In this targeted variation on the general Doctors Book of Home Remedies, coverage runs, in dictionary-encyclopedia style, from abdominal fat to yeast infections. Standard format for each entry includes a general introduction to the topic, general guidelines for determining whether a doctor's visit is in order, and specific advice on such nutritional and environmental aids as honey-lemon tea to soothe sore throats and delegation of cleaning chores by those with allergies. Many entries have sidebars containing advice by female doctors; most of this is unsurprising stuff, such as counseling daily bike rides to prevent arthritic stiffness. Somewhat surprising, however, is the variety of topics included in a book putatively on "the health problems that concern women the most." For besides the predictable acne and asthma, vaginitis and varicose veins, there are discussions of anger, anxiety, boredom, crow's-feet, double chins, procrastination, feeling left out, shyness, and bad hair days. With those gathered under the umbrella of "health problems," why omit greed, laziness, and the other deadly sins? Whitney Scott
