Through interviews with world-renowned professionals in the field and retellings of real-life experiences, HOT! The Grown-up Guide to Midlife aims to provide an easy-to-follow guide through what should be a celebrated rite of passage.

"It’s about becoming invisible, about hot flushes at totally inappropriate moments, about not sleeping, about inexplicable cake cravings, about drinking barrels of bubbly, about HRT or not, about friends and lovers and loss and time ... all of it," says Suzy Brokensha, Fairlady and Hot! editor. 

"It’s honest, it’s funny, it’s full of good information: it’s basically the conversation that all of us need to have with each other," adds Brokensha.

Hot! The Grown-up's Guide to Midlife is now available at leading retailers.
