Knowing Maryanne well, her work in the Lower Merion community, and her impact on the world stage, I have given this book to friends and family across the country. Sound advice and senstively presented, almost everyone has said they can identify with at least one chapter or anecdote. My healthcare professional friends have brought up the book topics at backyard BBQs and even a wedding reception (!). My senior-age mother now talks about infections with her physician, and the MD actually asks Mom “What does Dr. McGuckin say about this [bacteria]or that [virus]…” My neighbor just came back from an unexpected stint at a Center City major hospital and told me she never thought she would need all the advice provided in the book but after a week at the hospital she said she needed those empowerment tips more than ever. The book gets people talking. A quick and easy read, now, BEFORE you or a family memeber needs to go to the hospital.
This book is a great resource – filled with valuable information everyone should know. Have given the book to relatives in other countries and they agree. Clearly written advive to help you and your family stay healthy and safe.
