I'm 46, perimenopaual, & part of the 34% of women our age who are single not by choice, but because my ex, and most older men in general, are insensative about menopause. The most frustrating aspect of other books I've read is that, they almost always address readers as if they are already married or in LTRs. This book not only aknowledges us, but it gives us hope that although the playing field is grossly unfair now (Men have more options medically & due to their faulty biology they trample over mature women to date 20 year year olds!), things can and often do get better post-menopause, especially when it comes to sex, dating, & relationship prospects. Other books of this sort either ignore this issue or tell us to resign ourseves to the idea of being sexless and single for the rest of our lives. The advice provided here, especially regarding midlife sexuality applies both to those already in relationships & those who are in what I refer to as the "Perimenopausal Relationshnip Drought." True fact ladies: The BRAIN is the biggest sex organ we have!!! It's vitally important for single women to use this time to explore every aspect of their sexuality (Even if it is a solo endeavor!) and to figure out what is satisfying and not satisfying to us. The results may be unsatisfying in the short term, but the way I look at it, it prepares us so that once we do hit post menopause, we'll be ready, if god willing , opprotunity knocks!!!

This is a perfect book for the woman who wants a little practical advice on menopause as well some of the more comedic side effects. Having read Elaine Ambrose's 'The Red Tease', it's not surprising that 'Menopause Sucks' can bring you to tears and laughter!
