The No-nonsense Guide to Menopause

Barbara Seaman and Laura Eldridge
New York; Simon and Schuster: 2008
482 pages

Seaman’s book is a compendium for women transitioning to menopause. It describes symptoms and health concerns, using anecdotes to guide women through this important time of. It is written using lay terms and in a style that is never dry, yet the issues are not oversimplified.

The book is well-researched and sources are carefully vetted. It is conversational in tone and is a reference likely to be of lasting value for peri- and postmenopausal women.

Barbara Seaman has a long history of antagonism toward the medical establishment and, in particular, the pharmaceutical industry. Compared to her 2003 book, The Greatest Experiment Ever Performed on Women, this book is calming, even to physicians.

It is worth reading and even owning. I do recommend it.
