Editorial Reviews

Review

Huston and Lanka's book is a comprehensive and conventional medical guide to this wide span of years, which begins in a woman's thirties.... The goal is to empower women to manage their symptoms while minimizing their risks of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Recommended.
—Library Journal

An excellent overview of the resources allopathic medicine recommends to women as they age, the book reflects both authors' experiences as ob/gyn doctors.
—Yoga Journal



“This book is so timely and thorough for women over 25. Thank you so much for what you have done for women.”
—Laura Buxton, anchor, Morning News, KUSI TV, San Diego



“It’s really a comprehensive women’s health book. You should have it on your shelf.”
—Leslie Gold and Laurie Kramer, hosts of Two Chicks Dishin’, WRKO, Boston

This is a must-have book for all women interpretting health changes post 35! It is thorough, common sense, warmly written and comprehensive! The authors summarize extensive research findings. This enables readers to make educated choices in all areas of their changing health. What a find! What a buy! I've read them all and only a few books deliver what women need to know. This book is outstanding! I recommend Perimenopause to my own doctors, women's clinics and bought a dozen copies for my friends!

I found most of the information OK. But there was stuff in this book that made me wary. Prozac for PMS? Hysterectomy good idea for fibroids? Who would seriously consider these options? Natural progesterone and studies on it dismissed in one paragraph. These things left me rather unimpressed. I would not rely on this book as my main source of information.

A comprehensive guide to all the issues forty-something women face, and well-balanced recommendations on how to make choices. I especially liked how broad the book is, bringing in solutions not only from Western medicine, but also from Eastern arenas. The chapter on Gynecologic Surgery is a must read for all women in this age group. Great job, well written, wish the authors could be my doctors.

I found this book to offer a very sound, common-sense approach to the perimenopausal years. Covering a variety of topics from symptoms to diet to health risks and prevention, it's a wonderful base for all of my other reading on this very well-published but not always well-written topic.
