    Age of Unreason

    I saw the author on Bill Maher and so much of what she said resonated for me. So I read her sample on my Nook and it made me laugh. Now I really need to laugh because I don't know if I am menopausal, post menopauspal, or just murderpausal. I was hoping to find some humor and possibly some wisdom for a life's experience that I have no compass. There is no village for me to go to a crone and ask her what to expect or how to weather this storm. My husband has been telling me for months that I am one angry woman and I have changed. I wanted to try and get a little of the old me back through humor. Well, I learned some things and laughed a little but I was disappointed. 25% of the book was humorous, 25% of the book was research and references and the rest seemed to be the author's attempt to explain choices more than her experiences with menopause. I don't care how menopausal I am, if I find a person that I think is dead, I am calling 911 not my sister. Now her sister, however, is a different story. I wish she would write a book because she really seems to have it all together. So in closing, if you are just starting perimenopause this would be a good book to read to give you a clue as to what to expect and she will give you good references for more medical knowledge. However, if you are in the throes of hot flashes and pitching dishes at people......not so much.
