Taking Charge of Your Health: Understanding the System Could Save Your Life by Alice Hodge and Mary Lonergan.
I just wish I had had this book when my mother was fighting cancer. It's a winner.Read other reviews here.
Concise, well written, and packed with valuable information and suggestions on understanding and managing one's interaction with the medical world, this book makes a great gift for someone facing a health challenge - or for yourself. You or your friend will certainly find this book more useful than a potted plant or a hot casserole.
I am not facing a health challenge, but found this book interesting, informative, and good advance prepartation for any future health challenge to me or members of my family. One tip, alone, is worth the price of the book - if a doctor tells you unpleasant news, ask him to put it in writing. So often, when one gets home and tries to repeat the dignosis and options to family, one forgets important facts or has misunderstood what the doctor said.
The book is full of incredibly useful information, charts, and examples. If you or a loved one are seriously ill, it will become your Bible. I am so impressed by this book that I plan to send it to my friends and family as a Christmas gift this year.
