Informative. Some of it was a little technical, but I would recommend it if you are considering any type of Hormone Replacement Therapy. It would be nice to have an update from the author, since the book was published 2 years ago.

Dr Rako, a psychiatrist, offers a personal and sensitive view of the sex lives of women as they approach menopause. She speaks directly to the reader in clear and concise language and validates a woman¿s need for sexual function throughout her life. She offers useful suggestions to restore a woman¿s sexual response. This is an important book for women who have lost the ability to function sexually as a result of menopause.

I felt this book needed better editing, organization, and depth.
