Taking Our Pulse: The Health of America's Women : Taking Our Pulse is a book about women's health: what it is, why it is the way it is, and what needs to be done to improve it. It differs from many other books about the health of women in being written directly from the author's experience as a woman who is a physician, an educator of future physicians, a medical researcher, and a feminist scholar. The book integrates up-to-date medical research with practical information for use in daily life. It offers a way of looking at health issues affecting women that accentuates their living better rather than just longer. It emphasizes a developmental approach, examining health issues at different stages of the life cycle. And it is written in a lucid, almost conversational, style that makes complex medical conditions and procedures readily intelligible to lay readers.
