Ageing is not a disease and affects both sexes' Observer --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

When the author reached modern times I felt that she did not accept that some women really, really do have problems during (peri)menopause. I can remember, not too long ago, that many woman ended up “institutionalized” when their bodies did not adjust to the drastic changes in hormone levels when women reach menopause. (Since the concept of Hormone Replacement Therapy had already been well researched by then, and proven effective, I do not understand why so many women did not receive HRT – including my mother. And, even earlier than that, some women “took to their beds” and became “invalids”, unable to deal with the stresses of day to day living. Other than the author’s not seeming to relate to the women who do suffer terribly, this book was worth the time to read.
