AN INFORMATIVE UPPER Mar 18, 2007
Nice to read a good, well written, informative and inspiring book on women and aging. Pamela D. Blair, Author, The Next Fifty Years: A Guide for Women at Midlife and Beyond
Fascinating Nov 4, 2006
This is a fascinating and exciting book - part history, part anthropology, some science, some medicine, part phychology and philosophy and theology - but principally it is a call to optimism, a call for us to realize that we are never finished but perpetually created, and for us to live fully, to fully live. A must read for the over 60 set!
