Editorial Reviews

A thorough review of relevant facts about menopause from every known medical specialty that has anything to say about it. Covers physiology, diagnosis, and epidemiology; medical and gynecological aspects; other problems such as breast disease, skin care, and sleep disturbance; and management and therapeutic guidelines. Because the specialist contributors are writing for nonspecialists, most of the text is accessible to readers with a minimum of medical knowledge. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
