Gayle Sand has been a columnist, restaurant critic, and editor-at-large for a Florida newspaper. She lives in St. Augustine, Florida, and New York City. This is her first menopause.From Library Journal:
The books on menopause keep coming! These two new offerings approach the subject from different viewpoints, but both convey basic information. Is It Hot in Here... is Sand's personal account of her menopausal transition. Using a humorous approach, she discusses her experiences with hot flashes, finding the right physician, interpersonal relationships, and hormone replacement therapy. Although this book may validate some women's feelings, there is nothing new here. Not a necessary purchase. The first in a series of women's health books from Hyperion, A Woman Doctor's Guide to Menopause covers the basic facts about hormones, osteoporosis, heart disease, exercise, and nutrition from a medical point of view. It also has a glossary of medical terms, an agency referral list, and a list of necessary medical tests. Coverage is similar to that in Ruth Jacobowitz's 150 Most Asked Questions About Menopause (Hearst, 1992) and Sadja Greenwood's Updated Menopause Naturally (Volcano, 1992. rev. ed.). This reasonably priced, up-to-date paperback is a good addition for public library and consumer health collections that need another menopause book.
