It's a Sistah Thing: A Guide to Understanding and Dealing with Fibroids for African American Women

by Monique Brown
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Even though this book deals with a common ailment (fibroids), it is unique because it specifically addresses African American women, who suffer from this condition three to nine times more often than women of other races. Written by an African American sufferer, this well-researched work pulls together an enormous amount of information on conventional and alternative therapies that will be useful to its readers. There are also checklists, questions to ask medical professionals, and exercises that solidify the information provided. The writing style intends to be friendly and welcoming, but at times it becomes too familiar and distracts the reader from the content of the book. Nonetheless, Brown's guide is informative, as it includes both a glossary and additional resources. While there are other titles on this topic (e.g., Johanna Skilling's Fibroids), this book will be especially suitable to patient education libraries or consumer health collections in public libraries that serve a large African American clientele.-Nicole A. Cooke, Univ. of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Lib., Newark
