This book is exactly what I needed right now. I was looking for information about perimenopause and menopause and how to deal with the side-effects. She gives a lot of information with a little wit to keep it interesting. She explains what is happening in your body, what you can expect and what you can do to feel better. She explains pharmaceutical, natural and surgical options with the pros and cons so you can make the best decision for you. I'll be keeping this book for reference.
