Title: For Women Only

Author: London Tracy

Publisher: New Hope Books

Genre: Self-Help, Health, Homeopathic

Length: 85 pages

I have to admit when I first saw the cover, a bit of dread came over me.  A self-help title on depression.  Give me memoirs about manic depressive women and I’m riveted, self-help, not so much.  But it was 80-some-odd pages, no biggie, easy cheesy.  I was tempted to procrastinate, the author didn’t expect me to post a review immediately after all, just within 3 weeks as per my Review Policy.  I am SO GLAD I didn’t put this book off!

For Women Only: A Novel Approach to Depression in Women is short, sweet, wonderfully concise and to the point.  London Tracy tells you what you need to know and who to talk to to get more information.  Having had bouts of depression and fatigue myself, I appreciated that Tracy wrote this book specifically for the person suffering from the problems being addressed.  While suffering from depression, one isn’t very likely to commit themselves to a lengthy and overly wordy explanation of how to deal with their issues.  They want an answer.  They want that answer now.  A listless person can only handle reading chapters a page and a half long in an 85 page book.  Tracy’s work is perfect.

Even if you don’t think you suffer from depression, this report is worth 30-45 minutes of your time.  It is very informative and may prepare you for issues you might not otherwise know might be coming up in your future.  I called my sister twice to share factoids and lists with her that I came across while reading, just little things that every woman should be made aware.

This is a quick women’s health guide for ladies from their 20’s on through menopause.  When I open a Kung Fu studio (hopefully, one day, in my perfect dream world) there will be a member’s library, where resources and reference material both on health and martial arts will be available for students to browse.  I plan to keep this book in that library.  It could help someone in a major way one day.
