The positives outweigh the negatives, making this the best PCOS book I've read so far. The positives are that the book covers a broad range of topics in a simple yet thorough manner, explains the inter-relatedness of the endocrine system, and, for the most part, recognizes that PCOS affects people differently so no one solution applies to everyone. The topics include the theoretical causes of PCOS (it's not definite); what a polycystic ovary looks like (and the picture looks a lot like my ultras ...more
A great source of information for those of us suffering from PCOS.
This book was excellent reading in order to prepare for my appointment after one year of unsuccessful TTC. I feel well-versed in PCOS and have a list of questions to bring to my doctor.

A lot of the content was repetitive, which was good to drive certain points home but the book probably could be condensed. Also, it's written in British English so I had to adjust to certain spellings and word choices.

For anyone with PCOS this is a must. A well researched holistic (mind, body, soul) approach to a syndrome that modern medicine struggles to understand. Comprehensive coverage of all possible remedies, and empowering as well. Living with PCOS is a secret struggle, and after reading, I felt less alone. We are everywhere, stay strong sisters.
This gave me a lot of info that I needed and some great suggestions I'll follow up on with my dr. I want a natural alternative way of dealing with PCOS and I don't want to have to live on medications if I can get things under control without them.

I borrowed this book thru my library but I plan on buying my own copy.
didn't really learn anything new in this book. it's more of a re-hash of all things know about PCOS.. and I even put questionmarks at some treatments. I prefer Nancy Dunne's research by far.
Still, i guess it's a great introduction if you know nothing about it....

Text book information. I have been diagnosed with PCOS since 19 and have been a reseacher since then. I still learned info in this one. Good reference book to hold onto. Nice up to date info for me.
