'Endometriosis: a New Zealand guide' is essential reading for women with endometriosis, and for their partners and families. New Zealand's leading endometriosis specialists share their knowledge; and there are inspiring stories from food writer Allyson Gofton, author Maggie Eyre and musician Kirsten Morelle of Goldenhorse, all of whom have lived with endometriosis.
• Endometriosis: a New Zealand guide covers:
• How to take control of your health
• Diagnosis and treatment options
• Pain management techniques
I found this book amazingly informative. Regardless of whether or not you have Endometriosis it provides an interesting and in-depth view into the world of those who do. It is set out in a simple, straightforward manner with a very easy to read format, it gives information to you in 'small bites' making it easier to digest.
Each chapter is scattered with personal stories, quick tips, endo action tasks, and reflections which ask questions and urge you to write them in an endo diary to help you keep track of the disease.
Deborah Bush QSM, CEO New Zealand Endometriosis Foundation wrote "Andrea has written an informative and comprehensive guidebook of endometriosis which includes easy-to-follow self-help tips so that the reader will feel knowledgeable and can actively be involved in disease management."
Whilst Andrea Molloy is a personal coach rather than a scientist I actually feel that gives this book an edge over others. It isn't overly technical, and it's more about helping you while informing you rather than just bare facts. There's some particularly informative myth-busting, and good symptom information to compare your own to.
Oh and don't be put off by the foreword, which is rather dry.
I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about this disease.

And indeed, he's right, he's not a worm. So what is he? And is it a good thing to be? Scott Tulloch has created a hilarious dialogue between an unlikely pair, culminating in a dramatic twist at the end.
