The Everything Health Guide to Menopause

2nd Edition
Kate Bracy Kalb, RN, MS, ARNP, and Kathryn Arendt, MD

Cincinnati, OH; Adams Media; 2007
321 Pages

The Everything Health Guide to Menopause does a good job of addressing what the authors term "the struggle and confusion" that women may experience as they go through menopause. They indeed achieve a tone of reassurance and normality in discussing many of the symptoms of menopause, as well as diseases that are more prevalent in midlife.

The book provides women with basic information for understanding the changes that may occur during peri- and postmenopause. It is extensive in scope, covering topics including hot flashes, physical changes, cognitive and neurological changes, mood swings, sexuality, and medication, as well as nonmedical alternatives that might be helpful.

The book offers practical coping strategies as well as evidence-based summaries of the controversies facing women. As such, the book is a primer for a large amount of relevant information that can serve as a starting point for women seeking to learn about the transitions they are likely to experience.

I recommend the book for women as an easy-to-read source of information related to these menopause transitions.
