Most Helpful

Great book for someone newly diagnosed with PCOS.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

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.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

A more in depth explanation of issues to make the book a bit more insightful would have been wonderful.
