Book Description

Discover Total Wellness for Women Through Natural Healing
From the Introduction:
"The greatest blessing that I have to share with other women is the gift of homeopathy. . . . Every day I see the profound changes that this remarkable method of healing has brought to my patients' lives. That a form of healing that is so simple and elegant and makes so much common sense to patients can transform lives so powerfully, with doses of natural medicine administered months or even years apart, still boggles my mind almost as much as it does the minds of my patients."

4-0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise, and covers most current knowledge..
A short, biceps-friendly "textbook" on reproduction that covers most of the current knowledge in the field. Very well organized, and beautifully set up. Look at those colorful pictures and diagrams. I enjoy reading this book very much. But, when we were preparing for our endocrinology exam, we found something in table 3.4, p.39, on luteinizing hormone structure - it says that the beta-subunit of LH has two carobohydrate chains (instead of one?). Hopefully it's just a small typo. Well, nobody's perfect. I still give it nine out of ten.

4-0 out of 5 stars Course Book
I am currently using this book for a college course. The book is perfect for people first learning about mammal reproduction. The book is clearly organized into subjects. I recommend this book for people who want a foundation in reproduction. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical, informative, fascinating
This is a superb book. It is written particularly for Rolfers, but is essential reading for any other body worker as well. Since studying this book on my own, I have become much more confident doing pelvic massage with male clients. Having detailed knowledge of the underlying structures allows me to explain to men what I'm doing and why. Clients can be informally instructed at the same time they are made more comfortable with touch in this area. For this reason, the book is valuable for all men who want to learn about their own bodies.

The text is clearly written and technical terms are explained. A particular strength is close-up photos of the genital areas of a variety of men. Each of these is paired with a line drawing of the same scale based on that photograph and showing the underlying anatomy. This arrangement makes it easy to relate what one sees on the table during a session with what one is feeling beneath the skin as one works.

Other chapters on foetal and juvenile genital development, posture, and sexuality are also very informative.

I have no hesitation at all in giving this excellent book five stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Penis, Male Pelvis and Pubic Area: Explored in Depth
The author has written an intelligent, frank and provoking book about the area of the body least talked about in an intelligent, frank and provoking manner. I consider this book essential for anyone in the "body work" field. It is a well written authoritive work by a scientist well versed in anatomy, physiology, and somatics. An excellent and important book for any Medical Doctor, Psychologist or Physical Therapist yet easily understood and enjoyed by someone with a less scientific mind. In fact, I consider this book a "MUST READ" for P.T.'s, Massage Therapists, and all body workers, consultants and trainers who work with men. I would also consider this book an excellent primer for any one (woman OR man) involved in a sexual, romantic, or loving relationship with a male. It is the equivalent of the famous "Our Bodies Our Selves" only about men. I recommend this book with highest praises!

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible...
This book hits on a subject that is rarely ever spoken of. It addresses issues of the male anatomy that I've long suspected were problematic, but on which I could never find any information. The book is informative and eye opening. If you're male, you should read this!

5-0 out of 5 stars Letting Go of Tension in the Pelvis
Schultz's work breaks through barriers. By treating a formerly taboo area in body work--the male pelvis--he demonstrates how the lack of attention to that area has only increased the tension that our culture has inculcated in men. Professionally, with diagrams and photos, he shows how bodyworkers can assist their clients in releasing the pelvic tightness that has accumulated over the years for social psychological reasons. This hands on book is a must read for all bodyworkers and is obviously based on a lifetime of experience in the field. He ends with a discussion of healthy male sexuality as opposed to the sexual and postural dysfunction that can result from unhealthy pelvic tension and its resulting malformation. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok, but a tad melodramatic
This was the first pregnancy book I read. Frankly, I found it a bit scary. The authors clearly had a very hard time with conception and with their small-town North Carolina doctors. That seems to have made them a tad fanatical about moms-to-be doing *everything* "right" or they'll never have a child. And I'm not sure the authros' (expectation and) experience of homophobia is particularly informative for those of us in more progressive settings. I very much appreciate the info.

5-0 out of 5 stars *THE* OB/GYN Book for your pocket...
You can tell the medical students at your local teaching hospital. They're the ones with the short lab coats and the pockets bulging with small paper-back books.

For those who are in training to become a Doctor a premium is placed on easily-accessible, highly accurate and important information. I remember going through my clinical rotations and thinking that I needed a "pocket" book for every medical rotation to supplement my massive 20-pound, $100 texts while I was on the wards and in the clinic.

Early into my OB/GYN Residency I got the hot scoop - THIS is the book to keep in your lab-coat if you're practicing OB/GYN. By the time I was a chief resident this book had saved me time and heartache and saved my patients from my blunders over and over. Like all "pocket" texts, this one doesn't contain lengthy discussions. But it DOES contain what you need to get through that night on OB/GYN call. And the next one.... and the next.

The treatment for Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (and hundreds of other common clinical situations)- before it's burned into your brain it's right here at your fingertips. It even gives you concise "go-by's" for how to dictate your operative reports for the most common OB/GYN surgeries.

Since I got my first one a decade ago I've never NOT had a copy of this in my lab coat. I use it infrequently now, but when young trainees seem to need a push towards a clue - I push them towards this little gem.

5-0 out of 5 stars The PERFECT handbook for ANYONE in OB/GYN
This handbook survival guide is a FAST, accurate, useful way to reference any topic in Ob/GYN & Infertility.
As a medical student, this book has allowed me to shine many times over while on my OB/GYN rotation. All students and beyond should own this book. In fact, I feel extremely confident taking my national OB/GYN exam after studying and learning this book. EVERYTHING you need to know is broken down in an easy to read, organized, precise manner containing the most relevant needed information on a topic. Residents and attendings have been amazed at my depth of knowledge since I've read this book. What more could you ask for...

5-0 out of 5 stars OB/GYN Must Have
This book is a must have for any clinician working with Obstetrics and Gynocology. This pocket sized reference covers critical topics and provides immediate answers to questions of issues that arise for anyone working with female patients. The book has easy to read algorithms and charts, information on all aspects of Gyn practice, including uro-gynocology and oncologic staging.

5-0 out of 5 stars Obstetrics Gynecology & Infertility Review
This book continues to be a must have for everybody interested in or practicing Ob/Gyn. It is certainly the most convenient pocket reference anyone can expect to have.

This revision is definitely worth the investment, with updated information in all the disciplines within the field. New additions include the B-Lynch suture, expanded cancer staging and treatment algorhythms as well as expanded information on HRT. I highly reccomend picking up the 5th edition to add to your pocket!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Every page is a must-know.
I bought this 5th edition on Amazon.com and it is worth DHL freight.
It has many great tables, flowcharts, and very good pictures and.. it's really current!.
Now it is a handy but great companion to my OBGY rotation. ... Read more

Truely a remarkable accomplishment! Forget the "Idiot's Guide" and get this book. Simple, to the point, and none of that high tech medical jargon that confusses people. I learned more reading this book than any of the others I read before my wife and I started trying to have a baby.

5-0 out of 5 stars Plain and Simple Language
Baby Girl or Baby Boy--Determining the Sex of Your Child, in Plain and Simple Language, authored by a doctor and a nurse is written for the public in an easy to understand format. Its an easy read at 32 pages but tells all you need to know to apply the current medical knowledge of gender pre-determination--which can increase your odds of having the sex of the baby you desire. The book give information on both topics of how to have a baby girl, and how to have a baby boy. Illustrations are light and humorous. It has sold thousands of copies in the United States, on 6 continents and in 15 countries worldwide. We keep our copy for our son (it worked!) when he grows up and is ready to have our grandchildren.

Book Description

Are you in charge of your love life?

If you think so, you're wrong -- hormones control our sex drives and direct our love lives. In The Alchemy of Love and Lust, Dr. Theresa Crenshaw, a renowned sex therapist and researcher, unmasks the hidden agendas of our hormones as we progress through different sexual stages -- from adolescence through old age.

Along with well-known hormones, Dr. Crenshaw introduces lesser known but potent influences that make up our "sex soup." The effects of these chemicals working together and individually offer insight into some compelling issues:

  • Do people become addicted to one another through scent and touch?

  • Can we determine our romantic destinies by altering our hormonal profiles?

Romantics needn't worry that science will eliminate the mystery of attraction. To the contrary, this program helps us discover romance, rekindle it, and keep it alive. Filled with often surprising information, The Alchemy of Love and Lust explains the effects of our sex hormones and gives us specific, practical suggestions on how to monitor them. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars understanding hormones influence in Love
Everyone should read this book before they think they are madly in love. It will help anyone discern whether it is the chemistry of our hormones or real love, or maybe both. In our lives it is often "hard to see the forest for the trees". This would help alot of people avoid making life mistakes.

2-0 out of 5 stars Chemical determinism is not enough
The author of this book contributes interesting material on the important biochemicals (dopamine, estrogen, progesterone, LHRH, testosterone, prolactin, oxytocin, and others) that influence and help to regulate the universe we think of as "human sexuality." You will learn more than a few things. It seems that a working knowledge of high levels of testosterone can teach us quite a lot. (Women, proceed with caution!)

Unfortunately, she neglects other factors (and there are so many that make up human choices in love and sex: psychology, for example - and whether or not a couple has a single thing besides the kids to talk about after twenty-five years of marriage) that for me the information loses any authority it might have had.

In addition, she has an ax to subtly grind, and it is that men and women in their fifties (and older) have the very best chance for sexual compatability - for a set of specific chemical and biologically determined reasons. This information would seem to argue for couples staying together, but as we know, there are many other factors beyond sexual compatability (which is often fully present in couples who are literally coming apart - in every other way) that must contribute to couples' happiness - not to mention fidelity.

This book has interesting information about biochemicals' influence on our sex and love lives. You will doubtless recognize yourself and your mate in some of her descriptions, but as science it should be taken with a large grain of salt.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chemical Bonding...
The insight of how the range of hormones effects the F/M relationship was wonderful! Hormones is what makes love happen...It explains how these hormones control our thought, how we perform, and the part they play in our associations from birth on up. This book also gives information about Progesterone's and Estrogens and the use of these in Hormone Replacement Therapy. It helps you see and understand the actual chemical bonding which happens between F/M.

5-0 out of 5 stars good book for sex ed course
This is a really impressive work. Dr. Crenshaw can really write about her subject matter. I have used the book is sexual behavior classes on the college level, and my students uniformly approve. the book is well-written and clear, and makes a fairly difficult subject matter easily understood. A top notch job.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book on Subject on the Market!
Very impressed with this book, especially compared to the others on the market covering this general subject. The roles of the various hormones in male/female relationships was especially valuable and insightful. Best of all, the author would sometimes tell you what science doesn't know! How humble and honest. Her acknowledged speculations were also fascinating. Might just save your relationship. Another reviewer criticized it for not being a "relationship" book. They missed the point that hormones make a "relationship" - otherwise its just a room mate situation. Remember the saying "Love conquers all." ? Hormones make love happen and love helps us overcome the certain frictions in a "relationship". Too bad that most of her prescriptions require a prescription and hence an MD. ... Read more

Book Description

Say "biological clock" and most people think "women." Yet men have biological clocks too, reveals Dr. Harry Fisch, one of the country's leading experts in male infertility and author of this groundbreaking new book, The Male Biological Clock. Men's clocks tick at a different rate from women's and of course cause an entirely different set of bodily and behavioral changes over the course of a lifetime. But while men's clocks don't strike a "midnight" toll heralding an end to fertility the way menopause does for women, male fertility, testosterone levels, and sexuality all do decline with age. Dr. Fisch's book emphasizes that even young men can have testosterone levels as low as those of much older men, leading to infertility, sexual problems, and other serious health issues. Another startling revelation is that men over thirty-five are twice as likely to be infertile as men younger than twenty-five. In addition, as men age, the quality of their sperm declines significantly, giving rise to an increased chance of a Down syndrome baby, other genetic abnormalities, and miscarriage. Every couple should know all the risks and issues facing men, because these affect two of the most important things in their life: their ability to have children and their capacity to have good sex.

The Male Biological Clock is must reading for every man and every couple who is struggling to have children or improve their sex life. Many of Dr. Harry Fisch's findings are startling -- beginning with the fact that infertility is not mostly a women's problem -- and he offers many helpful suggestions for how to deal with declining testosterone, changing sexual needs, and the fertility industry.

We have all heard stories of men becoming fathers in their seventies or even eighties, yet most of us are unaware that these are dangerously deceptive exceptions. Older men face a number of increased risks as fathers, and often find their sex lives and well-being changing considerably. The good news: Much can be done to slow down and even reverse the effects of a man's biological clock. The Male Biological Clock tells you what you need to know and how you can achieve optimal fertility and sexuality. ... Read more

With over twenty years of experience as a sex educator and sex therapist, Dr. Terri Hamilton brings you this detailed look at everything you wanted to know about male and female 'private parts' and didn't even know to ask.In chapters such as "A Hose by Any Other Name" she examines historical and psychological perspectives on genital nomenclature and presents over 500 common - and not so common - nicknames.Dr. Hamilton also peers into a Pandora's Box of sexual scandals, untangles the mystery of pubic hair, tells tales of size and sighs, secrets and secretions, folklore and fertility rituals, and unveils the genital origins of numerous modern day social customs. Tantric teachings, medical mysteries, ecstasies and eccentricities, fashions and foibles all have a place in this meticulously researched compendium.Inside you'll find answers to such provocative questions as:

* What do a woman's facial features reveal about the vagina?
* Why was pubic hair left off classic Greek Statues?
* Who "discovered" the clitoris?
* How many girls are born with a penis each year?
* Where exactly is the most sensitive spot on the penis? (the answer might surprise you)
* What does the "evil eye" have to do with the penis?
* What famous silent screen star was said to possess the "Eighth Wonder of the World"?
* What foods increase blood flow to the penis?
* What is the connection between the upper lip and the clitoris?
* What piece of bridal attire has its origins in the hymen?
* What do cool fingertips reveal about a woman's genital area?

Dr. Hamilton explores the history, development, legends, and myths of human sexuality to provide the revealing answers to these and a host of other questions in this fascinating look at our most private parts.

5-0 out of 5 stars How much fun was this? Well, let me tell you...
This is the end-all, totally agreeable ...book. A truly fun and informative read. And, if you are like me, with the proverbial mind's eye, that pictures whatever is being digested through the auditory and ocular senses; well then, you'll find this tome better than most big screen movies. But, then again, the illustrations within it are marvelous, as refined and elegant as the literary style.

As previously noted by the other reviewers, Skin Flutes and Velvet Gloves is an entertaining thumb through and equally compelling slow study. So sit back, relax, and open yourself to some new ideas, interesting trivia, and perhaps some erotic day dreaming. Dr. Terri Hamilton did an extraordinary job! I'd like to shake her hand, as well as pick her brain. Indeed, she is a woman who knows her stuff. So, where is the next book?

5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING & AMUSING...GREAT RESOURCE!!!
my background is not dissimilar to that of dr. hamilton's, and, as such, i am often asked to recommend reading material (by students and clients alike) related to the subject of human sexuality. rarely have i come across something so well-compiled as Skin Flutes & Velvet Gloves. my goodness, the research is nothing short of phenomenal -- allowing the author to fill her pages with rich, full and, i might add, entertaining content.

a number of my students have not only found this book enlightening, but impetus for further study (as least in regard to the broader subject of human sexuality and it's role in psychology/society) especially important is the fact that this particular volume covers both genders--something no other offering in this field can boast.

i readily give "Skin Flutes & Velvet Glove" a 5+ star rating because it supplies a substantial and impressive amount of information in a well-written and amusing fashion. i hope dr. hamilton will continue to impart her unique, intelligent 'voice' upon those of us who find her works so delightful. how nice to read something that is just...so nicely written, so full of wonderful information, and so capable of giving us more than a few laughs along the way!! BRAVO!

5-0 out of 5 stars Skin Flutes and Velvet Gloves
In spite of its price (new hardcover), this book was well worth it. I'm currently reading it for the second time. I own many books on genitalia, and this is by far the best. I liked the mix of facts and fun. It's an historical treasure for anyone wanting to research the topic. The "Dicktionary" and the bibliography are particularly useful. Dr. Hamilton is to be commended for this very useful (and entertaining) book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask!
This book is hilarious! Dr. Hamilton is as humorous as she is serious and factual in presenting the sometimes awkward subject of sex and genitals. This is not material covered in Med. School for sure. I learned more from this book than I've ever learned from any medical text, "street knowledge" or "sex ed." Dr. Hamilton has written a fun, humorous, fact-filled book about almost anything and everything one has ever wondered about the organs between our legs. Because of her use of the coloquial and straight-forward, no nonsense talk approach of the subject matter...I wouldn't recommend this as a "sex ed." book for teens as much as I would recommend that every parent own a copy of this book to be better educated on the subject matter. This book is written with wit, humor and facts in a very comfortable format...While the title may be vulgar to some...the book is anything but. I enjoyed this read with a smile and occassional belly laugh, mainly because Dr. Hamilton presented answers or facts to questions I thought were too warped to ever contemplate finding an answer to. I highly recommend this book for anyone remotely curious about their private parts (or other's for that matter!).

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun, Fresh, Fascinating!
I first learned about Skin Flutes & Velvet Gloves from my girlfriend...literally! We were at a dinner party and someone mentioned some obscure acronym for male genitalia and the next thing I knew, my sweetie launched into a litany of one liners about "spare legs, squirmin' Hermans, big Macs, baloney ponys, trouser trouts, skin flutes..." and so on. We were hysterical if not a bit 'shocked' (especially after she treated us to an equally impressive list of nicknames for female genitals).

The list of names along with the interesting history of genital nicknaming certainly makes for great conversation fodder -- but Skin Flutes & Velvet Gloves takes the reader far beyond this superficial falderal by delving into such topics as the connection between modern-day religion and ancient genital worship; the history of circumcision (more disturbing than one might imagine); odd (really odd!) things folks do to their own 'flutes' and 'gloves'; just to name a few. Dr. Hamilton also provides clear and fascinating info about genitals in general (nice chapters on male/female anatomy - the section on "the black rose" was mind boggling!)

Engaging yet easy read, memorable/unusual factoids, highly entertaining... highly recommended!!! ... Read more

Forget the joking stereotypes--PMS is serious business that can greatly benefit from serious treatment. Taking Back the Month is a detailed health-care guide that helps you carefully track symptoms; by following the recommendations and questionnaires, you'll discover exactly which of your aches, pains, and mood swings are attributable to PMS and which might require additional diagnostic aid. Sure, you may be irritable on some days, but are you sure those days consistently fall within the PMS time frame?

Lengthy chapters focus on treating your symptoms with simple, natural solutions. Adding protein and exercise, avoiding sugar binges and alcohol, and training yourself with relaxation techniques can bring impressive results with far fewer negative side effects than prescription medications. Still, authors Diana Taylor and Stacey Colino do thoroughly address using antidepressants, herbs, and nutritional supplements, while cautioning readers that some remedies are still being researched or require a consultation with a physician. A detailed chapter titled "Putting the Pieces Together" helps you simply use what you've learned to design the best possible program that will make your Dr. Jekyll/Ms. Hyde transformation a thing of the past. --Jill Lightner ...

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent resource for women, clinicians, and educators
Taylor and Colino have written an excellent research-based guide to managing PMS. I have used the examples and guides found in the book to teach women in the clinical setting, and I have used it to teach nurse practitioner students about options for PMS management. I particularly like the straight forward suggestions that target healthy lifestyle choices. Women who follow the diet, exercise, and stress management guidelines that effectively manage symptoms of PMS have the added benefit of knowing they are contributing to their overall health. Thank you for this wonderful contribution to women's health.

5-0 out of 5 stars Every woman should read this book!
I am a menopausal mother with a pubescent daughter. Both of us are free of hormonal troubles, thanks largely to the advice of this terrific book. It is so full of facts and figures, from both regular and alternative medicine. It covers every possible scenario. I can't imagine anyone that couldn't find a solution for their specific needs. This book is easy to use because each chapter relates to your specific interest, or you can read it cover to cover, which I suggest, since it has great advice on living a successful, healthful, stress free life. I particularly like how, at the end of a chapter, you're given ways to assess your condition and "to do" lists that help solve specific problems. It's written in an easy to understand conversational style. I've given it to both my sisters and many of my friends.
