Addressing a population starved for information, the co-author of
Managing Your Menopause answers questions about hot flashes, hormone replacement therapy, and more for the thousands of women who are entering menopause. 50,000 first printing. $30,000 ad/promo. Lit Guild Alt. Tour.
One of the universal rites of passage, menopause daily affects approximately 3500 American women, who often find themselves unprepared and unknowledgeable. Jacobowitz, coauthor with Wulf Utian of Managing Your Menopause ( LJ 7/90), answers many of the questions compiled from her nationwide lecture tours and consumer education programs, providing reliable information on such issues as hot flashes, hormone replacement therapy (HRT), night sweats, mood swings, palpitations, and insomnia. Although menopause affects each woman differently, coping with the transition takes education and information. This book addresses those concerns and, read in conjunction with Gail Sheehy's The Silent Passage ( LJ 4/1/92), Germaine Greer's The Change: Women, Aging and the Menopause ( LJ 9/15/92), and Susan Lark's The Menopause Self Help Book (Celestial Arts, 1990), provides enormous help. Highly recommended.-- Janet M. Coggan, Univ. of Florida Libs., Gainesville Copyright 1992 Cahners Business Information.
