My Bodyby Marion Crook, Janice L. Nusbaum (Foreword by), Sari Tudiver (Foreword by)
This book is a provocative response to questions as well as an acute examination of the tenuous role of women within today's health care system. The author presents compelling interviews with women from various ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds in the United States and Canada that explore how they obtained medical information; their experiences using different kinds of medicine--western, alternative, ethnic based, or a combination thereof; their struggles to realize the role of health and illness in their lives. The author also gives specific advice on how women can obtain not only useful health information but also respect and emotional support from a physician.
