1000 Tips and Traps for the Worried Well is a book for middle-aged men which attempts to rehabilitate the term “worried well”. Usually used as a term of abuse for hypochondriacs by doctors, Ian Wilson sees the term positively.
All men should take an interest in their health and act early to prevent and deal with symptoms. The book is written in a very clear and readable way. It is not hectoring and does not appear to have a fad or axe to grind.
Essentially it is a review of current medical thinking on common topics of concern. 1000 Tips and Traps for the Worried Well is structured so that it can be read through or used for reference with a good index and an appendix with pointers to useful further sources of information.
There are chapters on everything from allergies through cancer to weight watching. Useful and sensible and definitely recommended.
