Title: Breast Cancer Survival Manual: A Step-by-Step Guide for the Woman with Newly Diagnosed Breast Cancer
Author: John Link
Publisher: Henry Holt & Company
Date Published: February 2007
Synopsis Written by one of the country's foremost breast cancer experts, this guide provides the most up-to-date information available on the disease and its treatment. 10 line drawings.
Expert Commentary From Library Journal: Upon hearing a diagnosis of breast cancer, many women feel devastated, confused, and totally alone. Link, a practicing internist and oncologist and founder/medical director of the Breast Center in Long Beach, CA, intends to provide the newly diagnosed woman with all the information she needs to make informed decisions about her care. After arguing that a second opinion is absolutely required, he goes on to discuss the types of cancer, surgeries, reconstruction, and adjuvant therapies, all the while stressing that the best prognosis involves the creation of a surgical/oncological team of specialists whom the informed patient is advised to quarterback. Link also provides chapters on post-treatment health and nutrition. The most useful parts of the book are checklists at the end of each chapter that provide specific questions to be asked of physicians at each step of the process and the suggestion to keep a log/calendar of all appointments and record sessions with doctors. Link presents breast cancer patients with valuable information and hope, two vital parts of a successful treatment/recovery process. Recommended for all public libraries.Bette-Lee Fox, "Library Journal"

Date Published: January 1977
Breasts: Our Most Public Private Parts
Author: Meema Spadola
Pub. Date: # October 1998
Synopsis Based on the author's controversial documentary that aired on Cinemax, this book breaks taboos, shatters myths, and pays homage to the female breast. In a narrative that is uncompromising and authentic, Spadola explores previously uncharted emotional and sociological territory. Photos throughout.
Reviews and Commentary From The Publisher:
Meema Spadola would like to talk to you about breasts. Not "Hollywood breasts" -- the perfectly shaped, sized, and proportioned breasts frequently displayed in magazines, on TV shows, and in movies. Real breasts. Everyday breasts.
Based on the author's controversial documentary, Breasts features a group of 20 women -- some from the documentary along with a chorus of new voices. Interviewees are a diverse mix of women of all ages, sexual orientations, and social, racial, and ethnic backgrounds. In addition, observations from selected experts -- psychologists, plastic surgeons, oncologists, lactation consultants -- add greater depth.
Of interest to women of all ages and especially helpful for young girls entering puberty, Breasts is a manifesto by women, for women. In a narrative that is uncompromising and authentic, Spadola explores previously uncharted emotional and sociological territory.

This Book was reviewed by: Publisher's Weekly, Alida Brill - Ms., Esther R. Rome - Women's Review of Books, The Readers Catalog and The Publisher
From Publisher's Weekly: This fifth edition of Love and Lindsey's comprehensive 1990 title has been so thoroughly revised that, Love notes, only the anatomy chapter remains untouched: ``The breast, I'm glad to report, is still located on the chest!'' New information includes that on mammography screening, the breast cancer gene, the metastatic phase of breast cancer, the connection between mind and body, prevention and the importance of political awareness and action. Also updated are discussions of every conceivable aspect of the breast: from its health and development to such common concerns as normal tissue lumpiness and breast feeding, to issues surrounding breast cancer-its screening, diagnosis, causes, treatment, prevention and the directions of current research. Hormone therapy, silicone implants, breast biopsy, lumpectomy, reconstruction and bone-marrow transplants are also explained. With Lindsey (Friends as Family), Love, who is director of the Comprehensive Breast Center, associate professor of clinical surgery at UCLA School of Medicine and co-founder of the National Breast Cancer Coalition, offers a highly readable book that educates, supports and encourages women to become their own advocates of breast health. (June)
From The Reader's Catalog: Fully revised and updated, this is a "highly readable book that educates, supports and encourages women to become their own advocates of breast health"--Publishers Weekly
From The Publisher: Women all over the country and the doctors and nurses who care for them have established Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book as the standard reference on its subject.

Every chapter has been brought up to date, including new information on silicone implants, imaging techniques, genetics, risk factors and prevention, hormone use, bone marrow transplants, tamoxifen, immediate reconstruction, and treatment for metastatic breast cancer.
