Overview

Ask some women their age, and they'll demur. Ask others, like Joni Mitchell or Cybill Shepherd, and they'll take up a sword. In this inspirational book, 50 women ranging in age from their 40s to their 60s-including movie and television personalities, musicians, and Olympic athletes-are presented in stunning photographs holding a sword to symbolize their passionate and courageous approach to aging. Their stories are told alongside the pictures, capturing the experiences of the 38 million women of the Baby Boom generation who are challenging the age barrier and living the second half of their lives to the fullest.

Coauthors Nancy Alspaugh and Marilyn Kentz are founders of the Fearless Aging movement, which encourages women to discard outdated views of getting older and celebrate who they are today. Joan Lunden, Leeza Gibbons, Shari Belafonte, Erin Brockovich, and Native American medicine woman Brooke Medicine Eagle are among the women who share their feelings about how they have become wiser and more powerful with age. The book concludes with an empty page for one final woman: a place where her photo can be added and her story can be told. As a tribute to a friend or loved one, this book is one of the best gifts a fearless woman can receive.

Author Bio: Nancy Alspaugh, 49, is the Emmy Award-winning producer of numerous network and nationally syndicated programs, including NBC's long-running talk show Leeza.Marilyn Kentz, 57, is a member of The Mommies, the comedy duo whose stage show led to a television sitcom, a Showtime comedy special, and the ABC talk show Caryl and Marilyn: Real Friends. Together Nancy and Marilyn have published Not Your Mother's Midlife: A Ten-Step Guide to Fearless Aging and created a stage show about fearless aging. Mary Ann Halpin, 53, is an acclaimed photographer best known for her celebrity portraits and album and CD covers, along with a vast body of other work. She is the author and photographer of Pregnant Goddesshood: A Celebration of Life.

    Photo Essay Extordinaire!

    Mary Ann Halpin captures the illusive. Her photographic magic finds grace, courage, and beauty once again in this stunning pictoral journey through several women's lives. This is a book of inspiration, empowerment, and self-fulfillment. You will read and re-read it several times over. A great gift for women you love.
