There are about three sentences of really good, enlightening information in this book which I had tried and failed to get out of multiple health care providers. That made The Sexy Years well worth the price. Most of it is fluff and nonsense, but kudos to Ms. Somers for making an effort when our misogynistic culture refuses to acknowledge that this is a problem that even needs to be addressed. I do disagree with her contention that women are fearful of menopause. Rather they are pissed-off and frustrated with a medical establishment that consistently ignores their needs. Criticisms of her efforts in this arena are mis-directed and need to be pointed instead at a system that fails to address women's healthcare. Hopefully, her work will lead more women to take an activist approach to taking care of their health and if their physician doesn't take them seriously that they will keep looking until they find one who will.

This is an interesting book. Suzanne provides a lot of useful advice and sensible solutions for a healthy lifestyle. One of the key factors in the book is the use of bio-identical hormone replacement (largely for females in premenopause or menopause). I am unsure whether this type of hormone replacement is all that she indicates that it is. It sounds impressive although getting proper dosing could prove somewhat involved with multiple blood tests, etc. Frankly, I like her book and think what she says is worth considering. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0609607219, Hardcover)

Menopause is a complicated business. Medical issues vary widely and treatment options seem endless--especially in the wake of bad news about hormone replacement. While The Sexy Years isn't meant to supply you with a specific program of daily supplements, Suzanne Somers does offer an excellent inspiration to march forth and take control of this stage of health. Much of the book covers her own experience of menopause, including some detail on her breast cancer ordeal. She advocates the use of natural, bioidentical hormonal replacement, available through a variety of creams and supplements--it's a rare page that doesn't gush about the power of these substances or raise negative issues about the use of synthetic hormones. Introductory medical information is included on how estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone work together to keep people healthy and active; the vocabulary is understandable and generally entertaining rather than overwhelming. She provides interviews with a variety of doctors and women in various stages of menopause. These will give women a good place to start with topics to address with their own medical providers. While a short index of doctors and compounding pharmacies is provided, most women will have to do their own research to find local natural hormone specialists. But if you're looking for a boost of courage to bring up these treatments with your doctor--or simply want to investigate more natural alternatives to the standard synthetics--this is a fine place to get started. --Jill Lightner

Getting older can be brutal-woman gain weight, lose their sex drive, experience hot flashes, suffer meroy loss, become short-tempered, find it difficult to sleep, and on and on.
