There are physiological reasons why “the change” means change. “The change” is not just physical but cerebral as well. The latest scientific research proves that the hormonal changes caused by menopause means that women are biologically programmed to make the second half of life, the best half. In her ground-breaking book, Jill Shaw Ruddock offers answers to the questions women think and care about and sets out a game plan. From money to the mind, dating to divorce, exercise to eating, separation to self-expression, this book provides hands on advice on how to harness the new found focus that menopause brings to ensure the next fifty years are not to be feared, but celebrated. “This book offers the sanest of advice: it’s witty, wise and answers a host of questions about topics people don’t usually like to mention … such as sex and money. Women can now move into their later years with confidence and take pleasure in the second half of their lives” Baroness Joan Bakewell, Journalist, Television and Radio Presenter
