Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the second editon of Ammer's The A to Z of Women's Health ( LJ 12/15/82), which our reviewer called ``a useful ready reference for the general reader.'' One hundred alphabetized entries on women's health topics have been added to this edition, bringing the total to 1000. According to new publisher Facts on File (the previous publisher was Everest House: Dodd), all material has been updated, and new entries include material on AIDS, cholesterol, infertility, and sexually transmitted diseases. The book was previously available as a paperback; it is now being released as a hardcover.-- Judy Quinn, ``Library Journal''
Booknews
The latest edition of a reference (first published in 1983) for lay readers that addresses topics including the reproductive system and sexuality, aging, contraception, sexually transmitted diseases, childbearing, AIDS, breast cancer, mental health, nutrition, chronic diseases, alternative medicine, and in-vitro fertilization. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Oklahoma Family Magazine
Shouldn't be missed. . . .includes the latest research on infertility, herbal medicines, mammography, designer estrogen, and obscure subjects like beauty parlor stroke syndrome . . . . it is user-friendly to women of all ages.
Ms. Magazine
Praise for a previous hardcover edition : "On your shelf next to Our Bodies, Our Selves, you can now put Christine Ammer's The New A to Z of Women's Health."
