Recommended Reading for Menopausal Women
For women suffering from the effects of Menopause, any information that helps to alleviate the pain and suffering of this terrible affliction is most welcome. There are countless books on the market that profess to have the answers you seek. Every other author claims to have new, groundbreaking material that will completely change your life. These claims are optimistic at best and misleading at worst. Of all the books I have read on the subject of Menopause, the following are by far the most informative and insightful. Make yourself a cup of tea, put your feet up, and enjoy the read!
