In 1984, Dr. Penny Wise Budoff's "No More Hot Flashes and Other Good News" revolutionized America's attitude toward women's health. Now, Dr. Budoff--over 50 and post-menopausal herself--has created a new book, drawing on her work at her renowned women's health center and the knowledge and expertise of eight contributing physicians to share the latest information on perimenopuase, menopause, women's surgical decisions, and more.
