The Smart Woman's Guide to Midlife and Beyond is a complete, holistic, and state-of-the-art road map for any woman who is motivated to become a more effective steward of her health. The authors' relaxed, personal, and insightful style makes critical health information accessible. This book is a must-have for any woman inspired to improve her health trajectory.
-Mark C. Pettus MD, FACP, medical director of the Kripalu Institute for Integrated Healing and author of It's All in Your Head

There is no doubt that women past the age of fifty have different health issues than younger women-a fact often overlooked by many physicians. These women need to know how to care for their maturing bodies. Drs. Horn and Miller explore the full spectrum of mature women's health issues in a candid, conversational manner that integrates the body, mind, and spirit. A much-needed book.
-Kevin Soden, MD, host of Healthline on Retirement Living Television

I have often wished that there were a doctor in my family I could ask for health advice. If you have shared this desire, you'll love this book. It's a practical insider's guide to what maturing women need to be thinking about, and it's written as though the authors were concerned friends talking with you. Drs. Horn and Miller have superb training and years of practical experience caring for women patients. It shows on every page of this excellent book.
-Judge Glenda Hatchett, star of the nationally syndicated television program Judge Hatchett

The authors' approach is accessible and entertaining. These are the doctor girlfriends you want to call because they know everything about the area of your concern-not only from their medical practices, but also from their own personal experiences.
-Robin Wolaner, founder of Parenting magazine and founder and CEO of TeeBeeDee (tbd.com), an online network for people over forty

This is the girlfriends' guide to taking charge of your health. And these girlfriends are doctors. A winning combination!
-Ari Brown, MD, pediatrician and author of Baby 411
