Glance to the left of this post and you will see what I am oh-so-proudly promoting! 'Tis my book, due to be published in July 2013.
I would like to recommend it to my professorial colleagues for teaching undergraduate students in anthropology, medical anthropology, anthropology of reproduction, and related fields of study, including pre-professional programs in nursing.
Ask your college or university library to purchase a copy so that you can take a look!
However, as a former newspaper reporter, what I really hope is that interested readers outside of academia will find it b/c I wrote it with them in mind also.
Suggest it to your book group! Then invite me to come and chat about it. Depending on where and when - I live in Oneonta, NY - I will be delighted to visit. P.S. I will bring cookies, too :)
