Dr. Dean Edell is your guide through the media hype, direct to the bottom line. Whether you're interested in advice on sex health, arthritis, or how to spot medical myths, you will see why millions of Americans have come to revere Dr. Dean. His refreshingly candid health talk on radio and television, and in the bestselling Eat, Drink, and Be Merry, is just like Grandma's advice: practical and enlivened with a strong dose of opinion.

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Healthiness is a comprehensive medical resource for the whole family, applying Dr. Dean's practical health philosophies to today's most pressing health topics -- from attention deficit hyper-activity disorder to obesity, depression, and the effectiveness of alternative medicines. This book features more than 500 questions and answers from Dr. Dean's popular radio show, plus quizzes, symptom checklists, Web links, and recommended reading.

You'll also find plenty of often-surprising facts, debunked "truths," and critical details from the latest medical research. This is thebook you'll want on your nightstand, for your family's good health.

Dr. Dean has answered more than 50,000 questions on the air in the lasttwenty-five years. In Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Healthiness, he encourages readers to take charge of their own health with their most powerful weapons -- common sense and a dose of skepticism -- saving time, money, and especially anxiety.

Review:

Popular media doc Dean Edell, M.D., is at the top of his game here, offering wit and wisdom on all things health related. Are you wondering which wrinkle treatments work? Where on the body there has never been a report of cancer? Whether men notice cellulite? What to do about LSD flashbacks, 30 years later? Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Healthiness treats an array of popular health topics, with chapters on obesity, sex, alternative medicine, children, aging, "the business of beauty," and more. Edell loosely follows the successful formula of his radio program, using Q&A format to impart facts, perspective, and often a spirited opinion (e.g. "Doctors will get off their pedestals when patients get off their knees" and "Sex is the most available and direct route to ecstasy that we know"), and includes Web resources. You'll learn about a battery of diseases, conditions, and procedures, as diverse as depression, cancer, anorexia (there's a heart-breaking question from a 5'2" 21-year-old who weighs 70 pounds and wants to weigh 60 pounds), infertility, and herbal medicines. The book is so engrossing that you'll want to read it even if you're not looking for something specific. Edell, a radio doctor for 25 years, currently has eight million listeners. Highly recommended for Edell fans and for folks who haven't discovered him yet. --Joan Price
