Editorial Reviews

founder/director of Our Bodies Ourselves - Judy Norsigian
"In the best tradition of Our Bodies, Ourselves, Terkel and Greenberg have provided a beautifully balanced, evidence-based resource for parents and others thinking about the whole issue of male circumcision. The authors make clear that from a purely 'health risks and benefits' perspective, it is eminently reasonable for a parent to decide either way about circumcision. And they articulate well the various non-medical issues that can arise in making this highly-charged decision for our male child
Ph.D., president, Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality - Rev. Ted McIlvenna
"The Circumcision Decision takes an honest, balanced and human approach to the subject of circumcision to truly help a parent make a personal decision. It covers all the issues, weights all the facts and even discusses all a parent's doubts. It is by far the best treatment of the subject I have seen yet."
official blogger of Parents.com The Dadabase - Nick Shell
"Outside of an often violent and condescending blogosphere, where the circumcision topic gets caught between overzealous extremist perspectives, Terkel and Greenberg provide a safe place for the hot topic to land. With grace, wisdom, and class, The Circumcision Decision impressively presents both sides of the story in such a balanced narrative, that some of us who have already made up our minds beforehand may now find ourselves challenged by the flip side."
FNP, nurse practitioner and childbirth educator - Melissa Hines Bock
"This book is an excellent resource for parents and health care providers to open the circumcision discussion."
