    My low score today doesn t reflect this manuscript s quality it s actually a really lovely book, written in an engagingly poetic and confessional style but rather that the dust jacket makes this sound like a book of general thoughts about aging that are applicable to both genders, while the book itself makes it clear that Benjamin is 100 percent exclusively talking about the female phenomenon of menopause, even going so far as flat out stating in the introduction, I suppose men have anxieties ab [...]

    Coming up to your teenage years, the mother sits their daughter down to tell them about periods, School tell you about sex But no one sits you down and tells you about menopause and how to handle it You know it exists and that it is an ending of youth But will It be easy or hard and what do I expect as menopause comes up to slap me in the face So that is why when this book came into work I decided to read it I guess what I have learnt is that it is different for everyone no two woman are the sam [...]

    I actually read the paperback but that version isn t shown on GR My response to this book may be biased by my preference for a optimistic perspective the tone of the book is primarily downbeat It s one woman s experience of aging, and written when she was 49 That can be a rough time, and for her especially because of surgery that brought on menopause overnight, with severe symptoms However, I wish I could tell her that, for a majority of women, their spirits rise later in life Marina Benjamin i [...]

    The Prologue and Epilogue were prosaic and profound However, the individual chapters are a mix of reflection, scientific research and literary criticism It was an odd mix and I found myself skimming through many of the chapters It is a topic that desperately needs reflection beyond just the physical changes of the female body Middlepause disappointedly missed the mark.

    Thought provoking sometimes I adored and sometimes I chaffed I am not sure I subscribe to the idea that there are two parts of life that you have to live differently I instead liked her idea of the succession of our many selves The organization, chapter titles and content, were elegant part science survey, part book report, part journal The writing is quite beautiful and she seems like an older friend a decade beyond me that I would like to have Her description of her relationships, especially w [...]

    Turning fifty seems monumental It is a turning point, a redefining Marina Benjamin has captured so well this transitional, or as she terms it, liminal state In her personal reflections, the way she communicates the feelings of this time are at once beautifully and bitterly apt.Though her experience is not exactly mine, the similarities and the feeling of solidarity I found in this slim book are breathtaking The Middlepause explores many facets of this time, navigating the changing parent child [...]

    Suddenly finding yourself experiencing perimenopausal symptoms and not knowing what to do with them can be rather startling if not frightening at times.Considering how much medical knowledge we have about pretty much every other aspect of our physical lives, I am surprised by how much myth and mystery still surrounds menopause and it s various stages.Fortunately, the baby boomers have never done anything quietly or on the sly, which is good for us Gen X er s that follow along As the boomers have [...]

    A deeply personal book on turning 50 and the journey of aging for women Marina Benjamin explores Menopause and the myths and truths behind treatments and the way different people deal with a factual part of getting older.

    I am myself just short of the milestone of turning 50, not yet experiencing menopause, but perhaps seeing some early signs of it So I was interested to read a personal account of another woman reaching, and passing, those milestones The Middlepause is a personal account, and doesn t pretend to be a medical tract, nor to have answers for everything It includes some very interesting history about the origins of HRT therapy, and a personal account of Benjamin s experiences with it This is a pretty [...]

    I won a copy of this on Good Reads.Middlepause is the perfect name for this period of time in a woman s life.I often get frustrated when the wrong reference is made between peri menopause and menopause Let s educate ourselves or no one else will do it for us.Having 5 older sisters and already reaching menopause myself, I never expected what s even next to come Bladder slings, falling uterus Can t wait If I would have known the things my body was going to go through, I would have said no thanks A [...]

    This book was helpful in knowing that I m not alone and my experiences are not unique It gives me a good perspective moving forward to do what I really want to do but not get hung up on things I cannot change.

    I really enjoyed this gave me some perspective on what lies ahead and empathise with some loved ones.

    I ve been percolating a novel about a middle aged woman, and I cannot tell you how helpful this book was in learning some key details about what it s like to be of a certain age On the other hand, this book also creeped me the hell out by revealing all sorts of things my body is not looking forward to going though in the next 10 to 20 years It was a very different type of memoir, one very researched based and almost academic, but personal to fill in gaps potentially created by sterility Deeply f [...]
