Editorial Reviews

Review

"A fun and informative guide to creating health and happiness at midlife and beyond." --John Gray, PhD, author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus

"Sunny talks down, dirty, and very funny about everything connected to being female and over 45. Enjoy!" --Belleruth Naperstek, guided imagery expert, Health Journeys

Whether you are in perimenopause, menopause, or somewhere in between, Midlife Mamas on the Moon is a fun and informative book that covers just about everything a woman entering her midlife could possibly think of. From diet to hormone replacement therapy to getting a better sex life to starting a new career, this bold and joyful book will take your breath away with the prospects of just how great your second life can be…when you are prepared for it physically, financially, emotionally and mentally.I highly suggest every woman get this book and keep it at the ready. But for those coming up on forty and beyond, read it NOW. It is priceless and just might answer your most nagging questions about moving into the most powerful phase of your life. --Marie D. Jones for Curled Up With a Good Book

From the Publisher

We’re not over the hill — we’ve moved the hill back! That bulge in the population that was born between 1946 and l964—the baby boomers—has decided that the 40’s and 50’s aren’t old. For the Midlife Mamas of today, 40 is the new 30, and in your 50’s, you’re just getting started! Instead of rocking on the porch, we’re rocking the world with our entrepreneurial spirit, savvy work style, independent approach to aging and health, and enlightened focus on relationships. Throughout most of human history, most women died by the age of 40, so it’s obvious that we’re blazing a trail through uncharted territory. In the 20th century, our great-grandmothers, grandmothers, and mothers have been the guinea pigs for the new longer lifespan, showing us how to—and how not to—navigate through the additional forty-some years we’ve been given.

Imagine your 40’s as the infancy of your second life.

Life changes quickly in the years between 40 and 60, yet this is when we build the foundation for later years. Midlife Mamas have so many choices, so much pressure, and so many demands competing for their time and energy that we sometimes feel paralyzed by the need to sort out the information flying in our faces at warp speed. How do you lose weight, reduce stress, eat the right foods, lower your blood pressure, raise great kids, have great sex, balance your hormones, advance your career, and prepare for your financial future while keeping all your everyday balls in the air? How can you create a healthy, happy future rather than reacting to random events?

What an informative and humorous presentation of Midlife Mamas! Sunny definitely shares her experiences in a witty, positive, and personal way, covering just about every aspect of life. She offers great suggestions and stimulates the reader to action. I appreciate the sections at the end of each chapter--"The Checklist" and "The Checkup from the Neck Up". Sunny has helped define womanhood, the ups and the downs, in a provocative way. This is a MUST READ for all women!

Format: Paperback
I picked up this book expecting another dreary tale about how to cope with menopause, but got a lot more than that! I feel energized by the many tips and nuggets found in this book on everything from understanding your husband to motivating yourself to excercise. So many of the articles you rip out of newspapers and magazines are summed up here, and the book is fun to read.

Looking for a way to take control? This humorous, information-filled book is a great start to doing just that. It's a terrific book to be enjoyed in its entirety, and it's an easy and breezy read. It also works as a quick reference for individual topics of interest. The author has done an exceptional job of formatting and consolidating a vast amount of research. I am happy to say as a medical professional, family counselor, and Midlife Mama, that her data is accurate, approvable, and valuable. It also makes for insightful reading for significant others who share your life, both male and female. Every household should have Midlife Mamas on the shelf. It has the power to inspire you to take control and change your life.

This is a must have book for every woman over 40.

You not only learn helpful hints, but you laugh all the way through.

I'm definitely getting more copies to give away as gifts to those I care about.

Well worth the money to be so inspired.

After reading the chapter on hormones I called my gyno and made an appt. When I disscussed switching hormones she said" whats wrong with what you're on?" When I explained to her my reasons for switching she was not very supportive. This would have never taken place if i had not read this book. Sunny made me laugh as well as open my mind to whats going on out there. Thank you Sunny!

Like having a best friend or a buddy in the waters of life letting you know when the next wave is coming, Sunny explains, shares and provides real answers to real issues. In her book, she has 33 chapters that can be randomly read but directly impact. As a mom of three, with one on the way, that is like getting insider information on the next wave...
