Summary:

A groundbreaking guide for women of all ages that shows their natural moodiness is a strength, not a weakness
 
As women, we learn from an early age that our moods are a problem, an annoyance to be stuffed away. But our bodies are wiser than we imagine. Moods are a finely tuned feedback system that allows us to be more empathic, intuitive, and aware of our own capabilities. If we deny our emotionality, we deny the breadth of our talents.
 
Yet millions of American women are medicating away their emotions with psychiatric drugs whose effects are more far-reaching than most of us realize. And even if we don’t pop a pill, women everywhere are numbing their emotions with food, alcohol, and a host of addictive behaviors that deny the wisdom of our bodies and keep us from addressing the real issues we face.
 
Psychiatrist Julie Holland knows there is a better way. In Moody Bitches, she shares insider information about the drugs we’re being offered and the direct link between food and mood, and she offers practical advice on sex, exercise, and sleep strategies, as well as some surprisingly effective natural therapies. In the tradition of Our Bodies, Our Selves, this groundbreaking guide will forge a much needed new path in women’s health—and offer women invaluable information on how to live better, and be more balanced, at every stage of life.

    I had mixed reactions to this book. I really liked the parts that were based on Holland's personal experience and stories from her patients. I strongly disliked the encyclopedia-like scientific chapters that seemed like a hodge-podge of factoids. These factoids often contradicted one another making Holland's "recommendations" about how to live a healthy lifestyle very unclear. Holland is clearly not a neuroscientist and tries to oversell the neuroscience that is known so far. All in all, I would recommend this book with the caveat to skip all of the pseudo-sciency chapters and not take her detailed advice about how to eat / sleep / exercise/ etc.
