Apollo. Nov. 2020. 240p. ISBN 9781948062701. $29. SELF-HELP
In celebration of women growing older author Doust (The Crafty Minx) interviewed and sought advice from over 50 iconic women, including Iris Apfel, Patti Smith, Michelle Obama, and Tina Turner. They covered topics from health and wealth to ageless style and sex, gleaned from personal experience in a variety of careers and relationships. For example, senior media executive Kirsten Galliott talks about mastering the art of reinvention, while philanthropist Gene Sherman explains how a lifetime of traveling sharpened her cultural curiosity. Other women discuss the grief and heartaches that come with growing older, and how they held onto hope with love and resilience.
VERDICT This highly recommended comprehensive book is more than a pep talk for aging well. The inspiring messages will be welcome and valued by women of all ages.
