Globe covers The Real Life Body Book

Here's a nice article in the Boston Globe by Liz Cooney about The Real Life Body Book, written by Hope Ricciotti and Monique Doyle Spencer. The opening:

Dr. Hope Ricciotti has noticed something different about her young patients. A gynecologist-obstetrician in practice for 16 years, she takes time during pelvic exams to explain what she is doing so the patient is informed and at ease during an uncomfortable part of the visit.
But younger women don’t necessarily want to hear what she’s saying. Lying back on the exam table, they might be texting or listening to their iPods.

My readers got early word of this book here.
