8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Dr A.M Cole on July 23, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is one of those rare books that if read with the right intent will gently but persuasively change your life forever. This book is based on over a decade of practical experience working with women who have experienced difficult and often extreme menstrual pain and complications (including for e.g. endometriosis). What I particularly liked about it is the way the author draws on real women's stories, based on her many year's work as a Psychotherapist, and the way she weaves these individual stories into a wider cultural experience, revealing the great hidden power and meaning of menstruation. While women who have experienced physical period pain or disruptive psychological mood swings may have tried following nutritional advice for pain alleviation this is the first book of its kind to consider a holistic body/mind/soul/spirit approach to healing. There is a personal courage and frankness in this writing and the author's own experience of severe menstrual pain and her path to healing is a powerful inspiration. It strikes me that many women - modern, feminist, self-aware women - still deny the power and meaning of their feminine cycle. This book highlights the ways that culture is literally written in the body and shows us how notions of linear time, rationality, competition v co-operation are challenged by the raw beauty and strength of the menstrual cycle. This is a wise, practical and compassionate book. I can't recommend it highly enough to all women and men who want to learn more about the nature of the feminine and the joy and strength in knowing it.

Format: Paperback
This is an inspiration to all women, whether they suffer from menstration or not. It's an amazing feeling to know that you aren't alone in the world, with the emotional upheavel, and pain, caused by menstration. Most books I've encountered relate to the MEDICAL side of "period problems". I have now found one that recognises AND gives practical ways in which we, as normal functioning women, can experience and dare I say enjoy our specialness. After reading THE WILD GENIE, I see menstration as something to look forward to and celebrate, rather than loathe. An inspiration to women of all ages! Well done Alex... thankyou.

Alexandra Pope has an exquisite understanding of the nature of the deep feminine. "The Wild Genie" is like a road map for women's changing nature. Alexandra builds on Women's personal stories unfolding the essence of healing menstrual symptoms. Earthy, profound,supportive and practical information put " The Wild Genie" on the top of my list as a must for all women and men as a companion to understanding the female cycle and its echoes for the world.
