Having reached the other side of 'mid forties', I realised there were gaps in my knowledge and understanding of what was coming up. I bought two books, one was useless and depressing, and this one was great. There is so much information in this book and it manages to strike the balance between being accessible and readable, without being patronising or dumbing down the information. It also manages to avoid the 'pamper yourself because this is all the awful stuff coming up' approach of the other book I bought. I firmly believe that forewarned is forearmed - if you need any information on what to expect as you approach menopause, this may well be the book for you.

It is difficult to get answers regarding this stage in life. Nurses are too busy, and I am not sure male doctors understand. This book covers all the aspects that I can think of and makes practical suggestions. I would recommend this to any woman, and even their husbands too.

Format: Paperback
For any person wanting to learn about the menopause, with nearly all the potential physical and mental health possibilities that it encompasses, this is well worth reading. The information is thorough, well-researched, clearly laid out in most places and is accessible without dumbing things down into catchy phrases or propagating the myths that surround entering the menopause.

There are a couple of drawbacks with the book; one, that it is U.S-centric, so the availability of medicines, medical assistance and healthcare checks is likely to have some variance depending on where you live and what healthcare is available (in Appendix 1 there's a list of possible health screening schedules and I've never even heard of some of them, let alone know if my doctor's surgery provide them as standard procedure).

The second thing is that although the authors do stress that not every single woman will experience every permutation of symptoms, the information can still be a little overwhelming. I'd suggest reading The Basics in Chapter One and then selecting further chapters that are relevant to any questions, symptoms or family medical history that are known to apply to the individual reader, rather than try to go through each section and perhaps provoke unnecessary anxiety about what may or may not occur.

Being informed is a good thing and The Menopause Book does that very well for most areas of interest.

This is a good, overall reference book. I like that it is written in a such a way that you can dip in and out of it as and when you have 5 or 10 minutes here and there. It is easy to read and answers not just the common questions but quite a few obscure ones, too.

I would recommend reading it on the younger side of 40 to get a head start in understanding what is yet to come ...
