And it does it in a light-hearted way without dumbing down and without emphasising one factor or treatment over others. It is a thorough, complete guide that is a delight to read. Anyone who reads it will come away with new information and a fresh insight into the state of menopause today.

Due to “tireless campaigning”, the message continues, “It’s the biggest women’s issue of the moment.” I appreciate what the authors are trying to do, raise awareness of the menopause, so rating this is problematic because it was so boring, it could have been way shorter with bullet points, my eyes kept slipping ahead; significantly. A fierce battle for campaign territory has forced TV presenters Mariella Frostrup and Davina McCall into a tactical retreat.

This friendly, feisty book has all the myth-busting facts, tactics and strategies we need to sail through menopause and not just survive, but thrive. -- Alice Hart-Davis, founder of The Tweakments Guide In this no-holds-barred guide, Mariella shares her own journey through the menopause, along with the latest science, advice from leading experts and humorous illustrations - to provide an informative source of wisdom and enlightenment.

I love this book and it was a joy to listen to other women’s experiences as I enter my 40s and perimenopause. This book is a must read for any woman going through the stressful chapter of menopause. This information is comprehensive & valuable and the advised resolutions are practical.I inhaled this book, it's fantastic. Women of all ages need to read it. It’s genuinely helped me understand why I wake up at 5 a.m. and made me laugh along the way.' My quest for inclusive information about the menopause continues. This book started well, as you might expect from a journalist Mariella Frostrup opens with a thorough and detailed description of what menopause actually is, including the difference between peri-menopause and post menopause, as well as detailing the hormones whet they do for us and how their changes affect us. It then began to lose its way a little and became much more of her own particular experience of the menopause and whilst that was helpful in understanding more about her particular issues insomnia, hot flushes and brain fog, there was less space for understanding the other numerous symptoms although some are mentioned, I would have welcomed an equally deep exploration of the full range of symptoms. I was excited – especially when I got the offer of an advance preview to review. Did I want one? You betcha… This book skillfully leads you through the uncommonly known challenges of menopause. Author successfully unfolds a broad scope of information such as physical, mental & emotional symptoms, along with how to deal with sexual & relationship issues. Eventually publication day came round and I bought the Kindle edition so I could get it straight away. Which actually means you can rest assured – as far as I’m concerned, this review has no PR link whatsoever and I am under no pressure (from me or anyone else) to be nice!

You don't have to be without the information needed to make your journey through the menopause, easily and without feeling flustered. In this book, I will enable and empower you to understand the physical and emotional changes you will go through. You will also be able to understand the various stages of the menopause and gain a positive outlook on a natural part of your life. Mariella Frostrup is one of the UK's most respected broadcasters and columnists. Her contribution to arts and literature along with her advocacy on gender and social issues have placed her at the forefront of the cultural landscape. She made the groundbreaking BBC1 documentary The Truth About the Menopause and she currently presents her own daily show on Times Radio covering issues of the day, from arts and culture to politics. She lives in Somerset with her husband and two children. The book opens with a history of how menopause has been understood or misunderstood over time. This was written in such an engaging style that I found myself by turns infuriated and amused.This meticulously researched book looking at all aspects of the stages of the menopause (before, during and after) is told in a frank and often very sarcastic manner, which took a bit of getting used to, but I enjoyed by the end. Mariella Frostup gives her personal experience in each chapter, but they also include the voices of lots of different women, and some men, and this helped to show how diverse an experience it can be. There is so much information here, that it can be a lot to take in, but I plan to get a hard copy (having enjoyed the audiobook) so that I can use it as a reference book too. After listening to this audiobook, you will be able to talk to your doctor with confidence and calmly assess the right path to take for your unique journey through the menopause. I will also help you to navigate the best path through the roller coaster ride that is known as "the change". Answering all these questions and more, Mariella shares her own journey through the menopause – along with the latest science and funny illustrations – to provide an informative source of wisdom, humour and enlightenment. One of my biggest bugbear with menopause books – especially celebrity menopause books – is that they feel they have to be “worthy” and teach a “lesson”. I don’t want that. I want a book that will explain menopause and have a bit of life and fun about it. You know, like 50Sense… And if the authors are right about magnesium spray for calf pain. They will get another 2 stars. (when I went to the doctor her 'helpful' advice was, "we all get aches and pains as we get older"!!!)
