"Drs. Rushing and Joste have written a valuable book designed to empower women by providing much needed knowledge about cervical screening and diagnosis through the use of the Pap smear test, that serves as a tool for women to ask the right questions, gain a better understanding of their physician's recommendations, and work with their gynecologists to make the right decisions for their particular situations. This book is an excellent resource for patients and their families."

"Abnormal Pap Smears: What Every Woman Needs to Know serves as a primer on Pap smears: how the test is taken, what the different diagnoses of abnormal cells mean, what kind of follow-up care you should expect, and explains the role of the human papillomavirus (HPV) as a cause of cellular changes that can lead to cervical cancer."

"Abnormal Pap Smears: What Every Woman Needs to Know fills a void in women's consumer health literature. Recommended for public and other libraries with consumer health collections."

"Pap smears detect cervical cancer but there's a major difference between different types of abnormal pap smears, from full-blown cancers to results which are atypical yet benign. Abnormal Pap Smears: What Every Woman Needs to Know not only helps consumers understand the differences; it also suggests lifestyle changes to reduce the risks of precancers and cancers."
