The book "does two important things. I guides women through a stressful time with its essential enlightening information, and it makes a convincing argument that the change of life can be the beginning of someting positive." -People (from the cover)

Menopause. In our youth-obsessed culture, the very word is a room emptier. The menopause club is one nobody wants to admit she has joined.
The author speaks candidly about menopause.

How are women of the baby-boomer generation handling the "M word," the change whose name they dare not speak? According to Sheehy's short report (expanded from her 1991 Vanity Fair article), many are utterly unprepared. The author ( Pathfinder ), who has been negotiating this passage herself, talks to doctors, nutritionists and a cross-section of women, examining both her own vacillation over estrogen replacement therapy and the more general questions of its side effects. We also hear from women who, having started families late in life, are catapulted from first babies to first hot flashes , and from such celebrities as Candice Bergen and Lesley Ann Warren. There are many frenetic and some encouraging menopause war stories here, but few accounts from women who experienced little difficulty during these years. Sheehy includes discussion of herbal remedies, exercise and dietary defenses against osteoporosis. While remaining somewhat inconclusive, her review of this stage of life for women in anti-aging America is detailed and sympathetic.

This book sets out to erase the stigma of menopause and "render normalcy to a normal physical process".

There is essential new information on hormone replacement therapy, the hysterectomy trap, early menopause, African-American women's experiences, Chinese medicine and natural remedies, male menopause, and more.
