Maggie Spilner's walking articles were my favorites when she was the walking editor at Prevention Magazine so it was a nice surprise to discover that she has a new book out on the subject. The book is well written ensuring painless learning and lots of motivation to get you out the door and walking.

Chapter 1 covers the benefits of walking to help relieve the symptoms of menopause.

Next is information everyone will enjoy and use on getting started followed by 14 walking programs to chose from for variety and fun. You can pick and chose the ones that are immediately interesting to you and if, in the future, you'd like to undertake any of the other options, all that is required is a little additional reading. My current favorites are walking with a pedometer, walking with your dog, birding, gardens and walking vacations.

There's a chapter on weight gain during menopause and a final section provides information on yoga poses and breathing.

Everything you need to start a successful walking program that you'll want to continue for the rest of your life.

Maggie Spilner, America's favorite Walking Guru, certified trainer and yoga instructor, offers just the right dose of fun motivation, laughter, and practical tips to get women at midlife and beyond to put "WALK" at the top of their To-Do List! A daily dose of walking is powerful medicine that helps mitigate virtually all the changes women experience during the menopause transition. I thoroughly enjoyed Maggie's friendly, soul-baring, supportive writing style and highly recommend this book for women who are beginning to realize that taking time for a daily walk --especially combined with Yoga -- maybe the best, safest, most convenient and least expensive menopause medicine.

This book is written well but for me, I have done so many exercise routines that it didn't help me as much as maybe it could help others. There are great ideas on how to burn more calories throughout the day, so it's probably more valuable for others.
