If you’re going to be the only woman on a blog full of men, you may as well pack a powerful, initial estrogen punch so that the 51 posts to follow seem more pleasant in comparison. Ron, you were very gracious to set up an account for me. I hope you aren’t already regretting it!
Now, onto “Taking Charge.” It’s not surprising that Toni Weschler’s book is a national bestseller, as she writes intelligently and light-heartedly about issues that women are sometimes hesitant to discuss. The information packed into this 400+ page book is indispensable for women from puberty to menopause, though the majority of the material is geared toward married women. Toni lays bare in accessible language much of what is glossed over or completely overlooked in health education courses offered at public schools. I highly recommend this book to any women who is seeking to understand her body better as to aid family planning or who is looking for a natural method of birth control. The Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) Toni presents teaches women how to track their bodies natural processes and to chart them daily. Included in the hefty appendix are easy-to-copy charts that are specifically tailored based on your goals for using FAM.
