"Bravo! This book should be a birthday gift for every 40-year-old (actually, probably earlier)."? Barb Malat, CPNP, PA-C, co-chair, Menopause and Hormone Therapy Committee, Association of Reproductive Health Professionals.

Of all the books on the market, this is the soundest?based on science, the material is vetted by top authorities in the field, the facts are up to date, the writing engaging, the tone upbeat. It's the essential guide for every woman who wants to take charge of her health.

Book Description:

For significant milestones, significant books: first, Our Bodies, Ourselves, then What to Expect When You’re Expecting, and now, Is it Hot in Here? Or is it me? The Complete Guide to Menopause. Written with an uncompromising intelligence and wit by two award-winning Newsweek journalists, Is it Hot in Here? Or is it me? is the essential, comprehensive, up-to-the-minute, deeply optimistic book for the millions of women in their forties-to-sixties.

The menopause transition—so often mysterious—varies greatly from woman to woman. Finally, here is the one book that makes the full scope of it accessible and understood. It covers the role of hormones and the controversy over hormone therapy. The truth about hot flashes . . . and how to deal with one in the middle of a meeting. A top-to-bottom assessment of the aches, pains, and assorted ills that can afflict menopausal women. The impact on sexuality, and how to counteract that wavering libido. (Yes, it’s possible to buy a sex toy without the neighbors—or the children— finding out.) There are chapters on memory (how to protect it), moods (how to ride them out), and sleep (how to get it). And then an entire section on using this period as a springboard to staying healthy, feeling great, and looking beautiful for the next act in your life. A complete approach to losing middle-age weight (and tips on finding jeans that will make you look as if you’ve had a tummy tuck). The essential exercises to keep bones strong. Dealing with dry skin and thinning hair. Habits (and recipes) to begin to encourage heart health now.

From the Back Cover:

Deeply optimistic, reassuring, and essential, the book the North American Menopause Society called “required reading” is now completely revised and updated. It covers: the role of hormones and the latest advances in hormone therapy. The truth about hot flashes and how to deal with one in the middle of a meeting. The impact of menopause on sexuality and how to counteract a wavering libido. New findings on why it’s difficult for menopausal women to lose weight. There are chapters on memory (how to protect it), moods (how to ride them out), and sleep (how to get what you need). And finally, why this period of life can be a natural springboard to staying healthy, feeling great, and looking beautiful for the next act of your life.
