Baby boomers are turning 65 at the rate of 12,000 a day. This is the ultimate guide filled with positive and practical advice for women for the second half of life. Here is everything boomers need to know about aging, but never thought (or were afraid to) to ask. It takes the reader on a journey of discovery; a journey in which the author and reader explore together the hopeful, interesting, and exciting aspects of aging alongside the more difficult ones. She encourages the fifty-plus population to (among other things) confront their fears, discover their spiritual selves, re-discover play, friends, and family, and embrace the future. Each essay is judiciously sprinkled with quotes from a wide range of women, including May Sarton, Edith Wharton, Betty White, Betty Friedan, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Helen Gurley Brown, and includes dozens of practical and motivational ideas, concrete suggestions for moving forward, and guidance for daily journaling.
