My Review:

When BESTCHCIKLIT contacted me regarding doing a review for this book, I was spectacle. Not because I didn't think I would enjoy it, but I have never done a review on a NON-FICTION, book and as this topic is one that I will hopefully be not experiencing for the next 20 (+) years. I was worried that I would not be able to relate to it and give the book its due credit

But alas as this is a real issue in women's health and as someone who has dedicated my life to helping others, I decided to give it a try. I figured even if I could not relate to the topic currently I thought maybe I would learn something to better help future patients who  may be having a difficult time dealing with menopause. 

But I have to admit that regardless of my initial doubts, I really enjoyed this book. They say that humor is sometimes the best way to deal with a difficult situation and this book was a great example of the healing powers of laughter. This book had me laughing from page one. It is decided in alphabetical order with different issues that arise during menopause. There are some amazing jokes and scenarios that give you a chuckle but at the same time, make you realize the real great issues that women face, that is much more than hot flashes and night sweats. 

Author Bio
photo (42)I have always written stories. My early stories were for children and sported silly titles like Humphrey and the Dustbin Cats, Hurrah for Hugo! and Noir and Blanc - Two Naughty Cats. They taught French language to younger children and were accompanied by a tape of French songs, mercifully not sung by me. I began writing for adults after my son left home. I converted his old bedroom into an office and set about writing humorous novels largely aimed at women of a certain age. The rest is history. Following much media success with Mini Skirts and Laughter Lines, I signed the Amanda Wilson novels with Thornberry Publishing. In 2012, I was lucky enough to be offered a three book deal with Safkhet Publishing. They have published How Not to Murder Your Grumpy and Just Add Spice, and released Grumpy Old Menopause, the sister book to How Not to Murder Your Grumpy, in December 2013. I now write full-time. When I am not working on a novel, I'll be writing articles for magazines such as Woman’s Weekly, or blog posts for The Huffington Post and Indies Unlimited. My books aim to encourage as many people as possible to age disgracefully and enjoy life. After all, life is short and 'he who laughs...lasts!'
