All about Eve: The Complete Guide to Women's Health and Well-Being

Tracy Chutorian Semler, Author, Bernadine Healy, Foreword by HarperCollins Publishers $16 (588p) ISBN 978-0-06-273248-4
Make room on the book shelf for this informative and empowering guide to women's health. Semler, a CBS news producer and writer, consulted over 300 experts in women's health from across the country in compiling this clear, direct compendium. Initial chapters offer a clear description of the healthy female body and how it works. Subsequent chapters consider a wide range of health problems, detailing various treatment options and what to expect from them. Specific information is offered in such areas as infertility, cancer treatments, fitness and mental health. Included are explicit instructions on giving the Mammacare method of breast self-examination and advice on calcium requirements at various ages. Throughout, Semler reiterates her theme that every woman is her own best expert on her body and its physical quirks, stressing the need for women to be activists in promoting their health and to seek a cooperative, collaborative regimen of health care. Straightforward illustrations supplement Semler's accessible, commonsense approach to helping women get and stay well. (May)
