"Congratulations to Gabrielle Lichterman for writing a humorous, powerful and very needed book." -- Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Girls and What Could He Be Thinking?

"Lichterman translates serious scientific research into a snappy and practical guide to the daily craziness and elation." -- Nashville City Paper, July 5, 2005

From the Author

Your hormones affect virtually every aspect of your day--your mood, brain skills, relationship, sex, money, career, energy, diet, health and more! Hundreds of scientific studies prove it!

So why haven't you heard about this till now? Because all those hundreds of hormones studies have been scattered in hundreds of different health journals and medical books. Most busy gals simply don't have the time to track them all down.

Luckily, you don't have to spend time looking--I've done it all for you. And I've compiled the results of these hundreds of studies into one convenient daily guide that's as easy to read as a hororscope! In fact, you can consider 28 Days your daily "hormone horoscope". With it, you can instantly find out what practially every aspect of your day will be like--mood, mind, relationship, sex, money, career, energy, diet, health, and more!

28 Days is fun, it's loaded with surprising facts about you, it's a must-read every single day.

Hallelujah! Someone has finally made sense of my hormones!

I never recognized the pattern to my monthly mood swings and energy levels, until I read this book. Sure, I knew that sometimes I would cry about the fact that I had run out of orange juice, and other times I would be likely to reenact a scene from the Exorcist if someone looked at me sideways. I knew that certain days I could zip around at the speed of light, and others I felt like I could barely drag myself out of bed but I never understood when or why.

Now, I can predict and plan for these days, as well as know when I'll be at my peak for presentations, going on vacation, or getting it on! I've also learned how to prevent cramps, when to give in to cravings, and when I'll be most likely to whip out my wallet and spend like it's going out of style. My boyfriend's reading the book now, too, so he knows what to expect and why.

Gabrielle Lichterman tells women what we should have been told ages ago, and she does it with humor and style. Her expert advice, written in a fun way that everyone can understand, makes it feel like you're talking to your best friend. The best thing is that the book addresses all women. On the pill or off it, in a relationship or not, long or short cycles, you need this book!

I already knew that when PMS hits, all I want is my couch, my Ben N Jerry's, and my remote (and sometimes a tazer gun for anyone who gets in my way). I just never knew why, or what to do about it.

This book takes women (and our clueless men) through each day of our 28 day cycle, explaining which hormones are surging, which are retreating, and how that affects everything from confidence level to verbal ability to impulse shopping. It has tips on how to reduce cravings, stop cramps before they happen, and make the most of your sex life (even if, like me, you're in a dating desert). The author modifies her information and advice to include women who are single, in relationships, on birth control pills and off, and she writes with sass and humor, so you feel like you're getting advice from a friend. Now when I'm deciding when I'm going to ask my boss for time off, schedule a reunion with the ex, or have a beach day with the girls, I check this book and see what day I'm on. I'm addicted! Great gift for the cool women in your life. And if you've ever tried to address a serious problem with your guy only to hear him ask "What are you, on your period!?", or try unsuccessfully to explain why he can't squeeze your breasts like ripe melons, especially on THAT WEEK, get him a copy too!

Always Check Your Hormone Horoscope: that is exactly what I do ever since buying and reading this fantastic book by Gabrielle Lichterman. I literally bought it for all my friends! It is so easy to use and overflowing with scientific facts presented in such a fun and sassy way. This is a book to be read, re-read, and most importantly, SHARED: woman to woman, wife to husband, mother to daughter, girlfriend to girlfriend and/or boyfriend. Makes a GREAT bridesmaid gift too. Two great ways to start my day are checking my astrological horoscope and my "hormone horoscope" to get the feel and flavor of the day. 28 Days is an invaluable tool for managing emotion and performance. Highly recommended.

I got so excited by reading this that I had to hop online and tell you about it! I intend to buy this for all my girlfriends who routinely gripe and moan along with me about our reliable, but until now, unpredictable mood swings. "28 Days" is an expertly written book that helps women feel understood and no longer held hostage by the whims of wily hormones. One of the best things about this fun and engaging read is that, not only is it based on science with accompanying references, but it's useful for every day. Like a travel guide to yourself, you'll return again and again to "28 Days."

My girlfriend and I have been reading this book together, and having a lot of fun... we pick it up throughout the month and nine times out of ten it is right on target as far as her moods, etc. Add to this Ms Lichterman's wit and humorous anticdotes, and you have one of the best book purchases we've made in quite a while...

Format: Paperback
Most articles about the menstral cycle focus only the more negative aspects of any associated mood changes - such as irritability, weepiness, bingeing etc...This book covers all of these plus many of positive aspects (such as creativity) that are driven by hormone changes through-out the cycle. Better still it tells you exactly which days of the month you can expect to get that creative urge so that you can plan for & make the most of these days. Of course this book won't work quite as well for you if you don't have a standard 28 day cycle - however just knowing which positive aspects are associated with, say, that rise in progesterone should enable you to chart your own cycle.

I saw Gabrielle Lichterman on a morning TV show talking about her book 28 Days. When she said I could predict my day based on my hormone cycle, I logged onto Amazon and bought a copy right then. It was just so intriguing. And I'm so glad I got this book. I love it so much, I'm now writing my first Amazon review!

If you don't already know, 28 Days bills itself as a daily horoscope that uses your body's own hormones to tell you what your day will be like. This is amazing! I used to be surprised when I'd wake up one day and be in a good mood or I'd wake up and be down or mad. Now there are no surprises. I know exactly what days I'll be up, down and somewhere in between. It's so cool!

But that's not all. Acording to 28 Days my hormones influence how I spend money, what guys I like and what my work day will be like (as if it's ever good anyway, but that's another story), what my relationship will be like and so on.

The most amazing part is how right on this book is. I've read it and re-read it (it's really funny, so it's an easy re-read), and I'm really surprised at how accurate this stuff is. (Why didn't I learn this stuff back in health class? I wish I'd known this stuff when I got my first period!)

I highly recommend this book to all women who have a menstrual cycle. It's accurate, it's a riot to read, and you'll be suprised by how much your hormones affect you every day!
