Is it Hot in Here or Is it Me?

A Personal Look at the Facts, Fallacies, and Feelings of Menopause

by Gayle Sand (Paperback 1994)

The author is an extremely witty storyteller who tells her own change of life story in a sometimes laugh-out-loud, funny manner. Various menopause issues are discussed including hot flashes, anxiety, osteoporosis, decreased libido and insomnia. Potential coping and treatment strategies for these problems are covered briefly. These include yoga, meditation, nutrition, humor and hormone replacement.

The value of female bonding and sharing of experiences during this phase of life is strongly emphasized.

This friendly book is recommended for anyone who wants an entertaining overview of menopause. The emotional and physical challenges of this life stage are eased a bit through the author's humorous self-revelation.
