It’s time for a straight-talking discussion about menopause, and broadcaster Mariella Frostrup and health journalist Alice Smellie are here with all the information you need, plus a side order of humour. Looking at how menopause has been ignored by society and what it really encompasses and means, Frostrup and Mariella use direct experience, the latest science and cutting-edge research, and funny illustrations to present their ground-breaking, no-holds-barred guide to the menopause. Frostrup made the groundbreaking BBC1 documentary The Truth About the Menopause. Smellie is author of Cracking the Menopause: While Keeping Yourself Together. They speak to Dr Nighat Arif, whose forthcoming book is The Knowledge: Your Guide to Female Health.
