A fabulously confessional romp through the menopause; D'Souza tells us what it was like for her, and what it will be like for you
'The final step to equality has to be turning the menopause into a topic we can happily discuss, and even celebrate. In these pages, Christa D'Souza puts us firmly on that path.' - MARIELLA FROSTRUP 'Been there... survived that... but how I wish I'd had this menopause tour guide to get me through. Brilliant and beautifully written.' - CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR 'Warm, witty and wise. No woman - or man, come to that - should be without this book.' - CRESSIDA CONNOLLY There has never been a better time to be a menopausal woman. Technology is such that 60 really is the new 40 (or even 35). But, for Christa D'Souza, some nagging questions remain... What is the point of us now that we are officially biologically irrelevant? Are hormones safe, even if you've had cancer? Is there a cut-off point for plaits? In this fabulously confessional romp through the menopause, D'Souza tells us what it was like for her, and what it will be like for you. She meets a bunch of menopausal nuns in San Francisco, goes hunter-gathering with the Hadza tribe in Tanzania, interviews experts around the world to get the latest science... and discovers along the way some surprising silver linings to this key milestone of maturity. Menopause: The True Story is a treat of a book - liberating, empowering and unexpectedly moving in its truth-telling. *Menopause: The True Story is an updated edition of The Hot Topic, first published in 2016*
