Great book for someone newly diagnosed with PCOS.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is newly diagnosed with PCOS. However, having been diagnosed years ago, I have extensively researched the topic and found this book to be a generalized overview. I would've loved it earlier on, but felt that at this point I didn't learn much of anything new.
A more in depth explanation of issues to make the book a bit more insightful would have been wonderful.
