Fonda's (My Life So Far) latest book on aging is a pleasant departure from the usual celebrity publications. She candidly talks about turning 70 and offers readers a step-by-step guide to create a "life review" to help plan for the road ahead. Her advice for successfully aging in "Act III" of life doesn't differ from the usual stuff seen on TV shows and in magazines: get enough sleep, don't abuse alcohol, exercise regularly, etc. Her most insightful contribution is to challenge women to break stereotypes of aging, to contribute to society financially, and to share the kinds of experiences that only seniors can give. It's an upbeat, informative book that any female boomer would enjoy reading. [See Prepub Alert, 3/7/11.]
