Mind over Bladder is a tour de force which will benefit all women. As half of all women are affected by incontinence during their lifetime, education about diagnosis and therapy for all is invaluable. The book’s authors are a dynamic team of an internationally known authority on pelvic floor disorders and medical education (Jill Rabin); an accomplished author who has successfully navigated diagnosis and therapy as a patient (Gail Stein), and a skilled and sensitive physician and surgeon (Danielle O’Shaughnessy). This trio provides state-of-the-art information in an easy-to-understand format that will greatly enhance understanding of the causes of incontinence and the various options for treatment. Following the adage that ‘knowledge is power’, readers will come away after reading this book greatly empowered! I strongly recommend this book to all, as it will enhance quality of life for women and their partners throughout the world.
