Recommended for all women with questions about menopause

Dr Miriam Stoppard is a leading expert on women's health, and the author of several outstanding books; 'Menopause' is no exception. This is a very well thought out, clear and informative book: in my opinion, a must for menopausal, and post-menopausal women alike; younger women would also do well to read Dr Stoppard's advice.
The book provides a comprehensive, illustrated guide to all aspects of menopause: from planning for it; how the female body changes; all possible symptoms of menopause; common medical complaints, and the treatment of them; hormone replacement therapy (HRT); health monitoring and self-examination, and even sound advice on sexuality and relationships: an important aspect that cannot be ignored!
As a fitness professional, my main areas of interest are fitness and nutrition; Dr Stoppard covers both of these very well with practical advice on how to improve and maintain fitness, flexibility and posture, and good information on nutrition, healthy cooking and weight management.
I would thoroughly recommend this book for any woman (or her partner!) who has any question about the menopause.
