Diane Danzebrink's unrivalled knowledge and personal experiences make this book an absolutely essential read for women who are living with the menopause, or anyone who needs to know more to support their families, friends, or colleagues.
What sets this book apart is its unvarnished honesty. Diane, the global thought leader on menopause, with a flair for cutting through the fluff, addresses the complexities of menopause with a direct and engaging tone. It's a no-nonsense approach that speaks to the modern woman - one who is well-informed and discerning - doesn't shy away from the blunt truths.
Diane Danzebrink is an absolute powerhouse within the menopause conversation. She is a source of knowledge, wisdom, encouragement and support to individual women, but has also been instrumental in putting menopause on the political agenda. I'm delighted to see her publish this book, which blends her own heart wrenching experiences with evidence-based information, advice, and the same no-nonsense campaigning approach she's admired for across the women's health community.
This book should be on the recommended reading list for every medical school, and should be in every hospital library! It quite literally covers everything you need to know, and I will be giving it to friends and family. I especially appreciated the chapters on the more taboo menopausal issues including genitourinary syndrome of menopause and mental health - often the issues both women and clinicians are embarrassed to discuss.
This book speaks woman to woman. Diane writes with compassion and humility. With great skill she translates the evidence and guidance into a language that can be understood by all and does so with the insight and understanding that can only be gained from personal experience. As Diane would say, 'if you are a woman, you know a woman or you love a woman', I recommend that you read this book.
This book is the absolute bible for any woman who is having hormone issues. It is a book that I as a British Menopause Society specialist and PPMC trainer will be recommending to my mentees and patients to read.
Absolutely amazing, and a must have tool to help navigate the world of menopause for everyone regardless of age or gender.
An absolute must read! The most informative, empowering book that provides a deeper understanding of the mental and physical symptoms of the menopause journey and how it can affect you and those around you.

As a specialist in the field, I have read several menopause books and I can honestly say that this book ticks all the boxes! It provides balanced, evidence-based information that cuts through the hype which tends to polarise views about this subject, to deliver the facts in a clear, understandable and relatable format. This book will empower women to make informed choices about how they manage their individual menopause transition.
Diane is just, quite simply, brilliant. Despite everything that has been thrown at her, from dealing with the whole thing in the first place, to devoting her time to help others. This book covers everything you need to know and didn't know you needed to know! And it's all done in a way that makes you feel like you're talking to a friend, which is how Diane makes me feel every time she comes on my show. Keep going, Diane, you utter legend!
