Reviews From Readers

Clear and understandable writing, very informative without too much jargon. Covers all the angles, from diagnosis to recovery and beyond. … An invaluable resource.

I’ve read several books about hysterectomies in the last three weeks. I found this one to be the best and most informative with simple straight forward language you would hope to gain from any doctor.

I joked with my doctor that after reading this book I could probably do my own hysterectomy! The Guide is well-organized, clearly written (like talking to a VERY knowledgeable girlfriend) and continues to be a great help even as I am comfortably on the road to recovery.
