Format: Paperback
These days, when I go to a doctor for anything more severe than sniffles or a sore throat, I take two things--my list of questions and concerns and a companion. I need all the help I can find to be sure that I ask the right questions and remember the doctor's answers and instructions. As we grow older, it's important to take every health issue seriously.

I have two new friends who will be helping with my office visits. Janet Horn and Robin Miller, authors of The Smart Woman's Guide to Midlife and Beyond. Both are medical doctors over fifty, and both know what concerns women of our cohort. They have combined their professional skills and experience to craft a readable, wise, and candid book that I will turn to when I prepare that list of questions. In fact, it will probably have the answers to a good many.

As the title suggests, the authors assume an intelligent reader. They present the basics on older women's health with both candor and completeness. It's all there, from the areas of major concern (cancer, heart disease, senility) through nutrition, exercise, and even plastic surgery. In case the reader needs more information, there is an extensive section of recommended readings and websites.

One appeal of the book is that the authors do not always agree. They have practiced in different parts of the country and have different specialties. (Miller is an internist and integrative medicine specialist, while Horn is certified in internal medicine and infectious disease and is trained in obstetrics and gynecology). They bring their various expertise to each topic and leave it to the reader to make her own choices.

The book is peppered with the personal experiences of patients and of the authors themselves, so it's not heavy reading.

Format: Paperback
Written by two women MD's, this fine book is packed with invaluable information on medical problems that face women as they age. This is in no way a forbidding tome, but a comfortably sized book presenting its information in a user friendly and informal but professional manner. The table of contents is detailed enough to make it easy to access specific needs. At the end of each chapter is a page titled "The Docs Chat About..." in which Dr. J and Dr. R ask one another questions that result in yet more useful advice and guidance. Another page follows,this one devoted to a list called "Pearls of Wisdom," recapping the main points of the previous chapter. The two doctors tell us that "physical aging can be tough especially if we're not prepared to deal with it." They go on to say, "We are not spouting theoretical ideas here...what we've included in this book is actually what we tell our patients and ourselves and each other about how to stay healthy while growing older." I found the contents of the book very reassuring--- aha, so I'm not the only one experiencing these new medical problems, and I felt much less alone. In addition to all of this I have to add: the book is a terrific read!

This is a great book and answers a lot of those embarrassing questions you're even afraid to ask your doc. I highly recommend it if you're in or approaching this stage of life as I am.

Pleasantly written, a nice read that intersperses solid information with the author's own experiences and patient stories. It's on the traditional side of medicine. I was disappointed that there was no mention of the information found in the China Study or other of T. Colin Campbell's works, and the emphasis is on disease curing, more than on building good health, but it is a nice general source of information.

I have not yet read this book from cover to cover yet but the couple of chapters I have read have been very well written and informative. This book offers a wide variety of issues and concerns middle age women may have and addresses many health questions. I like to review the contents and pick and choose a subject depending on my mood that day or whatever may be ailing me. I would recommend this book to other women or to any man who has a middle aged woman in his life and would like to know what she is going through so he can be more supportive.

Janet Horn is a fantastic physician - I know because she was my physician. Her book touches on every medical topic of interest to those of us (women) facing growing older. For those of us already there, it is a great primer of how to best cope. For those not yet there, it's a wonderful guide to what lies ahead. I highly recommend this book.
