Doctor’s Orders

A Woman Doctor Looks at Love and Life
Hilliard
1957

This book is awesome. I hadn’t heard of Marion Hilliard, until I was taking a close look at this book. For 1957, this book is amazing. As an obstetrician, she developed the simple PAP test, educated women on sexual health, delivered babies, and advocated for women on a national and international level. This book is a compilation of the many articles she wrote for Chatelaine. Although medical information is always suspect (especially after 60 years), this might have a place in some libraries because of the author.

Submitter: Overall, it really isn’t a bad book. It has good information and covers the facts. However, no school in our area has a school nurse to go to as the book says to do. The biggest issue is the suggested websites to visit for more information. Okay, some are dead links, that happens. But when one suggested web link (outproud.org) opens to their page that discusses finding “hot girls who want to f***” and provides more website links for “teenF***” dating sites to hook up with the hot girls, well then there is an issue with this book. There is nothing wrong with out and proud; just don’t think it’s appropriate for teen health book to direct the teens to what seems to be “sex hook up sites”! American Medical Association printed and approved, but it is no longer on this library’s shelf.
