Dr. Nancy Snyderman is a surgeon, medical correspondent for ABC News, a popular health columnist for Good Housekeeping, and the bestselling author of Necessary Journeys and Girl in the Mirror. Dr. Snyderman lives in San Francisco with her husband and three children.From Library Journal:
Snyderman, a surgeon and medical correspondent for Good Morning America and Day & Date, has compiled a well-balanced book on health issues affecting women after age 40. These include heart disease and cancer (the leading causes of death in older women), sexuality, menopause, chronic diseases, mental health, and proper healthcare maintenance. From hypertension to depression, the differences and inequalities between men and women in their medical treatment are also highlighted. Although a bit repetitive, these chapters are succinct and easy to read. Snyderman arms the reader with practical information: signs and symptoms, myths, treatment, prevention, and questions to ask the doctor. Although there are other good books on the subject (notably the more comprehensive The New Ourselves, Growing Older, LJ 6/1/94), Snyderman's medical viewpoint is valuable, and her high profile will attract readers. The "Health Resource Appendix" is not as comprehensive as one might like (important organizations and associations such as RESOLVE are not listed), and a glossary of terms would have been helpful. Recommended for general health collections. (Index not seen.)-Lisa A. Errico-Cox, Nassau Community Coll., Garden City, N.Y.
