I'm reading a book called "The PCOS Diet plan" it's very informative. It explains everything. So far I'm very happy with my purchase. You can read a sample online at the barnes and noble website. Hope it helps.

I've not really found any specific PCOS book helpful most of them target interfility or taking charge of your fertility and other junk (junk to me because I've chosen not to be a parent) thus 99% of the books it seem's are of no help in general since its all aimed at being able to get preggers with little content aimed at those who are actually infertile and no amount of treatments will cure that thus you are glossed over and made to feel even worse about a medical condition (even doc's have that effect, if you can't get preg or don't wont to you are not worth their time in treating for the condition).
Though I do admit to a degree that the PCOS diet book has some good info (but SP gives same info so no real change there) there is also the medical guide to PCOS that I found the most useful, but its aimed at the doc's who treat endrocrom issues and costs abotu 200 bucks for the book (got it from from lib) best book ever but ouch the cost and the weight of the thing it covers everything from reproduction, to diabetes, to thyriod issues and the list goes on but well worth going though if you understand medical terms.
I am waiting for my copy of The Ultimate PCOS Handbook to come in, and I can't wait to dig into it! From everything I have seen it seems to be a helpful resource. I have come across several other books that look good. So what books have been most helpful to you? What was the most helpful thing you learned and have implemented?
