Sometimes the best way to deal with a serious issue is to make light of it. That’s exactly what Carol E. Wyer has done in Grump Old Menopause.
What happens when everything from puberty to menopause is late? Why, you make a joke of it. Wyer covers the bane of a woman’s existence – menopause – from A to Z (with detours away from O, Q, and U) with her signature brand of humor. This book has puns aplenty, and jokes about the stress associated with the ‘change.’ At the same time she offers a few nuggets of advice that I, as a man, can only assume are valid.
You don’t have to be a woman to appreciate this book. In fact, if you’re a married man, it could be considered a survival manual. However you approach it, it’s a thoroughly entertaining read – as are all of Wyer’s books. Easiest five stars this month!
