‘The most positive advice on menopausal life you will ever read’ Daily Mirror

‘This is the book that encourages you to get off your oestrogen free backside and grab life with both hands’ The FT

‘…(Ruddock) has written a ground-breaking book. Hugely liberating, empowering and transforming’ The Independent on Sunday

The Second Half of Your Life has been heralded as ‘one of the most important women’s books for a decade’ and ‘the manual for women in the second half of their life’. First published in 2011, and revised and updated in 2015, The Second Half of Your Life is one of the first books written on the hormonal changes around menopause as a positive springboard to the rest of a woman’s life. Based on the science of hormones, Jill Ruddock provides advice to create a second life of limitless possibilities.

All proceeds from this book go to The Second Half Foundation. The Second Half Foundation funds The Second Half Centre (created and opened in 2012) in the NHS St Charles in North Kensington, a place where both men and women can go and live Jill’s ‘Five A Day’, the five components of successful ageing as written in her book.
