    "Hot flashes literally create enlightenment. I don't mean this in a hippies woo-woo way. Scientifically, if you compare the pulse and EKG and other data of a person meditating in or near a state of nirvana, you will find it is similar to the condition a woman is in during a hot flash.'', says Ms. Susun Weed and I believe her, because difficult as life may seem during this time, the menopausal years are not so unbearable, especially with the right attitude. Each time I think I do not need this little book anymore, I read a passage or two, and am struck by how it relates to me still. Her approach to menopause makes more sense to me than many other books out there on the subject, and her wisdom allows me to move through this change with a little less intensity.

    An excellent, highly recommended book. I use it already, even though I am not yet experiencing menopause.

    Susan Weed's Menopausal Years is by far the best book of its kind!It is organized in 3 chapters, the years before, during and after menopause; what symptoms women might experience. Each symptom is orderly detailed in seven steps the wise woman can take, from least invasive to most invasive, including 1) collect information, 2) engage the energy, 3) nourish and tonify, 4) stimulate and sedate, 5) use drugs, and 6) break and enter. Susan Weed is brilliant and her books are a tremendously valuable resource!

    Overall good reference book for pre and postmenopausal women. Lists of useful herbs...not too sure about the recommendations of soy and dairy although I understand calcium is important. Also the book is anti-hormone replacement therapy and anti-birth control pill after the age of 40 with not much explanation.

    Overall, this is a great book. I learned more about Menopause from this book than any other I have read. It is hard to know what is normal and what isn't. I made a decision this past fall to end birth control pills. I wasn't sure what to expect and this book really helps. I will keep it close by for reference.

    This is a quirky book. Outside my box for sure. Repellant and intriguing. Perhaps a couple of worthy take-aways.

    A couple months ago, I was having a conversation with my mother. I mentioned some of the health issues I was having. She looked at me, leaned over, and then in a hushed voiced said that she hated to break it to me but I was having pre-menopausal symptoms. How could this be happening to me? I'm not old. I'm not ready to get facial hair, brittle bones, and happily retire with my cats. It was then that I remembered Susun and her Wise Woman series of books. I have read several of her books and absolutely adored them. Susun has a way of making sense of disease, as a normal part of our spiritual and psychological growth. Without a doubt New Menopausal Years has armed me with information and a whole new perspective. My life doesn't have to include hormone injections, crazy mood swings, or adverse signs of aging. I now see this new phase of my life as an opportunity to take better care of myself and focus on the things I want to do with my life.

    Shirley recommended this book to me about a year ago. After I got it from the library, I quickly scanned it and found it's layout effective for good reference on how to approach all the different and oh so lovely attributes of peri-menopause. However, I didn't want to put any more ideas into my head/body about other tricks it could be trying out so, I just found Susun's text on thyroids that reinforced what I had already been telling myself and closed the book. That was all I needed to give me strength to carry on. The book went back to the library and I've recommended it to other friends my age when they start to sound like they could benefit from reading about alternative approaches to keeping one's good health.

    I read this book very slowly, as you can see, it took me a year or so to complete. I read a couple of pages every time I picked it up. I am not big into finding the different herbs and teas that she recommends, but I love how she talks about the Wise Woman talking to me as a wise woman to be. And celebrating Menopause and just rolling with the punches. (Something that I am not generally so good at doing.)At the end of the day though, it is a good, educational book, that I do recommend for anyone wanting to get a different perspective. (That being said, I think if I had to choose one of two books, I would still put The Wisdom of Menopause at the top of my list.)Cheers.

    I think things are changing for me already, and I figured I would start reading up on it before I'm faced with too many symptoms. As always Susun Weed is a treasure trove of knowledge and sage wisdom. I love that this book is like the wise village crone or elder handing down her wisdom to the new crone. I am going to start implementing some of the suggestions into my daily routine now to make my journey to wise woman a bit smoother!Thank you Susun Weed!

    Marvelous book of plant-based health for mid-life women. I've especially benefited from Susun Weed's dried herb infusions and tincture recommendations. I appreciated her thoughts on grieving, the Crone's Year Away, and returning to community. Would have given it a 5-star rating except for the sometimes racist asides and slick belief-system jabs. They didn't make me appreciate anything except clear thinking.

    Just when I need a guidebook to some of this new stuff my body's dishing out, along comes this book -- and in an updated version, no less. I've looked at a couple other books on menopause, but this one's the one I plan to keep on hand as a ready reference. Need a grandma who knows her stuff to see you through The Change? Here she is.

    A wealth of herbal suggestions for a variety of symptoms. Very interesting and enlightening...but I feel unqualified to self perscribe quantity, frequency, and duration of herbal supplementation without the guidance of a qualified herbalist. At least now as I seek the assistance of an herbalist I will go into the appointment with some knowledge so that I can self-advocate.

    A good antidote to traditional Western guidebooks on menopause. Incorporates story-telling, traditional wisdoms to provide alternative way of looking at menopause. Read this book together with Christine Northrup's menopause book to cultivate a whole different mindset on this time of life.

    A friend, wise and older than me, loaned me this book. It was a balm to my soul and mind as I read about the complexities of menopause. I felt "not crazy" and validated for much of what I was feeling and experiencing in my body and emotions.

    Some wackiness but mostly goodness. Useful information if you can sort out the judgmental and cuckoo from the out-there. Reassuring, empowering, and inspiring. May check out from the library again or even buy.
