The ages from 40 to 65 are a stage in women's lives that medical literature does not often focus on. This book groups the perimenopausal years together in a way that makes clinical sense, and it covers a wide variety of the healthcare issues facing the carers these women will encounter. The book is timely, as this year the oldest women of the baby boomer generation turn 59 and the youngest turn 40.
