Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Dr Christiane Northrup is one of today's most trusted and visionary experts on every aspect of being a woman. In Mother-Daughter Wisdom she introduces an entirely new map of female development, including the 'five facets of feminine power' that range from the basics of physical care to the discovery of passion and purpose in life. This blueprint allows any woman - whether or not she has children - to repair the gaps in her own upbringing and create a better adult relationship with her mother. It is also invaluable guidance for mothers of young daughters. Drawing on patient case histories and revealing personal history, Dr Northrup discusses: Mother-daughter bonds; How this relationship affects our emotional and physical health; How to repair our relationships with our mothers; How to ensure a healthy future for our daughters and more.

Amazon.com Review:
It's a rare book that delivers so completely on such a broad promise. Mother-Daughter Wisdom is written to connect the dots between a number of separate parts: logical and emotional morality, physical and mental health, friends and family, and in an overarching sense, the relationship between being a woman's daughter and raising a daughter of your own.

Because of the scope of information presented, it can be tricky to pick up the book and look for quick guidance on a particular topic such as adolescent weight issues or childhood asthma; more use, and more pleasure, will be found if you add it to your permanent reference shelf to look through in stages. Author Dr. Christiane Northup (Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom) seamlessly blends personal stories with clear research in a way that creates a compelling read from start to finish, even if the specific topic isn't necessarily one that concerns you. Information is a welcome mix of old school medical advice and new school nutrition and stress relief. In Northup's world, whole foods and loving communication can play just as important roles as antibiotics.

The book is categorized somewhat loosely by age, beginning with pregnancy and labor, and continuing through infancy, childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. Each section is quite specifically tuned to relating to daughters: Mothers of sons will get some use out of sections on breastfeeding, vaccinations and the like, but emotional concerns and physical recommendations are tailor-made for women and girls, right down to the resource guide that ends the book. By itself, that resource guide is an excellent starting point for further reading, both online and in print. When added to the whole, it is just one more reason you'll reach for the book on a regular basis. --Jill Lightner
