Editorial Reviews

"So much has been learned about menopause in the last twenty-five years -- what a challenge it had to be to treat the subject in a comprehensive, comprehensible manner, which this book admirably does....A worthy companion to the classic pathfinder book by the same organization."

-- Isaac Schiff, M. D., chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology Service at Massachusetts General Hospital
"Who's afraid of menopause? Not the authors of this book, who offer practical health information and the wisdom of experience to help other women through this life transition."

-- Kathleen Turner, actress
"Our Bodies Ourselves has done it again!...Our beloved guides to our own bodies...lead us through menopause with this detailed, inclusive, and woman-centered book -- a must-read for every woman in her middle years."

-- Helen Zia, author of Asian American Dreams: The Emergence of an American People and former executive editor of Ms. Magazine
