I have been educating myself about menopause since I hit 40. This book covers everything I discovered plus gives a spiritual side that medical literature never covers. It is full of excellent practical advice. Dr. Northrup combines traditional medicine with other 'medicines' in a nice balance. 'THE WISDOM OF MENOPAUSE' and ' Understanding: Train of Thought' are life changing books. I can't recommend them too highly!

Poorly Written and Unorganized

This book was horrible! Dr. Northup and Oprah need to be ashamed for recommending it. I am an avid reader and found it to be difficult to follow and disjointed. I found more information from other books and the internet. This was a complete waste of my money.

    Too Much Personal Information

    I was disappointed after reading the first 2 chapters of this. It was so highly acclaimed, but I found the book to contain too much personal information that was not relative to the subject at all. When reading a self-help book on how to cope with menopause, I did not expect to hear about the writers problems with a husband guilty of infidelity. What has that got to do with menopause... Too much Drama... I really felt that she and her husband were in competition with each other, again what has that got to do with menopause.... Just the facts, just the facts....

    Unsure about this book.

    I bought this book after going into unexpected surgical menopause wanting to educated myself on what to expect. I'm sorry the author went through a divorce but I don't understand how that relates to others going through menopause. My marriage is stronger then it's ever been.
