Reviews and Articles for Sleep After Menopause
"The book is written in a straightforward, conversational manner. As I read it, I was reminded of the direct, informational style of conversation many healthcare providers use when explaining medical conditions and treatment options to their patients. Reading it is rather like attending an ideal office visit with a personable, knowledgeable, caring, and helpful doctor or other medical provider."
".... it may also be helpful to healthcare providers as a source of easily instituted, everyday advice."

"Dr. Sunseri's approach to sleep has helped countless numbers of my patients. Her advice has helped patients with long-standing sleep issues, as well as issues related to menopause. She uses a no-nonsense and evidence-based approach that really works. I am excited that her advice will now be able to be disseminated to those who are unable to meet her in person. I highly recommend this book."

"Great advice for post menopausal women!!! I'm now 71 and retired." "....when I was age 56-62, being awake for two hours, 2-4am, or 3-5 am, sometimes 2 or 3 nights in a week, which destroyed my ability to function at my full ability at work." "...I started my bio-identical HRT regimen, which I continue today." "...Then, shortly after being retired, I started experiencing waking and being unable to fall back to sleep for two hours, again." "...Your book helped me to understand the importance of being cool." "...I'm going to share the insights of your book with my sister, Kathleen, who is 10 years younger, and my book club and other friends, as the subject does pop up in girlfriend conversations."
