Written by a psychologist active in ostomy support groups, this book will interest most ostomates and those who interact with them. Phillips explains ostomy surgery and care of the ostomy, but the book's greatest value lies in its coverage of the emotional and lifestyle changes caused by an ostomy. The author's conversational tone and use of humor may help to ease the pain for those agonizing over their surgery. The final chapters cover problems faced by people living with an ostomate. A very good book on the subject, although a few illustrations would have helped to explain the anatomy, surgery, and use of appliances. Recommended for most health collections.
