This was an extremely informative, yet entertaining book about menopause. As a (ahem) woman of mature years, I could relate to every chapter in this book. Some chapters made me laugh right out loud and some I immediately jotted down tips before I forgot them! The author has a very healthy outlook on the whole subject, in my opinion. I read this, no actually I devoured this book, in one very pleasant evening. Definitely recommend this book to all women, and perhaps men that might want to be enlightened as to what their partners go through if they would like to understand our roller coaster called "the 'pause"

Honestly, being a male, menopause has been fairly academic for me. However, I've watched my mother go through it. It was a battle I couldn't understand. D. G. Kaye's book has given me a new understanding of what she went through. I'd recommend it for any one who needs to understand the mechanisms and how to best cope, be you a woman, or a man who has to live with someone for whom this is going to be an issue.

This book falls under the memoir genre

Ms. Kaye shares her personal experiences with the various stages of menopause and how she got through it with the help of her friends and health care providers.

Reading this book made me realize that I was not alone with my feelings. I liked that Ms. Kaye stressed that what works for one woman may not work for another and to keep in contact with your healthcare providers. I also enjoyed her sense of humor. I admire the fact that she found a way that was natural and worked for her.

Warning: This book is for Mature Audiences due to the subject matter and some Adult Language. While a male could read it, I'm not sure that he would understand or appreciate some of the feelings and symptoms expressed by the author.

"Meno-What? A Memoir" is a down-to-earth look at many of the symptoms a woman is likely to have as she enters peri-menopause and menopause. Kaye's sharing of her own experiences is not intended to be an informational manual as much as it is a commiserating with the reader about the "joys" of getting older. Admittedly, there's nothing new or earth-shattering here, but I did find myself smiling and chuckling from time to time at the author's candid confessions. To quote one of Kaye's witty lines, "...the bladder shrinks. This should really come as no surprise, as we find that so many things in this phase of life shrink, grow, fall out, or dry up."

If you're looking for a dry, informational guidebook about menopause, then look elsewhere. If you're looking for an easy, familiar read that feels like you're sharing a glass of wine with a good friend, I think you will enjoy this book.

Can menopause be fun? According to D.G. Kaye it can.
You don't have to be in peri-meno or meno or post meno to appreciate this fast read. D.G. Kaye takes us on a ride through the various symptoms of the "meno dragon" from hot flashes to losing hair to swollen feet and of course, mood swings:
"Seriously, what do people think sleeping for only ten minutes out of every twenty, night after night, will do to our tolerance levels?'
Meno-What? is funny material (think Nora Ephron) but also beneath it serious survival tactics from homeopathic remedies, skin care products and what to wear in the hot flash war.
"My flashes were like a rush of seething flames through the core of my body straight up to my head. It felt as though I should have been able to life a lid off my head to let the steam escape."
Read this book. It's a hoot! (does anyone say hoot anymore?)

This book is hilarious as well as informative. I must say that my own trip along this whacky trip isn't over yet - REALLY looking forward to the end - but quite a few things that have frightened me would have been a lot easier to navigate if I had read this first. Great way to explain the reality of this uncomfortable and potentially mortifying rite of passage with a big hearty chuckle. Every person of the female type should read it. Here's to getting all the hair back on top - do the whiskers ever go away?

Let me tell you that this beautiful woman has a way with words. And she will make you laugh as she describes what it's like to go through menopause. Anyone that can make you laugh while going through menopause is alright in my book.

D.G Kaye writes about trying to keep her sanity while her hormones are raging. This is something most women can relate too. There's memory loss, hot flashes, dry spells, and even the dreaded hair loss. She writes all this and so much more in a fun and informative way. This book is filled with lot's of love and even more laughter.

D.G. tells you how to take life as it comes and she pulls no punches. She's a Canuck from Canada that writes from the heart. If you know someone who's just had a hysterectomy buy this book. In fact every woman reaching that menopause age needs a copy..

This one was an EASY read for me! I could not put it down and didn't till the last page! Not only is it filled with humor, it has some great information! I found myself nodding my head a LOT!
I feel it will be a great seller for those in the throws of a very confusing time in life.
I lucked out, for some reason I have never experienced the HOT flashes but wasn't so blessed to miss out on all the other chapters of this book!
We have groups for everything. Grief and Loss groups and such and there is something about gathering in a group that can relate to whatever you are going through! THIS book does that! You feel as if you can relate and are not alone! This author writes as if you are talking over an iced tea with a friend! I love her humor and look forward to her next book! I am a fan!
