Brilliant, Engaging- A Major Contribution to the Literature

Dr. Emily Senay and Rob Waters have made a signficant contribution to the growing field of personal health care literature that demonstrates both the need for personal responsibility and the pursuit of knowledge for health-related decision making. Traditional family roles have been changing for quite some time and this book gives "a wake up call" to friends, partners and family members about the importance of understanding and coping with health issues that have both short- and long-term consequences for all involved. The balance of available medical research and personal story is what makes this book different and special. The information is comprehensive,accessible and readable. The writing is well-researched, engaging and interesting. The resources are invaluable. It's a book that will sit prominently on my reference shelf.Kudos for a timely and informative health resource!

my wife bought it; i read it

This might be the best medical book any family with boys could own. As a man, I've always ignored my medical problems, often waiting until a tiny medical condition reached a crisis point before addressing the problem. After my wife brought this book home, I picked it up and started reading. It is story driven and anecdotal, which made reading about potentially frightening medical conditions a lot easier. It was also examined the male fear of going to the docotor's office and has given me new insight into why it is important for me to change my habits so my son won't inherit them as well. It is comprehensive, but accessible. Thanks! Dr. Senay.

So glad I read this book!

The role of wife and mother just got easier! Dr. Senay hits all of the topics and then some. This book is smart, easy to read and easy to incorporate into daily life. Dr. Senay de-mystifies any number of subjects critical to the way I need to think about being a better mother and wife - that ought to give me more time to concentrate on my own career and needs in the long run. My husband found it most helpful in thinking about our sons. Thank You Dr. Senay!

An informative guide

From Boys to Men is well written and very informative. Any criticism that the book denegrates women by "reducing" them to a caretaker role is preposterous. In fact, by providing a useful and accessible guide to the basics of men's health, Dr. Senay has made a valuable contribution to women, men and their families. I highly recommend the book.

Deeper understanding of myself and my sons

My wife left this book on my desk for me to read. It was more informative and helpful than I could have imagined and educated me on how to be a better father, not only in caring for my three sons but also for myself.I was especially drawn to the emotional development of boys that gave me a deeper understanding of what my sons are going through as they develop into young men. Now I feel more confident in my parenting decisions.
