Publisher's Summary

The menopause is a completely natural, normal life event, but a lack of information exists around how best to manage it. Using the latest evidence and her own experience, GP and menopause specialist Dr Louise Newson has created a one-stop guide to give you the facts, bust the myths and help make choices on how to have your best possible menopause. Includes an easy-to-understand guide to signs, symptoms and health implications of the menopause, advice on holistic treatments and why it’s time to rethink hormone replacement therapy (HRT), tips on getting the best out of your medical appointment, support with your menopause at work and home, plus coping strategies for family and friends.

GP and menopause specialist Dr Louise Newson runs her own menopause and wellbeing centre in Stratford-upon-Avon. An experienced medical writer, editor and media commentator, she founded the popular My Menopause Doctor website to help women and health professionals access up-to-date, accurate information.

very informative

I was suffering in silence until I listened to Dr Newson at the Gabi Logan show. Dr Newson's book was an amazing tool to understand my menopause. Thank you Doctor.

Very Biased towards HRT

While some of the information in the audiobook was worthwhile it was very self promoting towards the author's clinic and strongly biased towards HRT. Discussion about alternative therapies was minimal and dismissive suggesting there were considerable risks involved. At the same time discussion about the risks of HRT were equally dismissive suggesting it was all based on outdated and incorrect past data. It does not live up to the sub-heading of "All you need to know in one concise manual".
Overall production quality was poor. The audio itself was very clear but repetitive in many places with one reader essentially repeating what the other had just said. Also reading out numerous web links verbatim was simply ludicrous. How hard would it be to compile them into an accompanying PDF like so many other audiobooks do.
Finally, the book is very much targeted for the UK reader. All links and references are for the UK.
There is some useful information here but it fell way short of expectations and certainly didn't deliver value for money.
