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.
