There are many things which set this book apart. First it is targeted to African American women and distinguishes illnesses and treatments that are applicable specifically to them. Yet, other women can derive tremendous benefit from the detailed information.
Second, the authors present real life examples and true stories drawn from their own lives, and from the lives of the many women with whom they talked and discussed health experiences, challenges, concerns and triumphs.
Third, the authors include unique assessments which readers can take to help them focus on and address their health and wellness issues and concerns. This feature, in my mind, sets a new standard for books of this type.
Fourth, the authors' handling of the topic is broad and deep and includes good coverage of both the physical and emotional wellbeing and other aspects of total wellness.
Fifth, the book is filled with important graphics including photographs which clearly depict the message of this book: African American women can and do take personal responsibility for their own health and wellness.
This book is for the lay person or clinician, the healthy or the ill; It is for women at their prime - whether before, at or beyond midlife.
Men can also benefit personally from this complete and comprehensive guide to midlife health and wellness. I did.
