  •     I have truly enjoyed reading this book, have learned so much, gives a lot of insight into different areas of women lives and how different women used this time of life to help them.
  •     One thousand persons a day are passing the boundary of 50 years of age in the U.S. Unfortunately from the past we have an image of "old" as sick and decrepit and rather useless, and certainly powerless. This book dispels that image with strong stories of women who are proactive about their lives, even into their 90's! Each story is inspiring in its own, and the whole gave me a great boost in personal power. I have already given copies to my friends, and they have loved it too! Put this one on your Christmas list for your women friends of all ages.
  •     I love reading this book. It's full of stories of women as they reach their 50s and beyond and how life only gets better. These stories not only entertain they give ideas and make you appreciate being a woman of some age. Like I said I love the book and make it suggested for women of all ages.
  •     It's about time for a book like Our Turn, Our Time! I loved this book! Go Goddess go! Twenty five women are redefining the difference between growing better and growing old. I especially loved the chapter,"Sexy at Seventy" in which the author describes the kind of sex life I'd love to experience at 40. I'll have what she's having.
