Okay, ladies, listen up. We're all going to have to go through menopause, so isn’t it best to become as educated as you can about the process? And gentleman, most of you have a female in your life. It wouldn’t hurt you to take a gander at some of these books to learn what your loved one is going through.

If you liked "Our Bodies, Ourselves" you'll like this book as well. Clear, concise, well-researched, and the information is presented in an engaging format. Ladies, you will feel just as empowered after reading this book as you did after reading the original "Our Bodies, Ourselves".
by Susan M. Love, Karen Lindsey
I like that Dr. Love looks beyond the standard Western medical information about menopause. She includes information about diet and other lifestyle changes as well as different types of hormone replacement therapy.
by Marianne Legato, Neil B. Shulman, Edmund S. Kim
This book comes with a glossary and a section that recommends where to locate other information on the subject.
by Donna Rogers
This book is concise and extremely helpful. It explains all that goes on through menopause (and before and after menopause) but in language that's very easy to understand. No fluffy or silly stuff— but not at all boring!
by John R. Lee, Virginia Hopkins
This book explains very thoroughly about an alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).
by Christiane Northrup
This book really should be called "The Menopause Bible." Dr. Northrup is the absolute bomb! She teaches you that menopause really isn't a burden, but a time to reinvent yourself. She tells you what changes your body is going through, as well as many ways to deal with those changes. Read her books. Watch her PBS specials. This woman is amazing.
by Barbara Kantrowitz, Pat Wingert Kelly
A good informational book sprinkled with disarming humor.
by Jane Isenberg
Take a break from fanning yourself and read this very funny book about a professor of a certain age who, in between hot flashes, solves mysteries.
Recommending books so good, they'll keep you up past your bedtime. more...
