Product Details


“In The Hormone Decision, Wall Street Journal columnist Tara Parker-Pope uses her award-winning reporting on hormone replacement therapy to clarify the treatment’s risks and benefits. Both, she argues, have been misrepresented by scientists and the media. Like the author of classic women’s health books before her, Parker-Pope trusts that smart women, armed with the facts, can make good decisions for themselves.” —More Magazine

“All women will ultimately pass through the menopause transition. Many will be faced with the dilemma of whether to take some form of hormonal therapy. The frightening or confusing messages presented by much of the media do not help, and there are few reliable sources on the internet that are not associated with selling a silver bullet. Fortunately, award winning journalist Tara Parker-Pope has come to the rescue. There is no other book as detailed, accurate and reliable as this, and she has conferred with the best research brains in the area of menopausal hormone therapy to make life easier for women as they traverse the menopause. Beyond that this enlightening book, which belongs on the shelves of both providers and consumers of health care, is a really good read!” —Wulf H. Utian, M.D., PhD., Executive director, The North American Menopause Society

The Hormone Decision arrives just in time to help the millions of women entering perimenopause choose how to navigate the often stormy waters of their body’s transitional years. Tara Parker-Pope gives the gift of easy, accessible information to women eager to learn how to make the right choice for optimal mental and physical wellness.” —Pam Peeke MD, MPH, FACP, Author of the New York Times bestseller Body for Life for Women

“Tara Parker-Pope is well known for the balanced and clear prospective that she brings to the topic of menopause in her Wall Street Journal articles. This book similarly provides a comprehensive and accurate explanation of the subject. Tara has summarized and accurately interpreted a massive body of scientific literature on hormone therapy, distilling it into an enjoyable and understandable manuscript. It is essential reading for any woman entering the menopause. I recommend it to all of my menopausal patients.” —Hugh S. Taylor, M.D., Associate Professor, Director Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Yale University School of Medicine

“A smart woman’s guide to the medical minefield of menopause, writtin in Tara Parker- Pope’s straight-talk, no-spin style. At last, the truth that women have been waiting for!” —Mary Lou Quinlan, Author and CEO, Just Ask a Woman
