So many wonderful points in the story... Dr Allmen's ability to connect with us on a personal level and professional level with humor and fact shines throughout this program! What did I like best? Each of us will find a story in this book that resonates with us, Menofog, dementia, hotflashes, no rest for the weary !
Humor for sure...personal connective stories and professional facts make you happy you took the time to listen to this book!
It could be... but I listen to audiobooks during long runs so I wanted to preserve some chapters for later runs because it was so interesting, I was able to listen and run, learn and laugh at the same time.
"Read this book!"
This is the first book I've reviewed. I did my research before deciding to read this particular book on menopause and women's health. I liked that Dr. Allmen is a practicing physician and has studied menopause specifically for many years. I had already been to several doctors about my premature menopause symptoms and was not happy with the options I was given. After reading this book, I decided to become an actual patient of Dr. Allmen. I thought the treatments she outlined in her book were based on extensive research and at times contradicted what other Gynecologists had told me in the past. It was refreshing to see that there are other treatment options out there for me. It's unfortunate though that most women I know are unaware of these options. I will be personally spreading the word! Lastly, I truly enjoyed Dr. Allmen's wit throughout the book. It was a great listen. I look forward to my upcoming appointment.
"Excellent book, succinct and easy listen."
i learned a lot. will be buying in print edition too for easy reference.
