Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Confessions of a Menopausal Woman by Andrea McLean.

The menopause. There - we've said it. It's a huge part of every woman's life, and yet it remains one of society's last taboos. An emotionally complex issue that can trigger a whole host of physical and mental side effects, it's a big deal. So why aren't we talking about it? 

Talking about stuff is what women do best; we share and offload, we laugh and we bond over the ridiculous and incredible things our bodies go through. Hearing other people's experiences is what makes our own so much more bearable - because we know that we aren't alone. This is the book that Andrea McLean wished for as she found herself in uncharted territory, grappling with the physical aftershock of a hysterectomy and the psychological fallout of a difficult menopause. 

After announcing live on Loose Women that she would be absent from the screen as she recovered from surgery, Andrea was inundated with letters from other women struggling with the realities of the menopause, who were delighted that someone was finally talking openly and frankly about it. Typically candid, and including tips and tricks on diet, exercise and even your sex life, in Confessions of a Menopausal Woman Andrea brings her trademark humour and honesty to a very hot topic.

Brilliant

This is a must read/listen to book it you are experiencing the menopause or want to understand it better. Andrea has a brilliant way of putting things and making you feel your not alone. Listening to her soothing voice was enthralling. I am quite sad it's finished.
