At last, a deeply optimistic guide to all the long, often mysterious years of menopause: the role of hormones and the controversy over hormone therapy, the truth about hot flashes ... and how to deal with one in the middle of a meeting, the impact on sexuality and how to counteract that wavering libido. There are chapters on memory (how to protect it), moods (how to ride them out), and sleep (how to get what you need). And finally, why this period can be a natural springboard to staying healthy, feeling great, and looking beautiful for that next act in your life.
