Format: Paperback
With the age of fifty looming in her future, the Alice Fried-Wilson had begun to become undone. This laugh out loud book shows how her first support system, built on myths had to be overturned.
Alice's memories of her mom's warning about "The Curse" and "never trusting women, unless they were family," struck a strong chord with me. It surprised me to find out these myths are universal. Alice is African-American and comes from Louisiana, while I am white and come from New England. But, I, too, had been warned of the dire miseries of menopause by my mother. With menopause youth is gone, so is beauty, and yada-da-yada-da-yada. The grey hairs, the rickety bones, the depression, the mood changes, the loss of libido. What's left?
Well tennis for one thing. The hero to our heroine in the book is, of course, the author's husband, who couldn't stand her moping around the house any longer, and said, "Tennis anyone?"
"Are you nuts?" Alice replied. The man was obviously insane, but to pacify him she took tennis lessons, even though she considered herself athletically challenged.
I recommend Menopause, Sisterhood, And Tennis for any woman before, during and after menopause. It's filled with tips from acing hot flashes to lobbing off those extra pounds. Alice Wilson-Fried handily gets through menopause and finds a new support group with the women on her tennis team.

Format: Paperback
Alice WIlson-Fried tackles the private subject of Menopause in a very refreshing manner. How surprising that her husband would rise to the challenge and hand Alice a Tennis racket.
We often forget that support and nurturing exist, but we must make ourselves available to accept that help.
Even if you don't pick up a racket, it is clear that you can find strength and support in a group of other women. All of us go through Menopause and most of us find it to be a very stressful time.
My thanks to the Author for sharing her very private story.

I really, really enjoyed reading Menopause, Sisterhood and Tennis. I mean I really enjoyed it and I'm not your target audience. But I gotta believe a few million women of any age, of all races, creeds, shades, abilities economic levels and then some...when they hear about it, will be able to relate even more than I could (and I was surprised how much of it is general that I can relate to) and tell all their friends to buy their own copy. I know I will enthusiastically recommend it.

Thank you for writing this book. I only wish you had years ago. Perhaps I would not have suffered fear and anxiety in silence. This book is informative, well written and brutally honest. Thanks for sharing your journey about menopause and how being introduced to the sport of tennis made a difference. So much wit and humor. One knows the truth when one hears it. I heard it.
