This book ‘Manboobs and Hair A seriously irreverent look at Male Menopause (andropause) was written by me so that men going through this important stage of life both physically and mentally, could understand what was happening to them.
The writing of the book came about when I was told by a group of ladies that I must be going through Male Menopause because of the way I had written their parts for a murder mystery play.
Perplexed at what they said I decided to delve into the subject and soon discovered that it actually was a period of life that men go through.
This life journey can be very difficult and challenging, but also very funny and rewarding.
I have written the book in plain English as my research found that most material written on the subject was for academic use and difficult for most men to read. Most did not cover day to day issues that men experienced such as ‘Fear of Losing your Job’ or ‘Sea-changes or Tree-changes’, ‘Divorce and separation’ or Lifestyle Changes’.
As I said the journey has been very rewarding – not only have I learn about myself, but have met many men of my age that have experienced similar problems both emotionally and physically as they go through this interesting change of life.
There are over 100 short stories, cartoon sketches and quotes, all of which will answer most of your questions in a very practical manner. I am not a medical practitioner, however am experiencing as an life as a Andropausal man..
The book has been divided into easy to read sections, ‘Mens Health’, ‘Lifestyle’, ‘Family Relationships’, Wit and Humour’.
