Women are now in menopause for 40% of their lives. It’s a natural and normal part of life. It’s not about getting old, it’s about growing up.

Sneaking this in before evangelists Malcolm Farry, Dave Cull, Jim Harland, Athol Stephens, and the likes of Terry Davies, start leading the way on men’s health by taking more doctors along to local Blokes’ Sheds – so in this er tight gap before they try “giving back to humanity”, listen to the audio, read the extract, email it, share it – be generous, buy the book for yourselves, your families, your women friends and men friends. Talk about it.
