The Midlife Bible – A Woman's Survival Guide
All New 2nd Edition By Michael Goodman, M.D.
published in 2004 and newly updated for 2007, this very useful and eminently
readable edition comes from the insight and knowledge of a communicator
with 35 years experience in the practice in obstetrics, gynecology and
perimenopausal medicine. It comes from the author’s working relationship
with “Western Medicine” and alternative approaches and a deep
respect for the individual’s intelligence, autonomy, and right to
fashion her own therapy.
“The Midlife Bible” is filled with positive
energy and helpful solutions for everyone. There are no “rights
or wrongs” in this easily readable little text; only the pragmatic
philosophy that there is a solution – a “correct fit”
It is more complete and up-to-date than any other lay edition available,
covering not only perimenopause, menopause and hormones, but also PMS,
bleeding problems, and all available alternative therapies. It fully covers
all of the benefits and risks of hormone therapy, new data showing the
positive effects of hormone therapy, and also explores new information
on pros and cons of progesterone. It offers honest information about breast
cancer, and includes an open discussion of sexuality and midlife enjoyment,
bone density, pelvic support issues, fatigue syndromes and the dilemma
of childlessness at midlife. It acknowledges the many different situations
of midlife and acts as a guide for individualized decision making. “The
Midlife Bible” empowers women in dealing with the “managed
care maze” and concludes with an appealing chapter on what’s
“new and juicy” on the medical horizon.
Dr. Goodman is an expert in listening to women and from
this experience and expertise has fashioned a very useful, very readable,
and very complete little gem.
What the Reviews are saying:
"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 Post
Dr. Goodman"Dr. Goodman has done every midlife woman
a favor in writing this book. His honest, comprehensive look at the health
care options available will save you time, energy and money. All of that
and it's actually an enjoyable read! Dr. Goodman writes with a baby boomer's
sensibility that is honest, funny and informative. You'll wish he was
your doctor and want to hang out with him at the same time!"
— Nancy Alspaugh and Marilyn Kentz authors of "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...from PMS, Perimenopause,
Menopause and beyond...into an empowering and healing experience. The
Midlife Bible really deserves a place on everybody's book shelf and library
in the country."
— Ann Louise Gittleman author of "Before the Change" and
"The Fat Flush Plan"
"Michael P. Goodman is a medical doctor with over 33
years experience... The Midlife Bible covers what may seem to be (especially
to women dealing with this) a plethora of conditions women experience
during midlife. Dr. Goodman offers alternative approaches and just plain
old common sense advice... telling women of this age, "you are not
alone." The cartoons interspersed throughout the book are not only
humorous but sensitive to women... This is one book that would make a
valuable addition to any family's home, to be read and discussed not only
by women with their medical practitioners, but with their husbands or
important others, understanding what is going on with their bodies and
becoming more aware of what is available to them in terms of treatment."
— Midwest Book Review
"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, MD author of "The Incontinence Solution"
and "A Gynecologist's Second Opinion"
