5-0 out of 5 stars comprehensive and accessable
I recently bought Fast Facts-Sexually Transmitted Diseases-inadequate ,not even suitable for an undergrad,but the book under review is a horse by another colour,its all here for the non-specialist, particularly helpful is its advice and algorithms for patients whose symptoms persist in spite of repeated clear tests,the only minor complaint was that it did not address the poorly named male pelvic congestion syndrome in its discussion of ongoing symptomatology where a clear cut cause is being elusive, however maybe that is one for the urologists rather than venereologists.An invaluable primary care reference. ...

Sexually Transmitted Diseases are everyone's concern. In the United States, more than 12 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) occur each year.Of the top 10 reportable diseases in the United States in 1995, five are STDs (chlamydial infection, gonorrhea, AIDS, primary and secondary syphilis, and hepatitis B virus infection).At least 3 million of of each year's new cases are among teenagers. Approximately two-thirds of people who acquire STDs in the United States are younger than 25.Each year in the United States, approximately $17 billion is spent on major STDs including sexually-transmitted human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).This book gives information primarily from official government medical sources on the most common STDs extant in the United States, including description of symptoms, pictures, what to do to reduce risk of exposure, and what to do if you think you might have been exposed.There is also a CD of instructor resources, with prepackaged presentations and more color clinical photos, as ISBN13 9781596300255. ...

I read this wonderful book today and find it simple,easy to read,color illustrations are there with the text.I have read this book during my Genitourinary Examination and found it very useful,this is the main reason that I bought this book.I recommend this book to all the doctors related to genitourinary medicine,dermatologists and venereologist.It is also useful for the G.P's and medical students so that they can get a basic idea about the sexually transmitted diseases and their presentations.At the end I would like to congratulate Dr.H.Hunter Handsfieldon writing such a wonderful book.

I believe this was a great book, it provided a lot of needed information on stds, the contraction of certain disease, etc. It was almost like a reference guide to me. It made me feel much better after i had gained all the needed knowledge. STD'Sare one of those "quiet diseases", that nobody really talks about...However,you have to get your information from somewhere, right?....So why not get it from a reliable source with a huge layout of information.(even pictures)So, all in all i rate this book a 5, i doubt it could throughly describe std's any better then it did. ...

Product Description
How do women living with genital herpes and/or HPV (human papillomavirus) infections see themselves as sexual beings, and what choices do they make about sexual health issues? Adina Nack, a medical sociologist who specializes in sexual health and social psychology, conducted in-depth interviews with 43 women about their identities and sexuality with regard to chronic illness. The result is a fascinating book about an issue that affects millions around the world, but is all too little discussed. "Damaged Goods?" adds to our knowledge of how women are affected by living with chronic STDs and reveals the stages of their sexual self-transformation. From the anxiety of being diagnosed with an STD to issues of blame and shame, Nack - herself diagnosed with a cervical HPV infection - shows why these women, feeling that they are "damaged goods," question future relationships, marriage, and their ability to have healthy children. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars highly recommend
In Damaged Goods ?, Dr. Nack combines the tools of a rigorous social scientist with the voice of an empathetic advocate to convey the experiences of women living with chronic STD's.
She provides readers with a medical, historical and political background to understand HPV and the way in which HPV vaccination campaigns have been constructed. Nack argues that STD's are strongly stigmatizing to women and that the focus of HPV campaigns has been on presenting the vaccine as a way of preventing cervical cancer instead of portraying the vaccine as an immunization against sexually transmitted disease. She critically questions the consequences of this portrayal and gives policy and research suggestions to improve national public health treatments of this disease.

What makes Damaged Goods ? unique is that it seamlessly accomplishes a multitude of tasks: While providing statistical data, historical, political and medical facts, it focuses on the personal experiences of women living with chronic STD's. In this way, Nack bridges a gap that is often found between an empirical, academic undertaking and the accessibility of empirical research to women who seek to understand their diagnosis and their daily experiences with their disease.
A further strength of this book is that Nack uses her empirical findings and criticism in a constructive way: She gives specific policy and research recommendations for improvements to sexual health education, doctor-patient communication and interaction style. Finally, she questions the HPV-vaccine campaign for presenting itself as a cervical cancer vaccine and disassociating itself with STD stigma. Although some families might be more willing to encourage their daughters to get vaccinated when the term 'sexually transmitted disease' is not mentioned, are national health campaigns avoiding the realities of STD's and the sexual behavior of young women? Are they leading Americans to believe that HPV causes all cervical cancers? These are questions that Nack discusses, thereby initiating an important dialogue about the national understanding of HPV and personal encounters of this prevalent, stigmatizing and all-too-little-talked about disease.

5-0 out of 5 stars Insightful and honest
This book is no doubt an open account of attitudes held socially and internally by the women who live with incurable STD's. Nack has created an outlet for frustration, fear, anxiety, and a floodgate of emotions held by these women and also serves as support to others that may seek solace from shared experiences. Not only is this book helpful to those women and men who need allies in the struggle to regain their sexuality, but also to those loved ones who may need help to understand what social stigma is, and how to support appropriately. I encourage women and men who live with these conditions to read all the material they can both research and honest accounts that Nack has brought here. This is ethnography at its best.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not a good resource!
When I found out that I had an STD this was the first book I read. I would never recomend this book to someboy who is trying to figure out how to deal with the diagnosis of an STD and become comfortable and confidant again. I found the book very negative. It was hard to get through because I was already extremely emotional. I don't know what I was expecting from a book with this title, but what I got did not make me feel any better about my diagnosis. I would skip this book and stick to more factual books about specific diseases, and healing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Insightful Book!
After reading this book for a class, I was amazed at how insightful and helpful this book is to not only someone living with HPV or HSV, but also to all of those people who they encounter and are possibly affected by it (significant others, doctors, parents, friends, etc.). Adina Nack nails every single feeling and account of women going through this painful experience, and brings it into the light of sympathy, not judgement. The stigma that goes along with this situation is wrong, hurtful and unfair. Nack's efforts to de-stigmatize this problem are impressive and encouraging and her words really have something for everyone to benefit from. The jokes need to stop. The ignorant comments need to stop. The stigma needs to stop. This book is definitely amazing and should be experienced by everyone because everyone is affected in one way or another.

5-0 out of 5 stars Food for the Heart and Mind
Reading a book that balances logos and pathos in such a compelling way is a rare pleasure indeed. Dr. Nack's study on STD's integrates scholarship and heart so seamlessly that the research presents itself with a sense of emotional and social urgency: Help women to empower themselves in the face of personal and medical challenges, and remove the stigma associated with STD's by challenging the public's perspectives. Dr. Nack's auto-ethnography regarding her experience with an STD further evidences her deep personal investment in the subject and connects her with the dozens of women who share their stories in interviews. Possessing little knowledge on the subject of STD's, I expected Damaged Goods to be somewhat "over my head." It is indeed expertly-researched and scientifically sound, but without pretense. It is a fresh and revealing read, compelling enough to keep you awake at night turning pages and challenging personal perspectives. ... Read more

As a Public Health professional, I have read many books about sexually transmitted diseases over the years. I recommend this one (the second edition)for professionals and interested laypersons. I believe it has the most complete and up to date information.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sexually Transmitted Disease by Marr
This book explains the male and female anatomy with particular
emphasis on the causes and prevention of classic sexually
transmitted diseases and disease processes. The author
discusses herpes, lice, warts, yeast infections, testicle
bacteria, gonorrhea, prostrate infections, urinary tract
infections and a whole host of infectious diseases. There is
an exhaustive discussion of safe sex which includes:
o monogamy
o abstinence
o testing and checkups
o avoidance of risk behaviors
o outercourse
o chlamydia bacteria and special tests PCR, LCR

This book is valuable for anyone travelling overseas with an
expectation of engaging multiple sex partners. The author
explains the major disease processes, prevention strategies,
testing, diagnosis and modern treatment modalities. The book is
worth the price if you have questions about sexual contact and
the risks/precautions involved.

4-0 out of 5 stars If use is any indication...
I am a consumer health librarian, and I keep a pretty close eye on my book collection to see what is being used.Although this book has never checked out in the 10 months we've had it, several times a week it moves around: it gets misshelved, set on top of the bookcase, taken into our waiting or reading area, left on a chair, etc.What this says to me is that there is a real demand for this information, but people are not inclined to check the book out and take it home (who wants to be spotted on the bus carrying a book on STDs?).So, people are sneaking a peek at the information when they can.

Besides being heavily used, this is a fine book that covers the full gamut of STDs, including many that I had not heard of (and I'm pretty savvy about medical terms and disease names), and helpful sections on genital anatomy, "What is 'safe sex'?", a symptom key, what to expect in an examination, and a section on how open communication can help save your life and health in a sexual situation.I wouldn't call the writing style fascinating, but it gets the information across in spades, and does not talk down or confuse.The book also has the full complement of appendices: resource list, glossary, bibliography (largely clinical medical articles), and an excellent index.This is a seriously good consumer health book, and I wish they were all like this, regardless of topic.

p.s.--When I went to get the book in the library stacks just now, it was misshelved again.;)

4-0 out of 5 stars The Hard Truth
I read the book for a research paper for one of my biology classes and was very impressed with it. The writer successfully explained in layman's terms the harsh truth about STDs. I recommend it to all. Everyone needs to be aware of the world we live in and we need to know the price we can pay for the decisions we make. I live in Miami, where the sex scene is everywhere: music, the club scene, movies, the media. You need to know before the bombardment of sexhits you, so that when you make your decisions, or mistakes, you are prepared.

Product Description

Before AIDS, the role of behavioral interventions in preventing transmission of sexually transmitted diseases was acknowledged in text books and journals but rarely promoted effectively in public health practice. Informed by a comprehensive knowledge of behavioral theory, intervention methods, and affected populations, the authors of this important book examine the central role of behavioral interventions in combating STDs. The book addresses the complexities and social contexts of human behaviors which spread STDs, the cultural barriers to STD education (ranging from conservative mores to “stay out of my bedroom” libertarianism), and the sociopolitical nuances surrounding treatment. Over forty contributors offer a practical appraisal of what is being done now and what can be improved, such as: an overview of current behavioral and biomedical interventions for STD prevention and control, a discussion of what works for individuals, groups, and communities, up to date thinking about such traditional prevention approaches as partner notification and health care seeking, STD prevention strategies with high-risk populations, including drug users, gay men, teenagers, incarcerated persons, and persons with repeat infections, the state of prevention technology: condoms, vaccines, the Internet, ethical, economic, and policy issues in STD prevention, applying intervention models to real-world situations, guidelines for program evaluation and improvement.

As STDs and AIDS remain top priorities for public health and private sector practitioners, researchers, and educators, “Behavioral Interventions for Prevention and Control of Sexually Transmitted Diseases” gives a long-neglected field the attention it deserves. This authoritative resource is sure to influence public health practice and policy in an ever-evolving social climate.

Product Description
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are among the most common infectious diseases in the United States today. More than 20 STDs have been identified, and they affect more than 13 million men and women in the United States each year. Nearly two-thirds of all STDs occur in people younger than 25 years of age.
