Book Reviews

“Thank you Dr. Cook for writing a book that not only explains the complexities of endometriosis from the perspective of a long-time expert in the field, but also clearly captures the experience of what it is like to suffer from endometriosis. Women should not have to suffer in isolation and silence. They should demand—and get—correct diagnoses and proper effective treatment, not mistreatment and unnecessary invasive procedures. This book is a most welcome source of hope for women to break open the taboos about discussing endometriosis and get the medical community to recognize their obligation to rethink how this disease is treated.”

—Susan Sarandon, Actress

“Dr Cook – Wonderful job on the book. I’m only halfway through and it fantastic!! It’s just what I’ve been trying to explain to doctors, my family and other women with endo for years. LOVE the surgery figures.… I’m making my list to see how many more copies I need to pepper my part of the world with a little bit more endo knowledge. I just had to tell you how wonderful it is, now I need to try to sleep some even if I haven’t finished yet.”

“I read Dr Cook’s book. It’s an incredible book on what a women puts up with when dealing with pelvic pain and endometriosis. I can not thank Dr Cook enough for placing this book out there for people to read and gain some understanding of this disease. There needs to be more information  so women do not feel like they are going crazy and no one will listen to them. Thank you Dr Cook for helping me when no one else would. The book is an easy read  in layman terms that a husband, or other family member would understand. Dr Cook is my angel.”

Diane Wellmeier Grant, Endometriosis sufferer

Two of my girlfriends recommended your book to me and I am SO thankful they did. Now I know that my suggested treatment is NOT what I need to do…I will still never, ever forget the look on my doctor’s face as she discussed menopause and hysterectomy as if it was routine. I had to double-check and think about my age .. yes, I am 30 and NO, this is NOT typical! I shouldn’t be hearing this from my doctor like it’s standard practice. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
