Every menopause has its own story. It's time we listened to them. The Big M - not to mention the Big Peri-M - is a subject reduced to whispers or the cheap laughs of a hot flush. No one quite tells you the truth. No one prepares you for it. But now that silence is lifting. So, let's be bold and wise; let's overshare. Let's rejoice as we step free of the menopausal closet. The menopause is not one story, but many and diverse . . . and, whatever your experience, you are not alone. Measured, rebellious, fierce and upfront, each of STILL HOT!'s 42 voices speaks straight from the heart.
STILL HOT! is a collection of surprising, affecting, funny and emotional stories about the Big M (and the equally big Peri-M too). Some lucky women experience very few symptoms, but for others it's an entirely different journey . . . and an awareness of those differences can help make each individual reality so much more liveable. Now forty-two women tell it like it really is, as they share their very personal stories of the menopause. There's no such thing as oversharing here. From workplace struggles to marital strife, from life-changing decisions to love, sex and everything in between, nothing is off-limits in this brilliant collection. It's a must-read for all women - and for anyone who shares their lives. With contributions from a fantastic range of celebrities and household names - many opening up about their experiences for the first time - this is a candid and extraordinary collection of real-life stories, giving voice to women from all walks of life. Say goodbye to silence, secrecy and shame - as you laugh, cry, empathise and appreciate the menopause in a whole new light.
