Editorial Reviews

Book Review Digest
The information is accurate, complete, current, informative, and highly readable to the layperson as well as the professional caregiver.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This second edition of Love and Lindsey's comprehensive 1990 title has been so thoroughly revised that, Love notes, only the anatomy chapter remains untouched: ``The breast, I'm glad to report, is still located on the chest!'' New information includes that on mammography screening, the breast cancer gene, the metastatic phase of breast cancer, the connection between mind and body, prevention and the importance of political awareness and action. Also updated are discussions of every conceivable aspect of the breast: from its health and development to such common concerns as normal tissue lumpiness and breast feeding, to issues surrounding breast cancer-its screening, diagnosis, causes, treatment, prevention and the directions of current research. Hormone therapy, silicone implants, breast biopsy, lumpectomy, reconstruction and bone-marrow transplants are also explained. With Lindsey (Friends as Family), Love, who is director of the Comprehensive Breast Center, associate professor of clinical surgery at UCLA School of Medicine and co-founder of the National Breast Cancer Coalition, offers a highly readable book that educates, supports and encourages women to become their own advocates of breast health.

Health Magazine
A guiding path through breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
Library Journal - Library Journal
The book that brought breast health out of the closet is back with a bang. This fourth edition includes preventive steps for gene carriers, future diagnostic blood tests for breast cancer, new aromatase inhibitor therapy, updated information on LCIS, and more. No library should be without this work. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
