Each year, almost two million boys are routinely (non-therapeutically) circumcised after birth — even though there is rarely a sound medical reason to do so! The foreskin is more than just a piece of skin: It's a very important, specialized, and unique part of the male body. Now a leading pediatrician exposes the myths and misconceptions of America's most commonly performed surgery, including little-known religious support for not circumcising, in this balanced, comprehensive, and compassionate guide that will change your mind about everything you thought you knew about this procedure.
