I was surprised at how accurate this book is. I'd never heard of a hormone horoscope before, but I'm a believer now. And I learned a lot about my body, too. I definitely recommend this book to women.

In 28 Days, author Gabrielle Lichterman breaks down the causes and consequences of the female monthly hormonal cycle in a thoroughly enjoyable, accessible, and colloquial way. The first book of its kind, 28 Days is literally a book to live by. It is hard science made fun. Informative and exciting, I highly recommend this book.

I first met Gabrielle back in 1999, when she had her well-known 'GabGab CamCam', and got to know her and her writings. When she announced she was writing this book, I had a hard time waiting until it came out - but it was well worth the wait. Gabrielle's research skills and attention to detail render her work informative and useful, while her unique style and sense of humor also make it one hell of a fun read. I laughed at something on almost every page (mostly because it's all true). When I got my copy of 28 Days, the first thing I did was open it to the chapter listing and look at the (quite descriptive) titles. Just from that, I was able to figure out that I was on Day 15 of my cycle. The contents of that chapter helped me understand why I had scarfed down two double-meat burger combos and a small bag of chips - all before 11 am. Every chapter explains how the changing hormone levels for that particular day will affect your mood, your libido, your eating habits, your decisions - even the way you spend money. How many books can do that? Gabrielle Lichterman has given us a long-overdue guide to one of the most basic rhythms of life, focusing our attention on things we might otherwise overlook. I carry 28 Days wherever I go and consult it every day. So should you.

Hallelujah! Someone has finally made sense of my hormones! I never recognized the pattern to my monthly mood swings and energy levels, until I read this book. Sure, I knew that sometimes I would cry about the fact that I had run out of orange juice, and other times I would be likely to reenact a scene from the Exorcist if someone looked at me sideways. I knew that certain days I could zip around at the speed of light, and others I felt like I could barely drag myself out of bed but I never understood when or why. Now, I can predict and plan for these days, as well as know when I'll be at my peak for presentations, going on vacation, or getting it on! I've also learned how to prevent cramps, when to give into cravings, and when I'll be most likely to whip out my wallet and spend like it's going out of style. My boyfriend¿s reading the book now, too, so he knows what to expect and why. Gabrielle Lichterman tells women what we should have been told ages ago, and she does it with humor and style. Her expert advice, written in a fun way that everyone can understand, makes it feel like you're talking to your best friend. The best thing is that the book addresses all women. On the pill or off it, in a relationship or not, long or short cycles, you need this book!

I got so excited by reading this that I had to hop online and tell you about it! I intend to buy this for all my girlfriends who routinely gripe and moan along with me about our reliable, but until now, unpredictable mood swings. '28 Days' is an expertly written book that helps women feel understood and no longer held hostage by the whims of wily hormones. One of the best things about this fun and engaging read is that, not only is it based on science with accompanying references, but it's useful for every day. Like a travel guide to yourself, you'll return again and again to '28 Days.'

I already knew that when PMS hits, all I want is my couch, my Ben N Jerry's, and my remote (and sometimes a tazer gun for anyone who gets in my way). I just never knew why, or what to do about it. This book takes women (and our clueless men) though each day of our 28 day cycle, explaining which hormones are surging, which are retreating, and how that affects everything from confidence level to verbal ability to impulse shopping. It has tips on how to reduce cravings, stop cramps before they happen, and make the most of your sex life (even if, like me, you're in a dating desert). The author modifies her information and advice to include women who are single, in relationships, on birth control pills and off, and she writes with sass and humor, so you feel like you're getting advice from a friend. Now when I'm deciding when I'm going to ask my boss for time off, schedule a reunion with the ex, or have a beach day with the girls, I check this book and see what day I'm on. I'm addicted! And if you've ever tried to address a serious problem with your guy only to hear him ask 'What are you, on your period!?', or tried unsuccessfully to explain why he can't squeeze your breasts like ripe melons, especially on THAT WEEK, get him a copy too!
