Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Bookpleasures.com, 4/1/10
“…there isn’t one page in this book that you can afford to miss.”

TempoToronto.ca, 4/6/10
"Barbara Hannah Grufferman created this go-to reference…each part helps set you on the right path, and doesn’t waste time in getting to the point. That’s one of the beauties of the book: no wasted words. It’s all about practical tips for style, make-up, sex, health, finance, and myriad other topics, and as it’s written by and for women over 50, it all makes sense.”

wowOwow.com, 4/8/10
The Best of Everything After 50, a handy tome to help fine-tune your heart, head, health, hair and more ..."

National Association of Baby Boomer Women, 5/27/10

“Just over 300 pages, THE BEST OF EVERYTHING AFTER 50 contains, Grufferman says, everything you need to know to be the best you can be. But just in case her manual misses one of your top questions, each chapter ends with a handy list of websites you can reference to get more information. I'd call this a ‘must read!’”

StyleGoesStrong.com, 5/11/10
"After-50 Operating Instructions . . . a manual for getting through this decade with ease, grace, forethought and, of course, style."

    Highly Recommended!!!

    This book is a true gem. The book is filled with tips and suggestions that are easy to adopt. From hairstyles to finance, the information is so useful I didnt want to put the book down until I had scoured through all of the chapters learning something new along the way. The style is humorous and down to earth and you feel like your very wise friend is talking to you and guiding you to accept your 50s with grace and enthusiasm.

    I have recommened this book to my female friends and colleagues of all ages !

    Extremely informative!

    I am about to turn 50 and know its time to change things but had no idea where to start. This book was recommended by a magazine article and I ordered it. I have read it twice and bought products the book recommends and I have not been disappointed. Its packed with valuable info from all kinds of experts and the authors writing style made me feel as if I were chatting with a friend. A friend borrowed the book and found it very helpful as well.
