Weekly Bookline, Jan. 7, 2003
"sound, solid book...a refreshing change from the usual
one-size-fits-all health book for women...a strength is the book's
up-to-the-minute medical advice."
This sound, solid book of health advice for women begins in a rather
original way with a chapter on personality types - because how women
deal with stress and health depends on their personalities. That's a
refreshing change from the usual one-size-fits-all health book for
women, and it helps this one stand out from the pack.
Another strength is the book's up-to-the-minute medical
advice; Carter, a pediatrician, lays out recent medical studies, debunks
fads and upsets a few apple carts. There are surprises: some orange
sodas and root beers have as much caffeine as espresso (who knew?), and
chocolate may be good for you (thank heavens).
Carter's advise is sensible, particularly as she encourages a balanced
eating plan combined with regular exercise or offers sobering
information on heart disease.
book offers strong Christian content and well-integrated ideas about how
faith relates to health.
