Breasts: The Owner's ManualEvery Woman's Guide to Reducing Cancer Risk, Making Treatment Choices, and Optimizing Outcomes

By Kristi Funk, M.D. 

Most women don’t want to hear about breast cancer unless they have it and need to make some decisions, but these days news about breast cancer—the number one killer of women ages twenty to fifty-nine—is everywhere. Hope for a cure abounds. Celebrities have come forward to share their experiences and raise awareness. Chances are you know someone who has had it.
But did you know that you make choices every day that bring you closer to breast cancer—or move you farther away?That in the majority of cases, cancer isn’t up to fate, and there are ways to reduce your risk factors?That many of the things you’ve heard regarding the causes of breast cancer are flat-out false?
There have been few solid guidelines on how to improve your breast health, lower your risk of getting cancer, optimize your outcomes if you’re faced with a diagnosis, and make informed medical choices after treatment. Until now.
“Dr. Funk writes Breasts: The Owner’s Manualjust like she talks: with conviction, passion, and a laser focus on you.”
—DR. MEHMET OZ, Host of The Dr. Oz Show
“Breasts: The Owner’s Manualwill become an indispensable and valued guide for women looking to optimize health and minimize breast illness.”

My Thoughts:
This is my first book and read on the topic of breast cancer. I like the style of the author's writing with lots of information in a hard copy book. This book has a wealth of information and is a great resource for women wanting to understand good health care as it relates to breast health. 
The book is broken into four parts: Breast Health Basics, Reducing Breast Cancer Risk, Learn Your Risk Factors and Control Medical Choices. This is again a great tool and full of information, but the author does a great job with clarification between statistics, tables and visuals throughout this book. I am using this book as a research tool, so I found it to be very helpful. I give this book 4/5 stars. A favorable review was not required for my honest review.
