Reviewed by Charity Tober for Readers' Favorite

Sidelined: How Women Manage and Mismanage Their Health by Susan Salenger is a thought-provoking and informative guide for women. The book goes into how women are the primary force to manage their health and the health of their families, but at the same time, many are mismanaging their personal health. Often women are undermined by health care professionals (usually male doctors) or told that their health concerns are not as urgent as they make them out to be. The book examines numerous scenarios and explains what women are advised about their health, instead of the medical industry taking their condition and concerns seriously. Thankfully, the book also goes into what women can do to take charge of their health and medical issues.

I think Sidelined by Susan Salenger is an important book for women everywhere. Even the men in our lives could benefit from this inside look, with its many great examples, into what women face when discussing their health every time they go to the doctor. The book could also be a wake-up call or the motivation and inspiration that some women need to make sure that they are heard at their next doctor's appointment. Visits to the doctor frequently feel rushed, but women need to be confident enough to ask questions and push for answers when they feel something is not right with their health. Women are often more concerned over the health of their children, going to as many doctors as needed and asking tons of questions until they get answers, but often they don't take that same care with their own health. This book might be just what the doctor ordered to take charge of our health once and for all.
