Former Texas governor Ann Richards shares her struggle with osteoporosis in an inspirational, eye-opening book that will help other women to triumph over this debilitating disease.

"There was never any doubt in my mind that if I went after osteoporosis, I could control it and lead a healthy life. That's my message to other women: No one can do this for you--you have got to do it for yourself. And you can."

In 1994, after falling and fracturing her hand, Ann Richards went for a bone density test. She was diagnosed with osteopenia, an early stage of osteoporosis. After witnessing both of her grandmothers and her mother fall victim to the disease, Richards was determined to overcome its incapacitating effects. She began a physician-approved regimen of medication and dramatically changed her lifestyle.

In I'm Not Slowing Down, the former Texas governor, known for her saucy straight talk, and Richard U. Levine, M.D., tell women what they need to know to combat this devastating disease.
