From Library Journal:

Dackman, a sexually active young woman, was traumatized by a diagnosis of breast cancer and the prospect of facing life as a "single-breasted woman." Recovering from a mastectomy, and attempting to cope with an altered body image, she found little practical advice for resuming her sex life. So she recorded her personal experiences in this graphically descriptive guide, which is packed with intimate details of her sexual escapades as a post-mastectomy patient. She includes much information about breast reconstruction. The issue of sexuality and the psychological and emotional impact of a mastectomy are very significant issues, but Dackman's emphasis is on nitty-gritty matters, such as whether to wear a negligee for a lover, what kind to select, etc. The treatment will have great appeal to readers of Cosmopolitan .

From Publishers Weekly:

Following the trauma of a mastectomy, Dackman, a museum public relations director in San Francisco, found little help in books or support groups regarding the effects of the operation on sexuality. In this candid account, expanded from a 1987 Vogue article, she discusses her experience. Dackman details her surgery and breast reconstruction and goes on to describe altered relationships with family, friends and lovers. Reclaiming her body's wellness and rebuilding her self-image proved the keys to risking her first desperate, but eventually successful sexual intimacies. The book will be a boon to readers in a similar situation. First serial to Self.
