Book recommendations

Postby Lori » Wed Feb 23, 2005 12:19 pm

I am wondering what books, if any on menopause are suggested.
Last year I got The Change before the Change. Now that I am IN menopause I was looking for something that addresses the needs of the stage I am going through now.

I am a reader and for me that is my best therapy. I checked out the library and the most current book was prior 21st century! :roll:
I went to Barnes & Noble and found 3 books, nothing inspiring.

So any suggestions? And anyone know why there aren't more books out there? I am so inspired to start writing one of my own, as soon as I get more info.

Have you seen my suggestions on this page, Lori?

My eyes are crossed from reading so many books on menopause for the last 8 years! :) I've tried to offer a range of books from technical to humorous, plus my own comments where I had some.

The book on top (The Midlife Bible) just got a good write up in the Washington Post as being better than Menopause for Dummies and The Idiot's Guide to Menopause, but that writer also called my cartoons "moronic"..... I thought MOST cartoons ARE's certainly not brain surgery or museum quality art! Everyone to their opinion of course! :)

Let me know if you have any questions about the books, ok? I can also get some of the authors to answer questions here on the board, such as:

Thanks Dee

The first time I clicked on your link it only showed the one book - The Midlife Bible. I checked again and now there is a whole page of them

Thanks so much :D
