Coming June 2018: Clever, Entertaining Guide to Male Wellness, from a Men’s Health Specialist
Vancouver, BC – Greystone Books is excited to announce it has acquired Happy Down Below, an informative, accessible, and funny guide to male anatomy and wellness by men’s health specialist Dr. Oliver Gralla.
As many of us know, men are notoriously reluctant to see a doctor. Indeed, only three in five men report going for an annual physical, and just over forty percent only ever visit the clinic when their symptoms become unbearable. Many know little or nothing about their bodies, with dire consequences for their wellbeing.
In Happy Down Below, Dr. Gralla provides a clever and highly entertaining remedy to that situation. Packed with colorful anecdotes and quirky illustrations, this cheeky guidebook offers practical tips and clear, accessible explanations for helping men (and women) better understand the male body, learn to care for it, and become more comfortable speaking about it with their doctors when things go wrong. With plenty of relatable metaphors, and a light, conversational tone, Dr. Gralla provides simple, research-based answers to questions such as: Do male enhancement pills actually work? Why does erectile dysfunction happen, and how is it treated? What is a “normal” penis—and how big is it really? And much, much more.
Greystone will publish the book in June 2018, just in time for Men’s Health Month.
