Dr Udo Wahn, a gynecologist with the Southern California Permanente Medical Group in San Diego, has written a small, remarkably informative book about--and for--women who may be facing problems, the solution to which might involve gynecologic surgery. This book follows on the heels of his and Dr B Bekkar's successful, earlier book, Your Guy's Guide to Gynecology,1 reviewed in the Summer 2000 issue of The Permanente Journal.2 Dr Wahn's objective with his new book is to provide and explain various options that are available for women who seek understanding and guidance about what they can do when the usual answers or choices have failed to solve the problem. With sensitivity and wit, Dr Wahn speaks directly to women about their innermost worries. His lighthearted manner and clarity of expression should certainly help reduce a woman's fears and enable her to achieve a more realistic perspective.
