When one of my patients told me about the book The Sexy Years, by Suzanne Somers, I was suspicious. Hearing about this book from three patients in one day, however, I became curious as to what these professional women were reading. My first reaction was, How can the "Thigh Master Queen" be an expert on hormones? The book's title itself leads one to think that looking good and having sexual appeal were what Ms Somers and my patients were trying to achieve. After purchasing a copy for myself, I read the book and have determined that despite flaws, the book's overall intent may not be superficial--as the main title suggests.
