“Grown Woman Talk: Your Guide to Getting and Staying Healthy” by Dr. Sharon Malone is a practical guide to aging and health for women who have felt ignored or marginalized by the medical profession.

The book is part medical handbook, part memoir, and part sister-girl cheerleader, filled with useful resources and real-life stories of victory and defeat. It not only highlights the current data around women’s health issues, but it also places that data in a helpful context.

Dr. Malone details how to live better, age better, and get better medical treatment, especially when it’s most needed. The book is designed to show women that they already have the power—they need only to increase their capacity and willingness to use it.

Most importantly, “Grown Woman Talk” seeks to eradicate the silence that surrounds women’s health by facilitating discussion between women of all ages and encouraging more accurate and productive medical insights. It is Dr. Sharon’s belief that giving women more agency can, literally, give them life.

With a combination of medical expertise, up-to-date science, and lived experience, “Grown Woman Talk” addresses the most common conditions women over forty deal with. And it helps women, especially Black women, identify the power they have and how to use it to chart a path to improve their health outcomes and thrive.
