Award-Winning Where Did My Wife Go? Helps Men Save Their Marriages and Relationships In Spite Of Menopause, Mid-Life Crises and Empty Nest Syndrome
Author Jim Vigue's mailbox is regularly stuffed with thank-you messages from both men and women because his new book is helping marriages across the nation by offering practical ways to navigate the choppy waters of women's midlife transitions.
Vigue was recently named a medal winner of an IPPY Award from the Independent Publisher Book Awards for exhibiting the courage, innovation, and creativity to bring about change. A total of 4,090 entries were submitted throughout the United States, Canada and 12 English-speaking countries overseas. The Awards Committee cited Vigue's book as a superb example of someone's tackling an important subject that most authors would avoid.
"This award is very well deserved as this book is a remarkably sensitive explanation of this incredibly complex, but common and emotionally dangerous, life transition that menopause and midlife crises represent," said Lars Boman, MD, Diplomat of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine
