     Thirty-eight million baby boomer women have already entered the Age of Elegance, which is a new stage of life with a new identity. More will follow; yet many of these women are making this journey without any real advance planning.  Many of them don’t even think of themselves as “elegant” but this transition into the second half of their lives can take place with style and grace.

            Now think F-A-S-T:  *format   *approach   *style   *tempo

These are the key elements which make this book original.  It is written as a travel guide filled with valuable information that will whet the reader’s appetite to explore resources in detail on the topics featured in the book.  The Table of Contents provides such curiosity-evoking subtitles as Change Your “Oil Filter, The FGA Quotient, The F-Word You Need to Use, The 10 Commandments of Aging Motherhood, and Think MSN, Beyond Support Pantyhose, and Just Heard It through the Grapevine.

            The author has networked with more than 25 leading women’s organizations across the nation and feedback on the book has been overwhelmingly positive.

5 STAR review on Barnes&Noble.com

"This book, written as a travel guide for modern maturing women takes the reader from planning this fabulous journey to the boarding gate. The author helps dispels those awful myths about aging and provides plenty of additional resources to explore if the reader wishes to go further in depth on a particular topic.

The Table of Contents will spark your curiosity and make you want to read the book to find the answer to such thought-provoking subtitles as "The F-Word You Need to Use", "Think MSN", "The Ten Commandments of Aging Motherhood" and "Beyond Support Pantyhose".  ~ CRG1937

Easy to read, full-absolutely full-of research, resources and information, Entering the Age of Elegance is a book for all baby boomer women who want to live this second part of their life to the max. I honestly couldn't put it down.

There are plenty of books on aging, but Entering the Age of Elegance stands alone in its completeness. The author doesn't just tell you what to do, she tells you how, and offers resources galore for more exploration of this rite of passage; this age of elegance. It shouldn't be called a self-help book, but a book for SELF.

The reader is first encouraged to re-discover who they are right now, at this moment in time. Then identify the qualities they already possess, polish them, or remove those attributes that would prevent them from living a life of elegance. And then finally, affirm the choices they have made.

Written like a midlife travel guide, each chapter is clear, concise, and full of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual guidance. The subtitles are as entertaining as the information inside is valuable. There are topics like, Change Your Oil Filter, The Will and Grace Scenario, Beyond Support Pantyhose, and Just Heard It through the Grapevine.

While some readers have labeled it a midlife road map, and some have called it a manual for living midlife, I believe that after reading Entering the Age of Elegance, everyone will agree that transitioning into midlife and beyond can now definitely be made with style and grace. Whatever the stage of your journey, you'll definitely want to read this book and probably more than once; and then return to it often for the many resources inside.~ Queen66
