I wish I’d had access to Merrick Rosenberg’s book, The Chameleon, Life-Changing Wisdom for Anyone with a Personality or Knows Someone Who Does, about 30 years ago, when I worked as a trainer for a personnel management firm. Back then, I worked for a company that provided HR services for businesses too small to afford an HR department.

A Woman with (No) Strings Attached: A Memoir Author: Lucie Novak Reviewed by: Anne Holmes for the NABBW Another “slice of life” autobiographical tale, this one is an unusual and explicit memoir of one women’s journey to sexual enlightenment.

In fact, she writes, at age 58, having lived with a lifetime of boring, conventional sex with her husband, she had actually convinced herself... (Read More ...)

Baby Boomer Love (A Guide to Finding New Love After 50) Author: Marion A. Eggleton Amazon Kindle Nook Reviewed for the NABBW by Anne L. Holmes As a Baby Boomer woman who has been twice married, currently for over 25 years, I have often said that should I ever become widowed, I cannot imagine that I would seek to marry again. Now don’t misunderstand me: My husband and I enjoy a very happy and supportive union. (That’s why the statement above does not entertain the options of separation or divorce. ) But now that I am in my 60s, my attitude is that should something happen to change my current... (Read More ...)

Don’t Ask And I Won’t Have to Lie: “50 is the new 30” and other tall tales Beverly Mahone www.beverlymahone.com Reviewed by:  Anne Holmes for the NABBW This is Mahone’s third book, and sort of like the old “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, it gives baby boomer women permission to say whatever we feel will benefit the listener. Mahone says this book is not for you if: You’ve never lied to your children – “I’m sure Billy sent you an invitation to his birthday party, honey. It must have gotten lost in the mail…” You’ve never lied to get out of a jam – “But officer,... (Read More ...)
