Christiane Northrup writes so well and covers so many issues for women at the time of menopause - physically, mentally and emotionally. All women should read this book by the age of 40, so they can start taking the supplements they need to support their body as the changes start but also to help them think about what they want to do with the rest of their lives. Positive book with so much useful information. A must have.

Every woman should have this on their shelf. I keep in by my bed and dip in and out regularly, even though medically qualified myself, her common sense approach as well as spirituality is very appealing to me. Bursting with information on all things menopause. Love it.

I was a bit worried that this would be too 'new-age' for someone with very real menopausal prolems, but Dr Northrup is a great mix of doctor, mystic and writer. I have found it surprisingly helpful, and often return to bits that I need to think through again.

Fantastic book that answers all the questions about the menopause. A must read particularly if you are worried about what is happening to your body. I would highly recommend as it really puts your mind at rest.

I found this book too heavy and cumbersome at around 800 pages plus. I actually found it difficult to hold whilst reading it. The bibliography/
reference pages alone were nearly 100 pages.

It is an intelligent book, but its also rather medical, irrelevant to me as most of I understood much of this already. Though there was not that much on actual menopause symptoms strangely enough. I looked everywhere for something detailed on "headaches" and nothing!

It is written by a doctor, so perhaps no surprise on the medical emphasis but a lot of this e.g. hormone therapy and supplements, seemed more directed to the American market.

The problem for me was that though there were some interesting parts on the life change elements of menopause, this made up a smaller part of the book than the book's title "Wisdom of Menopause" would suggest. For a broader outlook, I would recommend Germaine Greer's "The Change".

This book is very informative, but not laid out in as easy a format as The Menopause Book. I bought both, and would refer to both.

A well written book with loads of information which I can relate to how I'm feeling or what I have gone through. It's amazing to read how or why something has happened to you - it all makes sense now!!

Superb! A book with a true healing power. Helps you to understand and take steps to heal your life on all levels while going through the change. I loved Women's body women's wisdom which thought me so much in my younger years and i love The wisdom of menopause as much! I think this book can help every woman, whether she is interested in purely getting rid of uncomfortable symptoms, or she goes through spiritual and emotional transformation.

A little disappointing. I wanted to find a book I could read and start to get information quickly and easily.
I found the first 60 days unnecessary. The useful information, when you finally get to it, is good. Be prepared to spend a lot of time reading this book. For sure there is no quick fix to understanding the menopause, but it really is an interesting time.
