Author Name:Kay, Sheila/ Spencer, Peggy


If you’re approaching that huge milepost with less than your usual birthday enthusiasm, open this book to discover all the ways in which turning fifty might just be the best thing yet. 
The authors share a wide range of ideas for making this major life transition a time of opportunity, growth, and celebration.
As Sheila Key writes in the introduction: “What Peg and I hope you’ll hear among these pages is the irrepressible rustling of joy — joy enough to make you bust out laughing, sure, and the kind that comes from improving your mental outlook and physical habits, even just a little.
But also the simple joy of having lived this long, of being able to look back over five full decades and forward to who-knows-how-many more; not to mention...the joy of living more mindfully in the ever-present Now.”Bursting with anecdotes, activities, “things to try at least once,” advice from a savvy doctor, and clever ways to remember it all, this little volume sparkles like a treasure chest.
It’s as chock-full of useful and entertaining gems as your life is full of memories, regrets, dreams, and possibilities.

  •     I bought this book for a 50th birthday gift. He thought that it is very cool. He has been enjoying reading it!
  •     Bought this for my mom's 50th birthday. I couldn't decide between a gag or sincere one, then I found this book. It was perfect: funny, serious, happy and comforting. She loved it, started reading right away!
  •     Have you ever hoped to meet the author of a book you really enjoyed, thinking that you're just bound to enjoy that person? And then, you actually meet that author and think, YUCK?Well, that's not the case with this book. If you are lucky enough to hang out with Sheila Key sometime and you're like me, you will come away thinking, "geez, not only has she actually LIVED this book, but she is a heck of a lot of fun, too."I know, because I've known Sheila for 20 years, and even though we haven't seen each other in about 10 years, I've looked forward every New Year's to receiving her cleverly homespun newsletters. Through them, I've watched her beautiful children grow and seen how Sheila's smiling face has somehow retained that youthful look of mischief mixed with excitement--no doubt related to some new and interesting pursuit.Sheila knows a thing or two about nurturing wonder, mental and physical health, creative stimulation, and a juicy existence. So I for one was thrilled when she told me about her book project. Having been her editor when she wrote for a newspaper, I grew accustomed to Sheila always exceeding my expectations (which are exceedingly high). And, since I was just entering my 50s and really needing such a book, I knew Sheila would not let me down.I've just started reading, and if I wait until I finish it to write a review, that could take some time. As I figured out after the first chapter, this isn't a book you skim through. It's one you dip into on a regular basis, drink in inspiration, and, thus recharged, go try something new--or remember that long-forgotten thing that brings you joy and lightens your step.I'll be back when I have more to report. For now, I just wanted to say I love this little book and am looking forward to knowing it better. As I slog through my long work days (finishing a book of my own), it is my reward at the end of one day--and an inspiration for the next.Gina Pera, authorIs It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.?

  •     The authors present some creative ideas, but I wasn't enthralled over the book. A fun read; I wouldn't highly recommend the book.
  •     Purchased as a gift for my daughter's 50th birthday. Haven't given it to her yet.
  •     This was the year that I left my 40's behind and entered what I once considered to be the least desirable of all of life's decades, my 50's: Too young for Medicare and too old...
  •     This book is perfect for those in their 40s who fear the upcoming 50s and those who are already in their 50s.
  •     I read 30-40 books a year...50 Ways to Leave Your 40s: Living It Up in Life's Second Half....I donate the ones I don't want to keep to the public library...like this one....
  •     I originally bought this book for a friend (she's 6 months older than I). I loved it so much from what little I read, I bought one for myself. What a great book. Everyone should buy it! Funny, inspirational and a real guidebook for the next half of your life.
  •     If you know someone dreading turning 50, just get them this book. It is filled with both humor and practical advice.
  •     Gave this as a gift. It was well received. Both the recipient and I found it interesting at first glance. Didn't get a chance to red it before gifting it though!
  •     What a consummate achievement this book is. Written by Sheila Key in a folksy, colloquial style, it imparts great wisdom to those who would like to know how to look at their 50's and beyond as a time of fulfillment and joy. Peggy Spencer also did a great job. I like the "doc in the box" feature - it adds intellectual and thought provoking elements to each of the "ways."I highly recommend you buy this book and enjoy!
  •     This was for my daughter so I haven't read it. But she seems to be enjoying it!
  •     GREAT GIFT
