Submitter: I tend to browse the non-fiction of my local library and always seem to find something interesting. I did the self-checkout but I’m pretty sure when I return it and they are checking it back into the system they will be curious to know who the patron was. I guess that’s one of the perks of the job? I agree it probably has its place in a public library, I just didn’t expect my small town library to have this in their collection. I actually flipped through it […] and there are specific chapters for men and women. The [last] picture was submitted because of the dog-eared page. I’m guessing someone wanted to circle back to that section?
Holly: The only real issue I have with this book is its age. It’s 20 years old. It’s dog-eared, as submitter says, and while some (even most) of the information *may* be accurate twenty years later, anything remotely health-related should at least be looked at regularly after about five years. For example, there’s a section in the second image below about Yohimbe. A quick search of the googles tells me that “Yohimbe products containing man-made yohimbine hydrochloride as an ingredient are not legal to sell as a dietary supplement in the US.” I didn’t double-check the Physician’s Desk Reference as the page below indicates…but patrons won’t either.
