From Boys to Men

A Woman's Guide to the Health of Husbands, Partners, Sons, Fathers, and Brothers

From Boys to Men

Foreword by: Eli Newberger
THE GROUNDBREAKING GUIDEBOOK ON THE HEALTH OF BOYS AND MEN -- FOR THE WOMEN WHO LOVE THEM
Men are likely to die, on average, nearly six years earlier than women -- and they have higher mortality rates for many of the leading causes of death in America, including heart disease, accidents, suicide, chronic liver disease, and cancer.
The women in their lives -- mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, and daughters -- are traditionally charged with managing their health concerns. From Boys to Men is a unique resource designed to arm women with much-needed information about men's health issues and to help them educate their male loved ones on how to take care of themselves. Filled with Dr. Senay's expert medical advice, personal anecdotes, and a healthy dose of humor, From Boys to Men will resonate with women of every age and stage of life.
