Stephanie Weiss of The Washington Post picked up a copy of the first edition of The Midlife Bible: A Woman’s Survival Guide along with two other books on menopause and compared them for an article. She wrote: “Michael Goodman (Good Man!), an amalgam of Marcus Welby, Monk, and the Horse Whisperer… understands the complex interaction of midlife symptoms… Of (all the books I reviewed), The Midlife Bible is the cheapest, shortest, and the best. I give it an A.”
Here now is the second A+ edition of The Midlife Bible, revised and including the latest information on Progesterone. Is it unsafe at any speed?”
After 35 years listening to women, Dr. Goodman covers every topic relevant to a woman’s menopausal concerns: PMS, bleeding problems, bone density, pelvic support issues, fatigue syndromes, irritable bowel, insomnia, psychological “blahs,” and the dilemma of childlessness at midlife. It includes honest information about breast cancer and an open discussion about sexuality. Dr. Goodman explains and offers relief from the “perimenopausal crazies,” and most importantly, simplifies the hormone replacement therapy decision with a full discussion of prescription hormones, bioidenticals and compounded preparations, and non-hormonal alternatives.
His companion book,MEN-opause: The Book for Men, is being released simultaneously with The Midlife Bible. This “His and Hers” set will guide couples through these temporarily troubled waters toward upcoming decades of renewed closeness, health, and enjoyment.
“Michael Goodman (Good Man!), an amalgam of Marcus Welby, Monk, and the Horse Whisperer… understands the complex interaction of midlife symptoms. Goodman’s analysis is clear, his treatment suggestions exacting. Each chapter ends with a case study about a real woman going through menopause. I learned more from this book’s two pages on menstrual migraine than I have in discussions with half a dozen doctors over the years. There is straightforward information…. Of [all the books I reviewed], The Midlife Bible is the cheapest, shortest, and the best. I give it an A.” —Stephanie Weiss, The Washington Pos
“Dr. Goodman’s honest, comprehensive look at the healthcare options available will save you time, energy, and money. All that, and it’s actually an enjoyable read! He writes with a baby-boomer’s sensibility that is honest, funny, and informative. You will wish he was your doctor and want to hang out with him at the same time!” — Nancy Alspaugh and Marilyn Kentz, Authors, Fearless Women and Not your Mother’s Midlife: A Ten-step Guide to Fearless Aging
“Ladies, share this book with your husband, your friends, and especially your doctor! Dr. Michael Goodman has done a wonderful job in transforming hormone havoc….” — Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., Author, Before the Change and The Fat Flush Plan
“Dr. Goodman does an excellent job of combining Western and complementary medical approaches in order to help guide women through this sometimes difficult time of life. Avoiding any medical ‘agenda’, he explains what is known, and not known, and offers a healthy dose of good sense. This book is well written, easy to understand, and will be an excellent resource for women approaching, or in the midst of, midlife.” — William H. Parker, M.D., Author, The Incontinence Solution and A Gynecologist’s Second Opinion
