Really, really well done and informative. Extensive research and case studies show how women are systematically misdiagnosed, disbelieved, and neglected throughout the medical system. Fascinating how multiple disease models are based on studies conducted solely on men and therefore women's symptoms are showing up as "atypical"...resulting in misdiagnosis after misdiagnosis. Too often, women's (and, to a lesser extent, men's) symptoms do not match an easy diagnosis and so are brushed off as psychosomatic in nature. I'd recommend this book to everyone as well as Rigor Mortis by Richard Harris.
