In Is it me or it hot in here? Jenni Murray, one of Britain’s most popular journalists and broadcasters, addresses the menopause. She looks at what the menopause is – its symptoms and how it affects overall health. She also looks at the psychological and social implications. There is an overview of the latest research on HRT – its benefits and drawbacks – and the new work which is being done on various ‘alternative’ therapies. She includes discussions on sex life, social life, face-lifts (or otherwise), exercise (or otherwise), keeping your figure and discovering one’s place in life as a middle aged woman in a feminist era. The section on rethinking the menopause looks at changing attitudes and how to cope with post-menopausal life, offering a new agenda for post-menopausal women. Throughout, the tone is inquiring but accessible, making it one of the most appealing books on the menopause written to date.
