Don't Sweat ItPellegrino, Nicky
If all of New Zealand was to read this book, half of the readers would be guaranteed to have, at some point, intimate knowledge of the tumultuous life stage this manual covers. With such widespread personal impact, the other half could be well advised to read it too ...
This is 'the change' we are talking about, that once taboo subject, now firmly under the microscope in this well-researched book. Health writer Nicky Pellegrino brings together the latest information about menopause and perimenopause, and her own and many other women's experiences of this life-changing event.
Written with humour, empathy and authority, this definitive guide is encapsulated by its subtitle: how to make 'the change' a good one.
Comments from BDS Reviewers
"The bits of humour, and Nicky's personal experience thrown in, makes for a good read - especially if you are a middle-aged woman!"
"Factual, easy to read and interesting."
"The book has a light but serious touch. Well researched and very interesting."
"I will be recommending it to my daughters who are in their 40s."
"I daresay this book would never be chosen by a book club that has many men which is a great pity."
"It is honest - the author tells the downside such as depression and rages, but always with suggestions for how they can be dealt with."
"Her own story does not intrude, but she uses it to illustrate her points."
