From the time I bought `Can I Just Ask' yesterday I was hooked. It made my train journey home in the evening fly by! I think it's a fantastic read and deserves all five stars. I would describe it with three words - fascinating, helpful and entertaining. Not only does it have the answers to many questions that could be embarrassing for you to ask your G.P, it's also packed with many fascinating facts about the human body as well as conditions and syndromes. Some of which I've never heard of before! It discusses some long standing myths which were interesting too.

The book is divided into several sections such as questions relating to skin, hair and nails, travel and general health. It also has two chapters discussing men and women's health separately (and many other chapters not listed here!). It's a good book to read all the way through in one go or dip into when you like.

For me personally, it's answered several questions that I've been intrigued to know the answers to for several years! Additionally, I've gained some health advice which has been taken on board and I'm happy to know the answer to.

I do like the style of this book. Although it does include medical terms and physiology, they are well explained and understandable while still being interesting and easily read (unlike some medical texts I've come across in the past!). It's also written with an engaging entertaining style, and you can sense the authors reassuring chair side manner throughout.

Although, not all of the chapters are directly relevant to everyone all the time, I was interested to read on regardless. Defiantly learnt some facts I didn't know before! Since it covers allot of different areas, I think it has an appeal to many age groups and those in different situations (e.g. pregnancy and looking after children or travelling).

Seeing that the author gives good advice on how to manage the health issues discussed, I think it's a good reference book to keep handy at home to grab when you need to look for an answer. It's defiantly going to be at the front of my bookshelf for the foreseeable future. Plus, it's going to help my doctor friends too - by cutting down the time they spend kindly answering loads of medical questions for me ;o). I do hope there is going to be a second `Can I Just Ask' book or even a series Dr. Jessen!

Really enjoyed this book as and found it to be both compelling and interesting. I like Dr Jessens straightforward approach and found the book easy to read. It also debunked some old wives tales and superstitions and has provided me with a good catalogue of interesting facts to spout at people when I so feel the need :-) my only gripe (hence four stars, not five) was the price. I'm not sure paying that much for an e book can ever really be justified, but I am still glad I read it. Well done Dr Jessen, sequel please - just cheaper next time!

Very boring layout, could have just as easily googled for the mundane answers given. Don't waste your money, mine is going straight to the charity shop

For self confessed hypercondriacs like myself, this book is brilliant. Informative and fun, and very interesting, it answered many questions I had. I certainly would recommend.

An easy read and entertains enough, but nothing new learned. Could have had a bit more humor and relating to true stories.

I'm not really into factual books but I can't seem to put this one down! It's written well and easy to understand.
