Dr. Nancy, I loved this book. It’s absolutely wonderful the way that you show women of all ages how they can regain their power and make the best possible journey as they grow older through life. I think that you give fantastic support and validation and great tools to deal with growing older. The research you did was fabulous. I didn’t know women in their 20s and 30s had the greatest fear of getting older, so it really applies to women of all ages. And of course I love the stories! So, thank you for doing such a great job in putting together a book that is an important book for our time. ~ Marci Shimoff, New York Times bestselling author of “Happy for No Reason.”
This inspiring book shows women the breadth of their choices and possibilities for endless personal growth. Women have a gift for personal honesty and for story telling and the two come together in this book to help us know each other, draw strength from one another and teach each other. There is a lot of wisdom in this book. It’s a tonic to read.” ~Pepper Schwartz, PhD, Professor of Sociology, University of Washington and author of Prime: Adventures and Advice about Sex, Love and the Sensual Years
Whether you are 29, 99, or someplace in between, you will find this touching, inspirational book to be a positive guide to living life to the fullest. This book is exactly what women at all stages of life need to reach their full potential. ~Candace Bahr and Ginita Wall, Co-founders, Women’s Institute for Financial Education (WIFE.org)
It’s interesting that women are often the hardest on other women, and that a lot of the hang ups women have about aging involve how they feel they will be perceived by other WOMEN, not men! We have got to stop looking at other women as competition, and help mentor and support each other. The authors give age-specific tasks to help embrace aging and to learn to value ourselves more. We are more than our physical appearance! Throughout the book, the importance of mentoring and being supportive of other women is key. A helpful guide for all women! ” ~Deborah Hill-Busselle, M.D.
