A fact-filled conversation starter on menopause by comedian and health campaigner Jean Kittson.

When Jean Kittson hit menopause, she was amazed at what she didn't know. Given that 1.5 million Australian women are menopausal at any one time, why, she wondered, was menopause so little discussed and then only in hushed tones?

So Jean set out to write the sort of book she felt she needed to read: 'An easy-to-read book full of useful information that didn't make you want to put on an old chenille dressing-gown and a pair of comfortable slippers and throw yourself under a marching band.'

You're Still Hot to Me is a chatty - sometimes robust - conversation between women and with some of Australia's top experts. Discover how to recognise symptoms (would you like hot flushes with that chocolate?), get the medical attention you deserve, and the lowdown on which treatments really work. You will learn about combining menopause with work, sex and parenting, and how to emerge at the other end still talking to those you love.

Candid and frequently hilarious, this is your starter kit on how to cheerfully embrace and confidently manage this momentous time of life.

"It's just fabulous!!! Informative, accurate (a nice change from lots of stuff written about menopause), funny and just so accessible. I love it and finally have the definitive book to recommend to my patients." - Dr Penny Adams, GP and advocate for women's health.
