In this inspiring and candid book, Jane Fonda, #1 bestselling author, actress, and workout pioneer, gives us a blueprint for living well and for making the most of life, especially the second half of it. Covering sex, love, food, fitness, self-understanding, spiritual and social growth, your brain, and more, Prime Time offers a blueprint, from A to Z, for successful living and maturing.

Highlighting new research and stories from others and from her own life, Jane Fonda explores how the critical years from 45 and 50, and especially from 60 and beyond, can be times when we truly become the energetic, loving, fulfilled people we were meant to be. Covering the 11 key ingredients for vital living, Fonda invites you to consider with her how to live a more insightful, healthy, and fully integrated life, a life lived more profoundly in touch with ourselves, our bodies, minds, and spirits, and with our talents, friends, and communities. 

In her research, Fonda discovered two metaphors, the arch and the staircase, that became for her two visions of life. She shows how to see your life the “staircase” way, as one of continual ascent. She explains how she came to understand the earlier decades of her life by performing a life review, and she shows how you can do a life review too. She reveals how her own life review enabled her to let go of old patterns, to see what means the most to her, and then to cultivate new goals and dreams, to make the most of the mature years. For there has been a “longevity revolution,” and the average human life expectancy has jumped by years. Fonda discusses what we are meant to do with this precious gift of time, and writes about how we can navigate the “fertile voids” that life periodically presents to us. She makes suggestions about exercise (including three key movements for optimal health), diet (how to eat by color), meditation, and how learning new things and creating fresh pathways in your brain can add quality to your life. Fonda writes of positivity, and why many people are happier in the second half of their lives than they have ever been before.

In her #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, My Life So Far, Fonda focused on the first half of her extraordinary life—what she called Acts I and II—with an eye toward preparing for a vibrant Act III. Now we have a thoughtfully articulated memoir and guide for how to make all of your life, and especially Act III, Prime Time.

She was outspoken about the Viet Nam war and she admits that she went too far. She was correct about the war being wrong for America, wrong for Viet Nam, and wrong for the world. The courageous men and women who served are to be honored, but the revisionsits should not criticize those who told the truth about a tragic mistake in foreign policy that cost more than 55,000 Americans their lives. Jane Fonda is a brilliant, thoughtful, skilled writer. Her books are well written and worth the investment of time and a few dollars required to find out they can benefit the reader. If you don't want to support Ms. Fonda, read a library copy. You'll probably buy your own copy afterward.

This is certainly not the platform to be ranting about politcal views; why not write your own book if you have such strong opinions; we will then see how many stars you receive. REVIEW: Again, 5 STARS to a woman & author intrepid enough to follow through LIVING HER LIFE MINDFULLY & sharing what she has learned with those who care to live a long, healthy lifestyle. Well worth it. THANKS JANE!

Correct me if I am wrong. America is the land of freedom. I respect every man and woman who fought in Vietnam; however, this space is reserved for book reviews. This book is insightful. It is well written. If your agenda is to prevent someone from stating his/her view regarding the war, find a different forum. I applaud Ms. Fonda for a job well done. Anonymous

I am reading the book now and as I expected she is very intelligent and quotes from experts and I always appreciate her insights on women's psychology . I have her other book too- my Life so far. She is a master at helping others from what she has learned and I appreciate it the research and effort she had put into giving a road map and comentary to those of us in our fifties who will be needing the road map she gives and her suggestions and opinions.

I am only half way through the book but am so inspired to get my health back on track and Jane breaks it all down to where it is easy to really understand about diet and why and why not to take supplements. I am motivated to do more walking and have noticed already that I have more energy and can walk longer at a time. I might mention I am 75 years young and feeling so much better by just moving it off the couch and away from the TV. This is a very well written book and when I am finished it is going to my granddaughter for her to get on track too. Thanks Jane

Jane Fonda had the guts to speak her mind politically at a time when that was not a popular thing to do. I plan to buy her book and I exercise with her tapes almost daily. Go Jane!

I am an RN who is now 66 and still working and running marathons and who keeps up on aging and maintaining the best possible health...for me and my patients. I have always liked Jane Fonda as an actress, exerciser and writer, but didn't expect so much good information from this book. She has done the interviews and research, interjecting experience from her own life, making a very readable and informative book. I thought that I was totally informed on all aging related subjects, but I learned more from this book. Anyone, male or female who is getting older HAS to have this information!

I understand the veterans that get upset to a point, but I believe it is time to let it go. When your young and naive and get caught up in the passion of what you believe in, it is easy to make bad decisions that you later regret. We have all done things that we are ashamed of and may have even brought shame on ourselves or our parents for having done them. I am a proud American and I support our troops no matter what, even when I don't agree with the decisions that my country makes. It is wrong to ask people to boycott B & N, they publish many different kinds of books, many of which I am sure are objectionable to someone. You should read her book, it is worth reading.

Apparently you Vietnam Vets can't read either. This space is for book reviews. Not your political agenda.

Jane gives her perspective on aging~ good things to think about for "your 3rd act" as she refers to the 60's +
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I've followed Jane Fonda and her "life insights" since the early days of "Feel the burn". The take away from "PRIME TIME", has been equally meaningful, insightful, and surprisingly relevant to me on more than one level ! I appreciate her sharing, as she is someone I have admired and believed in throughout...and having written these experiences for all to learn from will help me Soooo much in my OWN Act III. Great thanks, and I highly recommend!!!
