Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is a universal fact that men die before women. But the causes of this have long remained unexplored. In this trailblazing book, Dr. Marianne Legato--an expert in gender specific health--examines the reasons behind men's fragility and explains what they need to do to live longer.

A bestselling author and Professor of Medicine at Columbia University, Dr. Legato shows how the forces of culture and biology conspire against male mortality. Drawing on the latest research and narrated through the lives of her patients, she delves into problems that both men and women care about-- from why the male fetus is at greater risk, to why boys have a hard time adjusting to school, to how elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol make men more prone to aggression and why they are more likely to die from cardiac arrest or cancer and even depression.

Why Men Die First offers specific advice on what men can do to live better, including

* how on-one time with young boys reduces anixiety and attention deficit problems

* lifestyle changes that can prevent cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis

* why young men take on high risk endeavors and how to decrease the stress

* how to cope with mid life depression and feelings of emasculation and uselessness

* how testosterone shots can mitigate the unpleasant symptoms of aging

Dr. Legato brings the possibility of both mental and physical wellbeing to men in this compelling and inspiring book. A superstar physician, celebrated annually in New York Magazine's Best Doctors Issue, Dr. Legato is well poised to take on this urgent topic with her unimpeachable authority and natural warmth.

Synopsis:

It is a universal fact that men die before women. But the causes of this have long remained unexplored. Why Men Die First examines the reasons that men are more susceptible to illness and explains what they need to do to live longer. Bestselling author and professor of clinical medicine at Columbia University, Dr. Marianne Legato delves into problems that both men and women care about, including:

* How men's reluctance to speak frankly to their physicians can kill them
 
* The hormonal shift called "andropause," the male menopause, and therapies that alleviate its painful symptoms
 
*Men's biological predisposition to infection and how best to protect against it
 
*The real causes of male depression and how to treat it
 
*The risks inherent to the male heart, and ways to correct coronary disease--even late in life
 
Through her appearances on the Today Show and NBC Nightly News, Legato has launched the conversation about why men die young, and what we all can do to reverse the grim trend.
