Gail Sheehy, the author of eleven hooks including her most recent work, New Passages: Mapping Your Life Across Time, is best known for her landmark work, Passages, named in a 1991 Library of Congress survey among the top ten books that have most influenced people's lives. In "The Silent Passage" I saw myself and the conundrums I had faced over the past two years since I reached menopause. I had a relatively symptom free perimenopause, so I thought I was done and free to live my life as a "mature" woman.

  • I read this because a relative was reading the younger woman's version, "Passages". Well-written, well researched, and compelling, I repeatedly found myself pictured in the pages. In "The Silent Passage" I saw myself and the conundrums I had faced over the past two years since I reached menopause. I had a relatively symptom free perimenopause, so I thought I was done and free to live my life as a "mature" woman. No. I've spent two years feeling like I was losing my mind. The fogginess and the miasma that I blamed on my missing thyroid were instead due to wildly fluctuating hormones. I've started HRT after conferring with four separate physicians, and plan to continue into the future. This book saved my life!

  • I think this is one of the best books for women going through menopause that I have ever read. It is not a remedies book, but rather what is going on in our minds, bodies and spirits as changes continually come into our bodies. It looks at the years both before and after menopause as well, believing that signs of menopause come much earlier in our lives than we notice, and continue much later. I would often be reading it in bed, and remark to my husband that he had to "listen to this". Very enlightening.

  • I bought this book for a reading group so didn't get to it right away. When I did read it, I realize that I've been sent a version from 1998 so no updated information about hormone replacement therapy or treatment not allergies, no modern updates regarding any medical advances or changes in thinking about how best to manage menopause. I'm 1998 version versus 2010 is a huge difference. I ordered the sixth addition and got the fifth. With some books, the addition might not be a big deal, but with this one it is. Very disappointed.

  • Bought it for my wife, she found it helpful. I actually read some and can say that Sheehy is a very conversational, common sense, person that isn't afraid to dispense direct talk. I found her tone to be very reassuring and encouraging while at the same time, challenging.

  • I was sent the 1998 mass market paperback edition published by Pocket Books. Definitely not what is advertised. The print is worse than anything I’ve ever seen in a book. Very poor print quality. I am definitely returning it.

  • Chapters are short and easy to read. This book deals not only with the technical aspects that most books do, but primarily with particular women's experiences with those various aspects--especially their feelings. This is what is left out of most of the other books. I recommend this book together with a more techinical book. But if you can only buy one book, buy this one instead. The main thing this book left me with was a feeling that instead of menopause being something that will just happen to me, there are a lot of things I can do, in a proactive sense, to manage the menopause. This is the most positive book I have seen on the subject, and helps me decide about all the questions to discuss with my doctor. Without reading this book, instead of being ready with a list of questions for my doctor, I would have passively listened to whatever he said, and thought that was it.

  • Lots of info that nobody ever told us about menopause. A bit dry to read, but has lots of important things that help you know you're not crazy. Good to share with a friend, when we're done.

  • This is the best book any woman can read that is near or going through menopause. I recommend all women read this book!
