy-to-understand descriptions of the disorder, its symptoms, medical diagnosis, and treatments (including alternative methods) as well as the emotional impact. Colette Harris's PCOS: A Woman's Guide to Dealing with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (LJ 8/00) is a more difficult read (more medical jargon with a more British slant) but does offer a four-point management plan to combat the disorder. Both volumes are valuable to any women's health collection, but Boss and Sterling's is preferable to an American audience with its easy-to-read format, separate chapter on infertility, and important references to national organizations like Resolve.

"Contains inspiring stories from affected women and information about diagnosis and treatment." Jane E. Brody, columnist, New York Times
"In addition to an excellent index and glossary, the book includes great resources on research that is continuing in this field and the importance of participating in clinical trials, as there is still so much that is unknown about this condition. It would be a good addition to any consumer health library shelf." Consumer Connection
