Synopsis: The landscape of breast cancer has changed. New, non-invasive diagnostic techniques, new knowledge about prevention, new genetics, new treatments, new alternative and complementary resources are beginning to turn breast cancer into a chronic and perhaps preventable disease. Dr. Susan Love, whose earlier work has won the trust of women all over this country and abroad, has entirely revised her indispensable guide to reflect the very latest information. Readers of Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book will learn of the recent breakthroughs in genetic research, of Dr. Love's own work in developing a less invasive and highly accurate diagnostic technique, of the latest studies into preventive measures such as tamoxifen and dietary strategies, and of promising outcomes from new treatments for metastatic cancer. In the same warm, supportive, and often delightfully candid tone that has brought confidence to millions of women, Dr. Love helps each reader plan her own path through diagnosis, treatment options, and the changing world of HMO's and insurance. She also offers sound advice about combining alternative self-care with topnotch medical help.

Review: Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book has been considered the bible of breast-care books since it appeared in 1990. In 1995, Love completely updated the book in a 600-page second edition, including new biopsy and screening methods, implants, the pros and cons of hormone therapy, new discoveries in breast-cancer treatment, and many other topics. Every chapter has been rewritten, with the exception of the anatomy chapter ("The breast, I'm glad to report, is still located on the chest!"). Love presents copious medical information in a simple, welcoming style, and plentiful illustrations make the information even clearer. About two-thirds of the book deals with breast cancer: risk factors, prevention, screening, diagnosis, staging, emotions, treatment options, surgery, alternative treatments, clinical trials, and more. But the book isn't just about breast cancer. It's also about breast development, physiology, bras, nursing, sexuality--if it has to do with breasts, Love discusses it. Love also debunks breast myths: underwire bras do not cause cancer, neither do bruises or injuries; "fibrocystic disease" isn't really a disease. The book includes a wealth of resources: books, treatment centers, and organizations (but no Web sites--perhaps in the third edition?). --Joan Price
