"Menopause is something none of us want to talk about, it s a club that no one yearns to belong to. So I am on my knees, weeping with gratitude to Christa D'Souza for writing about menopause in a way that doesn't make me want to run screaming for the hills. Finally, a cool look at hot flushes... Men, if you want anything more than the most shallow relationship with a woman over 40, man up and read this book." --Kate Reardon. "Christa D'Souza is warm, witty and wise. No woman - or man, come to that - should be without this book." --Cressida Connolly. "At last a no-nonsense, myth debunking and even amusing look at the M word. The final step to equality has to be turning the menopause from its current secret, shameful status into a topic we can happily discuss, learn to best negotiate and celebrate. In these pages Christa D'Souza puts us firmly on that path." --Mariella Frostrup. "With this book, Christa has branded the over-40s as the cool kids. Who else could make a book on the menopause a rip-roaring, witty but intelligent read? I laughed and laughed and learnt." --Anya Hindmarch. "Been there... survived that... but how I wish I'd had this menopause tour guide to get me through. Brilliant and beautifully written." --Christiane Amanpour, CNN chief international correspondent.
