First, the good news is that, according to my recent email, my book HORMONES WITHOUT FEAR can still be ordered
from Madison-Bajamar, 800-255-8025. You may have to be patient with a new employee who doesn’t have all the information yet. Be assured that the book is
available. If you have any trouble ordering, ask to speak with a senior employee. The price is still the same: $19.95 including shipping. To those of
you who have inquired about my book on male NHRT: if you are still interested, please contact me via email.

Finally, I have been asked to provide an index to CyberHealth. While I would love to provide an alphabetical
index, it’s too time-consuming to prepare without special software. I hope that simply listing the contents of CyberHealth issues up to now will be helpful to
those of you who’d like to order back issues. Don’t be shy—you’re welcome to order as many as you like.

[Electronic note: the index has now being upgraded to include all issues. It has been a distinct pleasure reading, re-reading and lightly editing all issues for the Archived version. I consider this a highly
valuable resource of immense relevance, interest and humor. — Philip Lee Miller, MD archives editor]
