Some women dread their 50th birthday, fearing it's their farewell to good times and good looks. Others accept each age for the joy and insight it brings: these are the fabulous females Jaki Scarcello calls "Women of the Harvest." They embrace 50+ with a liberating optimism and energy.

With wisdom and wit, Scarcello shows how changing our attitude toward aging can bring about a virtuous circle of rejuvenation. Her exhaustive research entailed interviews conducted in five countries, as well as her own personal experiences with women who have blossomed in their 50s--and remained in blossom long after. She offers advice on boosting confidence, feeling sexy again, changing your life and re-embracing your femininity

Eye-opening and spirit-enhancing, this heartfelt book should be read by every matter what her age.

At the risk of offending those who enjoyed this book, I thought it was a load of twaddle. Maybe if you're 20 & wondering what the 50s might be like you'd find this useful/interesting/informative/inspirational etc (I'm sure that's what it was meant to be!) BUT if you're already there...well! Come on, by the time we get to be 50 odd 95% of us (I made that figure up, but you get the idea) have already worked out that you can still feel like a human being with a meaningful life! Perhaps the author missed the boat & this book should have been written in the 1950s.
