"I think the book is very well written and easy to read (and I’m not a reader). I liked the “Women’s Stories”, I could relate to many of them.
I wish I’d have read it three years ago as I spent two years thinking I was losing my mind.
I would definitely recommend it. Reading it at the age of 40 would be ideal (forewarned is forearmed), but still a good read if you’re perimenopausal, for reassurance if nothing else. I’ve done a fair bit of research by myself already, but still learned from reading this".
"Thank you - really useful book".
"What an interesting read! It contains all the information you need to be able to understand what goes on with the menopause and how to get through it.
I would thoroughly recommend this to everyone, not only those who are going through it but those who are in the support role too".
"It was very easy to read and helpful. I wish I'd had it to read 5 years ago".
