There is a new book coming out this week. It is called The Real Life Body Book, and is written by Dr. Hope Ricciotti (from BIDMC's Ob/Gyn Department) and Monique Doyle Spencer. You can read an excerpt and pre-order it now.
In the words of one reviewer*:
"I predict this will be the current generation's Our Bodies, Ourselves. The awesome talents of Ricciotti and Spencer are brought to bear on the hardest question of the day: how to provide young women with accurate and helpful health and wellness advice that is interesting and engaging enough to want to read. They have nailed it."
The publisher says,
"When you have questions about your health, you want answers from a trustworthy source. In The Real Life Body Book, a Harvard ob-gyn has joined forces with a humor writer to explain the full range of health issues facing young women today. This comprehensive and authoritative guide focuses on whole body wellness and prevention.... If you’re between the ages of twenty-one and thirty-five and you want the latest facts about your health in a language you can understand, The Real Life Body Book is the go-to resource for keeping your body healthy today and for the rest of your life."
