"Menopause and perimenopause are still a black box to most doctors, leaving patients exasperated as they grapple with symptoms ranging from hot flashes to insomnia and brain fog. As a leading neuroscientist and women's brain health specialist, Dr. Lisa Mosconi unravels the mystery by revealing how menopause doesn't just impact the ovaries-but it's a hormonal show in which the brain takes center stage. The decline of the hormone estrogen during menopause influences everything from body temperature to mood and memory, potentially paving the way for cognitive decline later in life. To conquer these successfully, Mosconi brings us the latest approaches-from cutting-edge hormone replacement therapies like "designer estrogens" to the role of hormonal contraception, and key lifestyle changes encompassing diet, exercise, self-care, and self-talk. Best of all, Mosconi dispels the myth that menopause signifies an end, demonstrating that it's actually a transition. Contrary to popular belief, if we know how to take care of ourselves during menopause, we can emerge with a renewed, enhanced brain-ushering in a meaningful and vibrant new chapter of life"--.

"It's one of the most important, least discussed events that happens in every body born with ovaries. It's a physiological and psychosocial event, a cultural construct, and a deeply personal experience all woven together in a jumbled knot. It's menopause. But why is there so much mystery surrounding the topic? Why is it so different for everyone? And more importantly, what do you need to feel prepared for such a major life transition? This guide makes the entire landscape of menopause-not just the physiology-more visible. If what you need is a level-headed friend to help walk you through the litany of fears to face, questions to ask, and practical decisions to make throughout the menopause transition, this is the book for you"--

By Munroe Bergdorf
"Transitioning is an alignment of the invisible and the physical. It is truth rising to the surface. It is one of the most fundamental aspects of the human condition--a part of our experience as a conscious being, no matter who we are. As time goes on, we all develop as people. None of us ever becomes someone else entirely--regardless of how we identify--but nor do we stay the same forever. We all transition. It's what binds us, not what separates us. In Transitional, activist and writer Munroe Bergdorf draws on her own experience and theory from key experts, change-makers and activists to reveal just how deeply ingrained transitioning is in human experience." --
