The Upgrade: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife and Beyond
Coming across Louann Brizendine’s book about menopause was a moment of sheer joy.
The Upgrade – which is exactly how I see menopause – links the physical metabolic changes that declining oestrogen brings, to the emotional changes that we can experience, and explains why the mature brain is so much better than what came before.
I highly recommend this uplifting and illuminating perspective on menopause.
