CHOICE Review

This extensive compilation of writings focusing on women's cancer is part of Praeger's "Women's Psychology" series. Paludi (Human Resources Management Solutions; Union Graduate College) includes scientific explanations of all types of women's cancers and the various treatment options. As the title suggests, significant emphasis is placed on the related psychological issues, such as coping, decision making, suffering, sexuality, and stress. An additional focus on the impact of the diagnosis on family and friends as supporters and caregivers of the female patient generates a number of pieces exploring aspects of cancer from many perspectives. Using personal narratives and professional research, the four-part handbook provides an array of information and insight into the experiences of women who have navigated the health care system and the relational challenges that interplay as they confront the diagnosis of cancer. Significant references and resources are included in the bibliographies and six appendixes, respectively. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; general readers. --Mary P. Tarbox, Mount Mercy University
