The Real Life Body Book: A Young Woman's Complete Guide to Health and Wellness (and Hope Riccioti, MD)
When you have questions about your health, you want answers from a trustworthy source. In The Real Life Body Book, a Harvard ob-gyn has joined forces with a humor writer to explain the full range of health issues facing young women today. This comprehensive and authoritative guide focuses on whole body wellness and prevention, from the skin (acne, piercing, tattooing) and the head (mental health, hormones, stress) to the bones, heart, and stomach (diet and digestion), plus sex and reproductive wellness.
Spencer is a contributor to the Boston Globe, whose work has also appeared in the International Herald Tribune and www.nytimes.com. Her third book, a partnership with Hope Ricciotti, MD, is a body reference for young women called The Real Life Body Book: A Young Woman's Complete Guide to Health and Wellness, published by Ten Speed Press.
