The Harvard University Press Family Health Guides


Joel Stein has written a comprehensive guide to stroke for patients and their families. It covers all the basics of stroke care, from prevention to returning home from hospital through rehab. Dr. Stein’s book will be a ‘must’ for families and patients living with the after effects of stroke. The writing is clear and easy to understand, and the information-packed text uses patient vignettes skillfully to illustrate very important issues in an engaging and humane manner.—Walter J. Koroshetz, M.D., Vice Chair, Massachusetts General Hospital Neurology Service

Celebrating Pride Month, Part II

To celebrate Pride Month, we are highlighting excerpts from books that explore the lives and experiences of the LGBT+ community. This second excerpt comes from How To Be Gay, a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award, in which David M. Halperin, a pioneer of LGBTQ studies, dares to suggest that gayness is a way of being that gay men must learn from one another to become who they are.
