I bought another book that gave a thorough explanation about menopause and it's symptoms, but this book did an excellent job of covering the many treatment options available. The alternative treatments were covered in this book better than any other information I have read. In spite of all the menopause treatment web sites, books, & articles I have been reading for 2 years, I was not aware of the effects phytoestrogens have on women who have not had a hysterectomy. This is something more women need to be aware of!

No one book was able to satisfy my research needs, and I ended up writing a two page memo that combined description with prescription in drawing out the best information across all three books (copy posted to OSS.Net Library under Reference). I deeply regret that I did know look into this ten years ago--both men and women need to understand this stuff before they hit 40. A great deal of emotional misunderstanding could be avoiding if *both* men and women absorbed this knowledge early on. Of the three books, this is the middle one in terms of utility and ease of use. The other two books that I recommend are Colette Bouchez, Your Perfectly Pampered Menopause: Health, Beauty, and Lifestyle Advice for the Best Years of Your Life (2005, the most time-consuming to read, but also the most up to date with some real gems of knowledge), and The Menopause Survival Guide: Surviving the Change of Life which is the shortest and also the best starting point.

This book helped explain the mysteries of the process my mother is going through right now and what I will go through in the future. It was helpful knowing that there are alternatives to hormone therapy and also measures I can take to help prepare me for Menopause. The author did a great job of eplaining the important information in terms that I could understand and remember. I like that there was humor placed at important parts to help reiterate the fact that this process isn't the end of the world and won't have to be as bad as some people make it sound.

I've had them (symptoms) all.... Now I know why! Easy to find answers right away. Clearly discusses all the latest research about hormones. I think it's a great book if you're in your thirties forties or fifties.

Format: Paperback
Gosh, I hate the word DUMMIES. The information in this book is basic but is written in a bit of a condescending manner. The delivery is often simplistic, if not silly. (For example, they say my ovaries were dozing and asleep. That's why my period was late some months. Silly.) The Dummies book reminds me of how a mother might explain something to a little kid. (Gee, I hate that word Dummies.) I am sure it is a coincidence that two similar books came out the same month, but of the two, I much prefer The Menopause Survival Guide by Donna Rogers, which I purchased. In that book, the information is delivered like two adult women were sitting around talking about menopause, and one is explaining to the other what is actually going on in their bodies.

The structure of this book is designed to allow readers to jump around and only read sections that interest them. As a result, information is repeated over and over again. The book could be half the length without losing any information. That said, the info is helpful and easy to understand.

I had a lot of questions about menopause and needed answers without all the medical lingo. This book gives you simple answers in English without the medical mumbo jumbo. It not only answered my questions but gave me some good questions I can ask my doctor. I recommend this book to all women going thru perimenopause and I also recommend it to all the men in her life. It will help them understand what their special person is going thru and what to expect.
