Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
In reading Susan Swartz's wonderful The Juicy Tomatoes Guide to Ripe Living After 50 , I laughed out loud, recognizing so many of my own internalized myths about the aging process. What a relief to realize that there are so many gutsy and brave women over fifty who have turned life's detours and challenges into grand opportunities through their amazing resourcefulness and creativity. These passionate and daring risk takers are a joyful testimony to the new possibilities of womanhood. The lives of so-called 'ordinary women' are woven into the most extraordinary tapestry of good advice and celebration of joyful living. Resonating throughout every story is the profoundness of Eleanor Roosevelt's message, 'You must do the thing you think you cannot do.'
- Molly Murphy MacGregor, executive director and the cofounder of the National Women's History Project
