    I am currently reading this book and am three quarters of the way done. Good book to read. I have the same experience some of these stories tell from women who have experience them. From feeling down, anxious, hot flashes or just plain mad at the world for no reason.

    Read it. Makes you feel better that someone else has experienced the same.

    'Changing Course: Women's Inspiring Stories of Menopause, Midlife, and Moving Forward' by Yitta Halberstam

    This anthology contains over 50 stories written by women who have taken the bull by the horns in their journey through midlife. Never sitting idly by, these women will make you laugh and cry, they will comfort and console, and they will encourage and inspire you to make that change in your life whether it is to start a new career, relationship, or move clear across the country. Written in four parts moving from the physical to the spiritual, these stories are filled with wit, humor, and love, and are the perfect antidote for the mature woman moving forward in her life. As one woman keenly observed, 'Let us now praise the midlife crisis.'

    This is a fabulous book!

    I highly recommend this book for all women to enjoy. The stories are from women who give a 'real' picture to pre and post menopause. These heartfelt, easy to read stories will have you sometimes laughing or nodding your head in agreement. Great book!

    Creating a Room

    ¿Changing Course¿ is a literary gift to every woman in mid-life. For years, women have been expected to be silent on this journey, this momentous passage from youth and fertility to another place, where mind and body change, expand, contract in so many surprising ways. How welcome it is to have Yitta Halberstam break this silence. How wonderful to listen to eloquent women discussing vital transformations, which, like so many other human experiences from childhood to old age, we (both men and women) are encouraged not to talk about. Momentous passages, like the first day of school, traveling alone to an unknown place, starting a new job, are usually greeted with: ¿that¿s part of life;¿ don¿t make a big deal about it;¿ ¿everyone gets through it, you will too.¿ Ms. Halberstam has created a room where women can share their experiences from youth through middle-age; where they can describe how they are re-learning and re-conceiving bodies and minds they have inhabited for forty and fifty years. The essays in ¿Changing Course¿ (including some beautiful ones written by Ms. Halberstam herself) have been edited with discretion and insight. A few of the essays might, possibly, ring truer if they left off that final sentence declaring, in summation, that the experience of aging is valuable, instructional, uplifting. Perhaps they ¿protest too much.¿ But these are minor criticisms. ¿Changing Course¿ is pure, authentic and respectful; a collection of voices into which my own can merge with joy.

    Be all that you can be...

    This inspiring group of essays is written by women who often wrote as though they were speaking directly to the reader. Many shared their most intimate feelings and experiences as they approached, went through, and surmounted the difficulties associated with menopause. As a whole, they came out stronger and better - leaving bad marriages, surviving widowhood, starting over to fulfill a dream. Some stories dealt with earlier trauma and the wisdom acquired over the years to deal with it, accept it, and finally to overcome the hurt and move on. It made me take note of who I am, where I am, and how far I still have to go to join these women to be the best I can be.

    The Perfect Birthday Gift

    Changing Course - Women's Inspiring Stories of Menopause, Midlife, and Moving Forward by Yitta Halberstam To date I've had the good fortune to have read every book written by the flavorful storyteller Yitta Halberstam, a visionary indeed. Unmatched tales carved from the life of the legendary Singing Rabbi, 'Holy Brother' was followed by a memorable series of true stories, blessings to answer deep set longings worthy of being recognized as 'Small Miracles'. And now an even greater miracle has emerged with the arrival of 'Changing Course' - a refreshing approach to turning a new leaf upon entering the mystifying portals of midlife and menopause. With illuminating awareness the reader is transposed to a new dimension then comes the sudden realization - its not about hormones -its about people with hormones! The palatable stories are cathartic for the reader exploring sensitivity of the universal psyche, refreshed by courage welcoming the personal resolution. Through it all shines a glow - a legacy of hope by the gifted author.
