The Man’s Health Sourcebook By Alfred M. Dashe, M.D., Lowell House, 274 pages, $25
The world is full of advice books on women’s health, but comprehensive resources for men remain scarce. This sourcebook addresses the void. Written by Dr. Alfred M. Dashe, a Tarzana internist and professor of medicine at UCLA, this book offers such practical advice to men as when to see a doctor and what to expect from a doctor’s visit. Chapters follow on bones, muscles, major organs and body systems, skin, hair, sexual health and mental health.
