Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kahn, a medical writer and health educator, and Holt, a gynecologist, present here the health concerns of 2000 middle-aged women whom they surveyed, as well as synopses of current medical research on menopause, osteoporosis, hormonal and nonhormonal drug therapies, hysterectomies, sexually transmitted diseases and the like. Excepting some gratuitous advice (for hot flashes, keep a window open or turn on a fan; for sexual doldrums, buy a lacy garter belt), readers will appreciate the practical self-help suggestions and the range of medical opinions represented. The importance of calcium in preventing bone deterioration in post-menopausal women, a subject of debate, is incontrovertibly asserted, with a preference, however, for natural sources over pharmaceutical supplements. Throughout, the authors are sanguine, emphasizing the midlife benefits of health education, exercise, proper diet, stress management and an active sex life. (February 1)
Library Journal
This is a basic guide on the health concerns of women over 40, covering menopause, osteoporosis, estrogen replacement, exercise, diet, sex, and mental attitude. The book recommends moderation in all things and encourages women to make their own decisions regarding medical care and to plan for future health needs. This is broader is scope than Sadja Greenwood's Menopause, Naturally ( LJ 10/15/84) or Jane Fonda's Women Coming of Age ( LJ 11/1/84). However, despite its nice, informal style and a useful glossary and bibliography, Mid-Life Health offers no new information. Buy as needed. Jean E. Crampon, Southern Illinois Univ. Sch. of Medicine Lib., Springfield
