The silent passage : menopause by Gail Sheehy( Book )

74 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 12 languages and held by 3,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All women face menopause, but, as Gail Sheehy so compellingly reveals in interviews with women from a broad spectrum of economic, ethnic, and racial backgrounds, the passage is seldom easy. Distracting symptoms, confusing medical advice, unsympathetic reactions from loved ones, and the scornful attitudes of society at large often make menopause a lonely and emotionally draining experience." "In this groundbreaking book, Sheehy sets out to erase the stigma of menopause and "render normalcy to a normal physical process." She writes frankly about her own experiences and uncovers the frustrations of other women who have long suffered in silence. She brings together the most current information from the United States and abroad and assesses women's options and risks. This is a book of candor and hope that places menopause within the cycle of life as "the gateway to a second adulthood."" "When portions of this book first appeared in Vanity Fair, the response was immediate and electrifying. For everyone who has experienced menopause--and the millions of women of the baby-boom generation who will soon face it--The Silent Passage is sure to become a touchstone."--Jacket

16 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No one really expects it, but at some time or another, just about everyone has been--or will be--responsible for giving care, for a sustained period, to someone close to them. Gail Sheehy, who has chronicled every major turning point for twentieth-century Americans, as well as reported on everything from politics to sexuality, knows firsthand the trials, fears, and rare joys of caregiving. Here, she takes you by the hand and shows you that you will get through this, and you will do the right things. Sheehy identifies eight crucial stages of caregiving and offers insight for successfully navigating each one. Most important, however, she points out that you don't have to be alone in this process. This book can help turn a stressful, life-altering situation into a journey that can be safely navigated and from which everyone can benefit.--From publisher description

Sex and the seasoned woman : pursuing the passionate life by Gail Sheehy( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Hebrew and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this groundbreaking work, cultural observer Sheehy reveals a hidden phenomenon--increased vitality in women's sex and love lives after fifty. This is a new universe of passionate, liberated women--married and single--who are unwilling to settle for the stereotypical roles of middle age and are now realizing they don't have to. As life spans grow longer and as societal constraints continue to loosen, older women--free of the exhausting demands of young children, needy husbands, and demanding careers--find themselves ready to pursue the passionate life. They embrace their "second adulthood" as a period of reawakening. Combining interviews and research, this book gives voice to more than a hundred colorful women, whose stories tell of wives who reinvigorate their marriages after their children leave the nest, as well as divorced, widowed, and long-single women who find new dreams and new loves.--From publisher description

Hustling: prostitution in our wide open society by Gail Sheehy( Book )

11 editions published between 1971 and 1977 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The netherworld of prostitution has never before been so deeply explored or vividly portrayed as in this book. Sheehy presents a realistic portrait of a fierce new breed of woman on the American scene. "The subculture of prostitution was the place to pick up early warning signals of how women in 'straight' society would begin to use their sex--and their specific sexual advantage--to push against our social boundaries. Violent women are part of a much larger cultural shift. In contemporary America as it undergoes a slow earthquake of gender, we can see the awakening assertiveness of women most starkly at the farthest distance from the conventional center--in the netherworld." Hustling follows the class ladder of the vocation, from street hooker to independent call girl to the courtesan who plays not only for wealth but for social position. It also reveals who makes the profits: the pimps and pornographers, the lawyers and politicians, the Mafia--and the landlords, some of the largest taxpaying property owners in the nation.--From publisher description
Younger next year for women : live strong, fit, and sexy -- until you're 80 and beyond by Chris Crowley( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To mark the 15th anniversary of the bestselling series, Younger Next Yearfor Women now includes two new chapters on the link between physical exercise and brain health. Their message is straightforward: A program of consistent exercise and eating right not only helps us physically but improves memory, cognition, mood, and more. Which makes the promise of Younger Next Year for Women even more urgent than ever-the American population is getting older, living longer than ever, and wanting to stay strong, fit, sexy, and smart. This bestselling book shows us how to turn back our biological clocks-how to put off 70% of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance), eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury, and now, become 10% smarter. The key is found in Harry's Rules, the linchpin of the Younger Next Year Philosophy: Exercise six days a week. Don't eat crap. Connect and commit to others. There are seven rules altogether, based on cell physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work-and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness, gives the just-as-essential motivation. And in the two new chapters, prominent neurologist Allan Hamilton explains how the program directly affects our brains-all the way down to the cellular level-while Crowley, in his inimitable voice, gives the personal side of the story. This book also includes important information on menopause, and includes an introduction by Gail Sheehy. The research is proving every day how and why Harry's simple but life-changing rules work, improving the quality of our lives, physically and mentally. With an updated look, and new chapters specifically addressing brain health, Younger Next Year for Women is the essential read for any woman fifty and over
