The 2nd Half of Your Life


The Second Half of Your Life: Released to coincide with the new mass market paperback edition. This new imprint has been completely revised and updated with new chapters added.
The Second Half of Your Life has been heralded as ‘one of the most important women’s books for a decade’, ‘groundbreaking’, ‘inspirational’ and ‘the manual for women in the second half of their life’. The Second Half of Your Life will inspire women to rethink what it means to grow older.
Based on the science of hormones, her extensive research and interviews, Jill Shaw Ruddock provides prescriptive advice on how to use the biological changes that occur around menopause to help make the second half of life, the best half. Providing practical hands-on advice on how to harness the power of the oestrogen-free mind to make the most of new opportunities, Ruddock covers everything from dating to divorce, exercise to eating, the libido to looking your best and money to the mind.

‘A girlfriend’s guide to menopause and ageing. Factually, you’re in a safe pair of hands, but best of all you feel supported and understood. Funny, engaging and accessible.’ — Dr Miriam Stoppard, Doctor and Writer
