"I have seen the book and am impressed. Staying Dry is written in easy-to-understand language, and I am delighted to recommend it to my readers."

"This book takes a straightforward approach to a problem that most people find too embarrassing to discuss even with their doctors. Incontinence is a problem that has many effective treatments. Staying Dry gives people encouragement to explore those treatments and offers hope for a cure. We recommend it for every family who would like to know more about theproblem."

"This client-centered workbook for managing urinary incontinence is a welcome addition to the self-help literature."

"This is a clearly written handbook that patients will find easy to read and to understand. Incontinent patients are in need of a reference book that specifically addresses them. Although the primary audience for this book is the patient, the physician may be interested in seeing how a difficult topic can be made simple."

"An excellent book... If urinary incontinence is a problem for you, this could be the best $12.95 you could spend."
